CHARGE CONFERENCE

  West Union UMC is hosting Annual Charge Conference October 7th, from 2-5:00 pm. 

 

UMW Fundraiser

The UMW has nuts and candies for sale. Order forms are available at the church. You are more likely to receive your favorite items if you order ahead.

Unfortunately, many of the items had a substantial increase in price, for which we apologize, but cannot control.

Thank you in advance for your continued support of our annual UMW fundraiser. Your faithful patronage enables us to be in mission to women, youth and children.

Missions

Supplies for UMCOR school and health kits are being collected. Lists of items are available on the table in Fellowship Hall. Cash donations are also being accepted. Cash donations are used to purchase toothpaste and pay postage to mail the kits.

 

Lydia Circle NFV Elementary School Project

September 11th, Lydia Circle presented the NFV Elementary School collection to NFV staff. NFV staff was very grateful for the donations. Our donation equaled $588! Items are given out at registration and throughout the year. 

Great job by all who donated, especially to the Lydia Circle ladies!

 

 

  

PRAYING OUR WAY FORWARD

We are One in Christ UMCprays.org

• A UMC Prayer Community

This UMC prayer movement is a response to the Council of Bishops initiative called Praying Our Way Forward. We invite all—across the denomination—to pray for God’s guidance as we approach the special-called session of General Conference to be held February 23-26, 2019 in St. Louis. Here’s how:

 • Join UMCPrays.org.

 • Pause and Pray four minutes from 2:23 through 2:26 AM or PM.

 • Participate in a weekly Wesleyan fast from Thursday after dinner through Friday afternoon.

 • Use the prayer calendar to pray for delegates and bishops by name.

 

If you have any questions or want to talk about the issues around the conference, please contact Pastor Chris.

 Pause and Pray Cards are available on the narthex table.
