LOVELY LANE UMW GENERAL MEETING

Ladies of Lovely Lane: Since Lovely Lane United Methodist Church is celebrating 60 years in ministry, you are cordially invited to take a walk down “Memory Lane” with us as we reminisce about being part of the Lovely Lane family over coffee, tea and dessert.

Time: Thursday, May 12th, @ 1:00 PM
Place: Fellowship Hall

This year in honor of Lovely Lane UMC, we will celebrate those “Special Moments” of our lives as members of Lovely Lane. Whether long-time members or having joined Lovely Lane recently, we are sure that we all experienced times in our lives as members of Lovely Lane which became those “Moments to Remember”; those memories which we will always hold dear within our hearts. Perhaps it was an especially meaningful service we attended, or our coming together to pray as we shared our grief and tears, or when we gathered just to enjoy each other’s company and share a laugh or two. There are many memorable moments we have shared as a congregation from participating in one of the various missions, programs, work projects, teaching Sunday School, and singing in the choir, to those special events so important in our lives and the life of our church. Please bring any mementos, photos
and stories of your time as a member of the family of Lovely Lane you wish to share. As we remember those precious times of our lives and in the life of Lovely Lane, we will surely share a few smiles. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us on Thursday, June 16th, at 6:30 PM for a potluck dinner
and to hear Margaret Nelson speak about the Afghan Sponsor Circle Refugee Resettlement Program.

UNITED WOMEN OF FAITH

United Methodist Women is now United Women in Faith! The renaming is part of a refreshing of the organization that includes an array of new and improved programs to nurture current members and welcome new women to join to put their love in action on behalf of women, children, and youth.
United Women in Faith seeks to connect and nurture women through Christian spiritual formation, leadership development, creative fellowship, and education so that they can inspire, influence, and impact local and global communities.

The changes are designed to address the different needs and life stages of current members and new women and expand options for membership and engagement. The new name also aims to welcome current members whose local churches may choose to disaffiliate from The United Methodist Church as well as women of other faith traditions who want to join.

All are welcome! “Watch for new opportunities to get involved!!
