WORLD DAY of  PRAYER –Saturday, March 4, 2017 at 9:30 AM  The Methodist church is the host church this year. Please join us in a worship service and know that you are joined by women in more than 170 countries and regions all around the world. This year’s service was written by the women of Philippines.

 

Celebrate the Gifts of Women will be on Sunday, March 5, 2017. This year we will he recognizing one of the women who help to lead our church.  We will also be collecting the Birthday Offering during worship that day. You will receive a yellow envelope in the bulletin. This offering was started many years ago and has financed many projects that help to improve life for women and children around the world. Three projects have been selected for 2017:

  A)  First Hand Aid Rural Clinic Development Initiative—your gift will help build, fund, stock with supplies and staff six medical clinics in impoverished rural CUBA

  B)  The Family Justice Center Safe Haven for Domestic Violence—your gift will help build a new  shelter to expand their sources to serve more severe victims of abuse in South Carolina

  C) Navajo Water Project—your gift will provide running water systems to 40 families who live on the Smith Lake Navajo Reservation in New Mexico. Instead of storing water in pots and 55 gallon drums, households will have cisterns, pumps, sinks and showers.

When the offering started in1922, women were asked to give a penny for each year of their lives. Please consider giving a quarter or a dollar for each year to support these wonderful missions of hope.
