It’s been another great season for Friday Morning Moms!
We have studied parables, boundaries, hoarders, blessings, thankfulness, prayer, forgiveness, love, resurrection, and the three simple rules. Oh yes, there was the special program presented by Rita on grieving the loss of a pet, and who can forget our 21st century look at the story of Jonah. Yes, even in our 12th year of ministry, we still discover new things together.
We’ll have another great season of learning, laughter, and love starting September 19.
Each week, we passed around the piggy bank to collect a small offering of loose change for Stop Hunger Now, an international organization that packages meals to get them to where they are needed quickly and efficiently. http://www.stophungernow.org/ At our last meeting, Friday, May 16, we collected $6.12 in loose change. So our total for the year is $167.54. Each meal costs $.25, so we have paid for over 670 meals! The packing event that had been scheduled for May 17 had to be postponed due to a transportation problem and will be rescheduled for the fall. Thanks so much!
Calendar Alert! Change of information. Double-header Craft Nights Tuesday and Thursday July 29 and 31. (Summer worship is on Wednesday nights.) We’ll be upholding our long tradition of getting together for two nights in the summer to create items for the Country Fair. Join us for one or both nights. Great fellowship and fun. Kids are welcome. Great craft ideas too!
Kids’ Club – A new program beginning this summer for children age 5 through 5th grade. Learn about God through fun science experiments and cooking yummy treats! Registration will begin soon. If you’d like to volunteer to help with Kids Club, contact Stephanie at Christianedsumc@gmail.com.
Kids Club will take place during the new summer worship series Wednesday nights at 7 o’clock beginning July 2. Stephanie will lead this service and music from the Work Camp will be sung. Everyone is welcome.
SUMC Readers (i.e. the book club) What would cause someone known for vampire novels to then write careful biographical fiction on the life of Jesus? To explore the reason, the SUMC book club has chosen Called out of Darkness by Anne Rice. This is Anne Rice’s first work of nonfiction—a powerful and haunting memoir that explores her continuing spiritual transformation. We plan to meet at 7 pm on Wednesday, June 4 to discuss the book, so look for your copy now and join us!
Enjoy your holiday weekend.
Grace and peace,
