It's Summer in Texas!


It’s summer in Texas and that means temperatures will soar soon to 100. What else does that mean? Vacation, yes, but also lots of opportunities for growth and service for Central Texas United Methodist Women.  North District UMW is hosting Christmas in July, Monday, July 14, at 7pm at Joshua UMC. It’s a fundraiser for United Community Centers. There will be family entertainment, refreshments, fellowship and a collection of items UCC needs at this time of year. Things like paper products, gallon cans of fruits and vegetables, books and games for the Summer Enrichment program at each center, white uniform tops for elementary students, disposable diapers, hygiene items, school supplies, like glue, notebook paper, construction paper, markers, pens and pencils. Plus any of the Mission Sparks items that your district is collecting.

An exciting opportunity for young women ages 18 to 28 is the Real and Relevant Retreat at Still Water Lodge in Glen Rose beginning the evening of July 25 and continuing Saturday, July 26. The retreat has been well planned with guest speakers and information and activities especially for young women. If you know a young college-age woman, please tell her about the retreat and ask her to register at ctcumw.org or at ctcumc.org. There’s only one more week to register and the registration fee is $85. Encourage her to attend by giving her a scholarship. Both of you will be blessed.

Mission u is right around the corner. There are 3 locations this year and the weekday sessions offer day and night classes. The studies are great! I’ve already read all 3 study books and you will love them. The studies are How Is It With Your Soul, The Church and People with Disabilities and The Roma of Europe, which will be offered only at Glen Lake.  The first session of Mission u is at First UMC of Temple, August 5th and 6th. The Fort Worth Mission u is at Genesis UMC August 6th and 7th. Mission u is also offered in the camp setting at Glen Lake Camp August 9th and 10th. The youth study will be presented here only. Children’s studies will be offered both at Genesis and Glen Lake.  Be sure to register online at ctcumw.org. Remember a silent auction is also held at each event to raise money for missions.

Remember the August deadlines for so many things – Reading Program Participants, Mission Today forms including the studies, Burning of the Candle, Five-Star Giver forms, the third quarterly pledge and the Mission Sparks items for United Community Centers, especially any uniform tops or bottoms.

I hope each of you have a wonderful summer. Rejuvenate and revitalize. Be safe. Stay cool and connected to your family, friends, UMW and church.

 

Blessings,

Linda Hutchings

CTC UMW President
