UMW Picnic Celebrates "Memorable Moments in Ministry"

Please join us for the annual UMW Picnic in Parish Hall on Tuesday, July 9, at 6:30 p.m. Our potluck dinner will be followed by “Memorable Moments in the Ministry,” a time during which members of Church Street’s clergy and staff will share humorous and meaningful stories from their time at Church Street and other churches. This is a not-to-be missed evening, so please bring your favorite dish and enjoy the fellowship as well as the program. Drinks, plates and utensils will be provided. A picnic tradition is to bring supplies for one of our UMW missions, and this year we would like to restock our Sharing Shop.  While sample sizes are always welcome, larger sizes are very appreciated and can be purchased quite inexpensively at Dollar General, Big Lots, etc. Our Sharing Shop distributes all of the following items on a regular basis:

*shampoo and conditioner
*bar soap, deodorant, body lotion, feminine hygiene products
*toilet paper, razors, toothpaste
*diapers-any size
*dishwashing liquid, laundry detergent

Those of us who have worked in the Sharing Shop and on the Benevolence Team can attest to the fact that these items are so needed and so appreciated by our Sharing Shop clients. Although the Picnic is a UMW-sponsored event, all Church Streeters and friends are welcome.
