November is a month for remembering and giving thanks:
- On November 7th for the saints who have gone before us
- On November 11th to all the men and women who have served in our armed forces and fought to protect our freedom; and
- On November 25th for being able to live in our bountiful country.
Therefore, it’s fitting that we take a world thank offering at this time. For over 135 years, Methodist Women have given out of their abundance to the World Thank Offering to meet physical and social needs of women, children, and youth in our neighborhood and around the world. On November 11th,
Cindy Sale will present our short program about the World Thank Offering. We invite all Lovely Lane women to come share this time of fellowship with us. After the program, we will plan the programs and special events for 2022. We’ll also put the
finishing touches on our annual Advent Coffee and Ornament Exchange in December. All UMW members and all interested women of Lovely Lane are encouraged to join us for this
planning session. We need your ideas and input about programs or events you’d like to have us sponsor. We’d also like to enlarge our circle of UMW friends to include working women and younger women of Lovely Lane by forming new circles if possible. These circles may vary from traditional to non-traditional, from study groups to social action groups to social groups, from meeting to study the Bible to shared interest groups (quilters, knitting and cooking groups or just meeting for coffee and conversation). We’d really like to provide the women of Lovely Lane the opportunity to grow spiritually within a loving, caring fellowship, and allow us to continue to fulfill our UMW PURPOSE.
Lovely Lane UMW’s Bake Sale – November 21st
WE’RE BACK!! Sunday, Nov. 21st, is the date for our fall bake sale between our worship services. Donations of pies, cakes, cookies, breads, and candies will be greatly appreciated for the sale. Please bring priced baked items to the church foyer/narthex. Sale proceeds will be used to help support our various mission projects. Help us make this sale a big success!
The UMW Tuesday Morning Bible Study is taking a HIATUS from now until February 1, 2022. Hopefully, we’ll then gather again in the library and finish our study of Romans and begin a study of Paul’s letters to the Corinthians. We invite anyone who is available on Tuesdays from 9:30 – 11:15 AM to join us. We’ve decided to not only lug our mugs but also to fill them at home. So, bring along your favorite beverage. See you in February!
Upcoming December UMW Events
We invite you to join us for two delightful ways to celebrate the Advent Season! Mark your calendars and plan to attend our Annual Advent Coffee on December 4th. The date for our annual Dinner & Ornament Exchange TBA.
