Emory Methodist Women
The Emory Methodist Women have been busy this fall. The Fall Bazaar on November 9 was very successful. We made $898.35 for the various projects we support. We sent a check to the Methodist Children's Home to make Christmas special for three children. We also made a $300.00 contribution to the Rains County Good Samaritans.

Officers for 2020 are President - Kathy Kuba; Vice President - Bonita Calhoun; Secretary - Vera Barrett; Treasurer - Doris Bryant.

The Christmas party is Friday, December 6, in the Fellowship Hall. Bring a finger food snack to share and a $10.00 wrapped gift for the Chinese gift exchange. All ladies of the church are encouraged to attend and bring a friend. We will be joined by the Alba UMC ladies.

In addition to the Manger Scene we will have the village Bakery and Market scenes. We will be handing out homemade cookies and hot chocolate in the bakery, so we need some cookies baked. Please bring them to church by 5:00 pm.

We are asking Kids club and Youth to be Angels and Shepherds. Also, we would like people to dress-up as town people. This would be a great opportunity to do as a family.
