COMMUNION RAIL OFFERING

Golden Cross

The Texas Annual Conference Golden Cross program has been providing a healing ministry to persons in need of assistance with medical care since its beginning in 1921.  Many persons have been restored to health and have had their faith restored as well, through the generosity of Christians in the local churches and the benevolent medical care of doctors and hospitals throughtout the Conference. Please be generous.




We need volunteers to help hand out school supplies and run the game. We need to bring our game, banner, table decorations and school supplies at 3:00 to set up at the High School. Please contact Nancy Bowyer or Nancy Krantz.

Emmaus is for the development of Christian leaders who: Wish to strengthen their spiritual lives, may have unanswered questions about prayer, study and sharing their faith, and Christian's who are willing to dedicate their everyday lives to God and wish to rekindle their faith. Emmaus is a 72-hour experience where you will meet with Jesus, walk with Him, talk with Him, and forever be changed by Him. If you are interested in attending a Walk talk to Mary White, Mary Nixon, Stan McNear or Pastor Danny.

Emory Methodist Women

Our meeting was opened with prayer by Kathy Kuba, and a devotional reading by Bonita Calhoun. We then enjoyed a luncheon prepared by Helen H, Lorraine G and Jerryle M. It was delicious. Thank you, ladies.

Our Ice Cream social was attended by 36 members of the congregation. Everyone had a great time, and feasted on several different homemade flavors, and banana splits galore. We took in $150, which was donated to the van fund.

On Sunday, the 21st, a group of ladies from our organization presented the service. There was singing of praise hymns, scripture readings, and a reenactment of the first official meeting of the group of ladies who subsequently became known as the United Methodist Women, which is committed to mission work with under privileged people the world over.

We discussed either assisting or donating to the Back to School extravaganza on Aug. 15th. It was pointed out that the church had collected funds for this at the communion rail offering.

On Aug. 14th, we will be preparing and serving breakfast for RISD Intermediate teachers. Anyone wishing to prepare food, fruit etc. for this, please see Kathy Kuba or check the bulletin board in fellowship hall for a sign up sheet.

We closed our meeting by singing Happy Birthday to Judy Sorsby, then reciting the Lord's Prayer. Our next meeting is scheduled for August 18th. We extend a cordial invitation to all ladies of the church to join us for lunch, fellowship and planning our various mission activities.
