Happy 2018 Ladies,

As you receive this we start a brand new year, and UMW wishes each of our family of worshipers a year of God's peace and love. Looking back there have been many losses, many joys and many answered prayers, but there is only one constant and that is His love for you.

For our UMW it has been a year of action as many attended Conferences and Meet & Greets in Gardnerville, NV., Ukiah, Auburn and Loomis. Due to the hard work that we have enjoyed (yes, enjoyed) putting together the two Rummage Sales and the Bazaar we have raised enough money to donate $1,000 each to the Cascade Fire victims and to UMCOR for the storm victims in Houston Texas for a total of $2,895 over what was budgeted for the year. We were also able to sponsor a Haitian child and Heifer Project International.

Bazaar Buddies put together 20 Christmas bags for our shut-ins and those who may not be able to attend church regularly. This is, also, done for other holidays several times during the year.

The installation of officers at the December 2nd General Meeting was a memorable event with Terry Raley officiating and Carol Aldrich giving awards for completing the reading program. All officers are happy to be serving UMW and with your support we live the words, “With God's help, we will.”

Don't forget the General Meeting and Brunch on February 3rd.

Thought for the Day:  What the New Year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the New Year.

Secretary
