United Methodist Women (UMW) is a worldwide organization with a very strong mission focus. Projects and concerns include issues on local, national, and international levels. Small groups, called circles, meet on various days of the month and at various times of the day to provide many options. There are also several special interest groups such as yarncrafters, quilters, and book clubs. The Monona United Methodist Women often join with women from other local churches for retreats and mission projects. Joining a circle is a comfortable way to get to know members of our church. Many women have been circle friends for years, and you’ll find that newcomers are always warmly welcomed.
Supporting Java Jive During Quarantine
You folks are AMAZING! Our sales of AFT products are as good as ever, even a little better!! Thanks - Thanks- THANKS. Your purchases are spreading your love of God to God’s farmer’s and God’s planet in 15 countries including U.S. [includes Wisconsin, and working with Wisconsin farmers to help form co-ops]. These farmers, men and women, use the premium from their fair trade practices with EEX to invest in their communities.
And we receive excellent organic products produced sustainably and no child labor in EEx chocolate!
While all church activities are cancelled due to Covid-19, we will continue as follows:
1- church is open from 9 a.m.- 2 p.m.
2- hand sanitizer by coffee cabinet
3- you may shop at display area [thanks Kay D. for making it more accessible]
or if you don’t find product of choice may shop in coffee and tea/chocolate cabinet. Place payment in container or envelope marked in front of plastic box. Checks made out to Monona United Methodist Women, MUMW.
FYI: Congo Whole bean is now available again. Whole bean Breakfast Blend available also.
Palestinian olive oil held up in Customs in West Bank due to Covid-19. EEX has small bottles, 250 ml, from another West Bank co-op, so I ordered a case to tide us over for a month or so.
Thanks again for your faithful participation in this UMW Mission.
In Mission together,
Kay Mackie- a Team Coordinator of MUMW AFT Mission
