After co-hosting World Day of Prayer with Plymouth UCC, we are planning for our Spring Bake Sale. The sale will be on Saturday, April 13, from 8:00a until sold out at ACE Hardware. All UMW members are asked to contribute. This bake sale is the first of two planned for 2019. The proceeds go to funding our numerous local, regional and global mission projects. During the March meeting, we collected an offering for the Legacy Fund. The Fund is a five-year campaign to support future generations of United Methodist Women. All donations sent during the month of March were matched by our Conference UMW. Several members met on Saturday, March 16, to label 650 garden stakes for The Big Garden. Thank you ladies! The Big Garden is one of two United Methodist National Mission Institutions in Nebraska.

150TH ANNIVERSARY COMMITTEE

The Committee is planning our celebration for September 29, 2019. The Committee is also planning some fundraising to help defray costs. We have placed a jar in the Narthex and ask that each Sunday you contribute whatever pocket change you have. The jar will be in the Narthex every Sunday throughout the spring and summer. We will also be selling 150" Anniversary t-shirts in the very near future. Watch for more information in the bulletins and future Grace Notes.
