United Methodist Women Celebrate 150 Years of Service
Celebration of 150 years of 
United Methodist Women
and Day of Giving

On Saturday, March 23, the United Methodist Women are having a special worship service at 10 am with a reception to follow. This is a celebration of the UMW and their service for 150 years. The accompanying Day of Giving supports the initiatives of the UMW.

All ladies of the church are invited.

Susan Landry, District Superintendent for the LaGrange district, will lead the service.

A Closer Look at the United Methodist Women
On March 23, 1869, eight women gathered at Tremont Methodist Episcopal Church in Boston, Massachusetts, and organized the Women's Foreign Missionary Society, what would become United Methodist Women. Those women raised money to send a doctor, Clara Swain, and a teacher, Isabella Thoburn, to India as missionaries to serve the women of that nation.

Since then, for nearly 150 years, United Methodist Women has evolved to become the largest women's faith-based service and advocacy organization, underwriting programs that provide life-changing opportunities for women, children and youth.

To celebrate the dedication and foresight of our foremothers, every March 23 has become A Day of Giving to the Legacy Fund Endowment Campaign.

The Legacy Fund is a forward-looking permanently invested endowment, the earnings of which will strengthen our organization, so that future giving can be even more directly linked to our projects and partners, addressing injustice and alleviating suffering. Your contribution to the Legacy Fund will underwrite endeavors to strengthen our internal capacity (in lieu of core expenses) to further invest in life-changing programs and services, that create a promising tomorrow for future generations of United Methodist Women members in answering God’s call to serve.
Easter Flowers
to Honor or Memorialize Your Loved Ones
We invite you to purchase colorful potted Easter Begonias through the church. Please complete a form, found throughout the church, to purchase flowers or make a donation in memory or in honor of a loved one. Return your completed forms and payment to the church office during business hours or put it in Sunday's offering plate.

The cost is $15 each and the deadline is Wednesday, April 17 at Wednesday Night Supper. 

NOTE: Only the first 25 flower orders will receive a begonia to take home, however, any orders after that WILL be included on the dedication list.
This Week's Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
