Funeral Dinners
Funeral dinners are an on going service project of the UMW. The family helps plan the menu for the dinner. Special family dishes are included when possible. If you would like to help prepare, serve, or make a dessert, be sure to call the church office to have your name added to the list of volunteers. The funeral dinner is a service that is much appreciated by the grieving families.

Shawl Ministry
“Shawls…made for centuries universal and embracing, symbolic of an inclusive, unconditionally loving, God. They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, mother hug, and shelter and beautify. Those who have received these shawls have been uplifted and affirmed as if given wings to fly above their troubles…”

Whether they are called Prayer Shawls, comfort Shawls, Peace Shawls, or Mantles, etc., the shawl maker begins with prayers and blessings for the recipient.  The intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl upon completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent on its way.  Some recipients have continued the kindness by making a shawl and passing it onto someone in need.  Thus, the blessing ripples from person-to-person, with both the giver and receiver feeling the unconditional embrace of a sheltering Mothering God.

We were excited to have Pastor Tim present a prayer shawl to
Princess Jusu when she recently visited us. Princess is a missionary with the Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church serving in Monrovia, Liberia, as an instructor at the United Methodist Women's Leadership Training Center.
