UMW taking a break over the summer The Carson Valley United Methodist Women will not hold a formal meeting in June, July or August. The regular second-Thursday of the month meetings of UMW will resume in the education room at the church Thursday, Sept. 14, at 11:30 a.m. There is a potluck luncheon after which the program will start around 12:15. For more information contact president Maxane Hylton at 782-5648 or Vice President Ann Santos at (623) 340-6914.
Mission U coming to our church in July The Carson Valley United Methodist Church will be the site for the California/Nevada Conference United Methodist Women Mission U July 28-30. The Mission U study weekends are scheduled three times a year--normally in California. District President Debbie Cole and Treasurer Martha Hoefner worked hard to bring this learning opportunity to the Nevada side of the Sierras. Four study areas will be provided to attendees. The first, Spiritual Growth--A Covenantal Community, will by taught by the Rev. Cynthia Stateman. The Rev. Sharon Delgado will lead the social issue study: Climate Justice--Call to Hope and Action. One geographical study--the Missionary Conferences of the UMC will be led by Carol Partridge. The other geographic study aimed at youth--the Missionary Conferences: “Legacy: Blooming in the Holy Spirit” for such a time as this! will by led by the Rev. Beth Cademartori.
Anyone can participate in the UMW studies. The nice thing about it being local is that the cost is only for the conference--no housing costs involved. The $75 fee needs to be in by July 10. After that another $25 will be added. Please see the UMW bulletin board in the fellowship hall for registration forms. There is some scholarship money available from the local unit of UMW. Please contact Maxane Hylton for information about scholarships.
