|WOMEN'S SEWING GROUP|
|The Women's Sewing Group has been busy this past year. They have made
41 double bed size comforters, 13 crib quilts, 8 knit baby Afghans,
about 12 pillows and numerous articles of children and women's
clothing. These items are given to TMM to help those in need. We can
always use good used sheets or yardage. Our meeting day is on the 3rd
Tuesday of each month from 9:00 to 2:30 in Fellowship Hall. If you
would like to be a part of this group, please
contact the church office at
Women, are you looking for a way to connect with other
women in the church? Would you like to be involved in some hands-on
mission work? Are you concerned about issues relating to women and
children in our world today?|
Here is an invitation for you:
We will also be involved in making
bibs and crib sheet covers for an area day nursery, donating baked
goods to Ronald McDonald House (discounted lodging for families who
are in Tucson while they have children in hospital care for serious
illnesses), helping with projects for Children's Village (a housing
project for children who need temporary care due to abuse or family
crisis situations - this is a part of Tucson Metropolitan Ministries,
TMM), and helping with the Red Bazaar (a fall bazaar to raise funds
for local and global support of women and children). We enjoy time to
get acquainted, have some Bible study, do book sharing, work on
projects, and be in prayer. We love to laugh and have some social
time together as well.
Our members include single women, married women, mothers, grandmothers, and working women ranging in age from 20s to 30s on up. We welcome any woman of any age. If child care is a concern we can arrange baby-sitting, for the evening, at the church. Please join us, we'd love to meet you!
UNITED METHODIST WOMEN
CATALINA UMC, 2001
Another year has come and gone, and if
you are anything like me, you find yourself asking from time to time
where it went. One thing we do know as United Methodist Women is that
the year 2001 has kept us very busy and the results give us great
Thanks to you - members of Catalina United Methodist Church and friends, we had a banner year at our annual Red Bazaar. As promised, half of our net proceeds for both the Bazaar and the Mini Bazaar was given to Mission Undesignated which is our global missions, and half of it was given to local missions and ministry in community and church.
Some of our Circles also have special projects to which they contribute throughout the year - so with their contributions and the money made available from funds earned through the Albertson's Project, the Greeting Cards and the Red Bazaar, the following groups were helped in 2001: Wesley Community Center in Phoenix, TMM Family Services; Sidewalk Sunday School; Catalina UMC Day School; Catalina UMC Youth for Camp Scholarships; Catalina UMC Christian Education; Wesley United Methodist Campus Ministry (ministering to Pima and UofA students); financial help provided to Shalom Circle for making smocks for Helen Street Day Care Center; Financial assistance given to the women of the San Luis Rio Conference in Mexico to help them host the annual United Methodist Women's meeting; Community Food Bank; Travelers Aid; World Care; La Frontera; and Youth on Their Own.
In January we held a District-Wide Mission Study on The Children of Africa and 11 churches were represented. We hosted The World Day of Prayer program for Church Women United in March. We provided Children's Sabbath materials which were used in worship. Eleven of our women attended our 2001 School of Christian Mission. We were honored to be given a certificate recognizing our Unit as the outstanding unit of the year from the South District and took second place in attendance for the whole Conference.
There are many feelings of gratitude that I have in my heart as the Past-President of Catalina United Methodist Women but the most important one will always be the feeling of support from members of the Unit and also support from the congregation. YOU, each one, made all of the above good things possible. Thank you, thank you.
There is a whole new team now ready to lead us in 2002 and they each need our prayers and our support. The work the women do is unparalleled in any other group of the church. If you are a woman reading this and you aren't a part of this group we hope you will consider joining. The Unit meeting is the first Tuesday of each month in Room H230 at
