UMW News

The next monthly meeting of UMW will be Tuesday, November 17, from 6:30 - 7:30 in the Fellowship Hall.00. No food will be allowed. We will try to Zoom the program for anyone who does not wish to be there in person. Please let Debbie Mecca know if you would like the Zoom link. The program will focus on the World Thank Offering: the Give and Take of Gratitude.

Age appropriate materials for our weekly lessons in October have been sent to each family. These materials include worksheets, coloring pages, pieces for art projects and more. The Zoom calls will be held on Sunday mornings and last 20-30 minutes each. There will be two separate Zoom calls—one for students in grade 6 and younger beginning at 9:00 AM and one for those in grades 7-12 beginning at 9:30AM.
If you have not received the packet of materials for your children, or you know of a family member, friend or neighbor who would like to have their children or youth participate in our Zoom Sunday School, please contact Debbie Mecca

Debbie Mecca is leading a Zoom Bible Study for Women on Thursday evenings at 7:00PM. The group has read through several books of the Bible and will be starting the book of Galatians on October 8. There has been much lively and insightful discussion and sharing and has turned out to be quite a bonding experience for those involved. If you would be interested in joining this study please contact Debbie and she will gladly include you.

The first meeting of this new ministry was held on Wednesday, October 30 at 7:00PM and will continue to meet on the same day and time weekly in Fellowship Hall. Do you know anyone in this age group who might like to join? Please have them contact Debbie Mecca or just come next Wednesday. Participants must wear masks and social distancing measures are enforced.

Youth in grades 7-12 meet each Sunday from 6-8PM in Fellowship Hall. All attendees must have their parent or guardian sign a form and provide contact information before they can attend. Face coverings and social distancing are mandatory and temperatures will be taken at the door. If you know someone who would like to attend our Youth Group (they do not have to belong to the church) or have lost the materials sent to your youth, please contact Debbie Mecca and she will provide you with the forms and information. There will be no Haunted House this year because of the pandemic but we are being optimistic and are planning to hold a Mission Trip in the summer of 2021. We are brainstorming alternative fundraisers as well. We are hoping to hold our first one in the near future.

BFF Kids
Our youth group for kids in grades 4-6, as of now, does not have permission to meet. We are hoping to hold a modified version once we are given the go ahead. Notice will be sent out when and if we are allowed to meet.
