Christmas cheer for church family
As has become its tradition at Christmas time, the United Methodist Women of our church spent Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 13, thinking about members of our church family who will have a difficult time getting out during this festive season.
As a result, the UMW gathering prepared 13 gift baskets for its program “Sweets for Shut-ins.” The baskets, filled with candies, fruit, cookies, breads, cakes and assorted other holiday treats, were then delivered throughout the community. Additional holly baskets were taken to other church members.
Under the direction of Kathie Hackett, the women meticulously prepared each plate of treats and then enclosed them in colorful cellophane. As much as this annual project is intended to bring cheer to home-bound individuals, it clearly brought just as much cheer to those who prepared the gifts.
Thank you UMW for your thoughtful and generous spirit!
