Blanket Sunday


Happy Holidays to Our Church Family,

The Mission's Team wants to give a Big "Thank You" to our Congregation for the support of Blanket Sunday, which was held on November 19th.

A total of $762.00 was raised for Church World Service (CWS) blanket outreach 2023.

Blessings, Mission's Team

And the Church tanks to Chris Moss for 11 years of presenting a program for Blanket Sunday.

Linda's Love Blanket Project
I am excited to say that this year is our 6th year of Linda's Love Blanket Project. This year we will be donating 29 beautiful loop blankets to our local hospital for hospice patients. Linda would love that and be so proud! I would love to extend a big thank you to those that helped me with this special project. Thank you to Ebby, Brenda, Marge, Coleen & Ayla as well as Don & Linda's daughter, Alesha Bright and granddaughters, Jodie & Mariah Wettleson for their hard work in making these blankets. Anyone interested in helping with the project for next year please let me know! We would love the help!
Thank you to Pastor Mee for the wonderful blessing as we wish these blankets not only provide warmth and comfort, but also love to those who receive one.
     Bod's Love & Blessings, Laurie M
And We, the West Union UMC thank Laurie for 6 years of heading this project!



(Otherwise known as “The Nuts”!)

Our second, and final shipment of 30 cases of nuts and candies arrived on November 6th . Thank you to everyone who helped on that day and in any way during this annual fundraiser.

We had another successful year! Thanks, also, to all who bought the nuts and candies.

We have some extra packages on hand. If you are interested please contact Marlys or Ardella. 

The profit from this fundraiser allows us to fulfill our Purpose of being in mission to women, youth and children.

God bless you for your faithfulness and generosity. 

Merry Christmas and Happy Snacking!
