United Methodist Women - Summer Schedule


July - Summer Social: Thursday, July 10, 11:30am, Fellowship Hall

The UMW will only be meeting once in the summer months: Summer Social - Thursday, July 10, 11:30am. This is an open invite to our annual United Methodist Women’s Summer Social! Our mission for this month is UMCOR Health Kits. This is a good opportunity to invite a friend or neighbor to come visit our group. Please bring either a salad or dessert to share with everyone! For more information you may contact the UMW President, Jean Gates at 281-997-8777 or umw@clearlakemethodist.org.
 
Please Help Provide Health Kits for UMCOR
     Clear Lake’s United Methodist Women (UMW) will provide health kits for the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) this summer. Health kits provide basic necessities to people who have been forced to leave their homes because of human conflict or natural disaster. Health kits are also used as learning tools in personal hygiene, literacy, nutrition, and cooking classes. All kits are carefully planned to be as usable as possible in the greatest number of situations. Because of strict rules that sometimes govern product entry into international communities, it is important that kits contain only the requested items.
     If you or your group would like to contribute toward UMW’s summer project, please write a check payable to CLUMC-UMW, memo it as UMCOR Health Kits, and place it in the offering.  For more information, please contact the UMW president, Jean Gates, at 281-997-8777.
