Merry Christmas from Dayspring United Methodist Women!
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a huge thank you to you for your support in 2018! With your generosity and prayers we’ve made a difference in the lives of children, women and youth locally and around the world. In 2019 we’ll celebrate our 150th anniversary, so look for ways to join in the fun!
Here are the meetings in December where you can join in the merry-making:
The Greeting Card Circle will get together on Thursday, December 6 at 11:30am at Rigatony’s in Chandler. The Greeting Card Circle also has cards for you to purchase – give the gift that gives twice – one warm greeting for your friend or loved one and one because all proceeds from our card circle go directly into supporting missions of the United Methodist Church.
Mary Martha Circle will get together on Thursday, December 6 at 7:00pm at Carolyn’s home. Marilyn Miller will provide the program.
Connie Reading Circle will not meet in December
Thursday, December 13th at 6:30pm we’ll all get together for our annual Christmas potluck in the Adult Room at Dayspring. The unit will provide the ham and the beverages, you may bring a side or desert. Please email us for more info or if you need a ride.
We look forward to seeing you at a circle meeting or the potluck! Dayspring United Methodist Women welcomes all women 14 – 114 that want to have a passion for helping women, children and youth. For more info on UMW please email us with any questions.
