A Message from Heart of Longmont UMW

United Methodist Women of the Heart of Longmont have sadly cancelled our Holiday Fair which is our biggest fundraiser of the year! We are struggling with possible fundraising ideas and COVID is not making it any easier!! We have also been unable to have our Feed Our Souls dinners for many months which contributes to our mission fund as well.

SO…if any UMW ladies have not had an opportunity to pledge for the year, please feel free to fulfill that pledge and send to the church office marked "UMW Pledge" or send directly to our Treasurer, Marge Clydesdale, at 3400 Feather Reed Ave., Longmont, CO 80503. If the congregation feels so inclined and wants to also donate proceeds you can do the same and mark as "UMW donation".

Thank you all so much for your continued support of our Mission projects near and far.

We invite anyone from the church to swing on through, in front of the church, and say hi, drop off a gift or just honk and wave your support.
Our church is blessed beyond measure in the leadership provided by Emily to our youth group. Let's show her how much we appreciate her and "shower" her with HOL LOVE!

Emily is registered at Target where you can check out some items that they will need. OR you can just purchase diapers of any size...they will need lots of them! Click here to see her registry.

If you have any questions or need to drop off a gift early if you can't make it that day, contact Tricia Grafelman at 303-506-3678 or
September Compassion Offering
Boulder County Crop Walk
by Jan Timmons

Get out those walking shoes! It is time to get ready for the annual Crop Walk.
Even though it is modified, it is still the same crop walk. What is a modified crop walk? Everyone asks that questions. It is pretty much the same. You register on line, and find some sponsors. Then you set a date and time that you will walk. You can walk with whomever you are comfortable – family, friends, book club group, whoever. The money has to be turned in by October 25, 2020. To register and find more information go to:

Where does the money go that is raised? The money goes to Church World Service, Community Food Share, and Bread for the World. The Community Food Share says that, since the pandemic began, they are giving away more food than they have ever given away at any other time in their 39 year history. They have distribution points all over the area. Plus they actually deliver to low come areas such as mobile home parks.

Please support this valuable organization through your gifts. You can also contact Jean Malchow who is the head of the Crop Walk for our church this year.
Church Council Minutes
There is from time to time requests for Church Council Meeting Minutes. Reviewed and approved minutes are available from the Church Office approximately a month after each meeting. Please contact the Church Office for a copy.

2020 BUMMP Salmon Dinner
The 2020 sit-down dinner will not be happening due to the pandemic. But, wild salmon is still being shipped from Alaska and will be on sale through BUMMP at the local churches. 

Salmon steaks and fillets $10.00/pound, and donations are welcome since this is a fundraiser! The deadline to place orders for salmon is September 20th.

The salmon should be shipped, processed, and packaged by the beginning of September. Salmon steaks and fillets will be available for purchase.

Remember this is the BUMMP yearly fundraiser that allows BUMMP to assist financially with church and individual mission trip activities. We are in hopes that these activities will all resume by Summer, 2020 so your support is needed.

Contact BUMMP representatives at your local churches to place orders. If you don’t have someone to contact at your church, contact our BUMMP secretary, Kathy Sanford (, and she will help you with your order and let you know the times you can pick up orders at Lafayette United Methodist Church.

Blessings to you all,
The BUMMP Board
