UM Women Assembly 2018, May 18 through 20, Columbus, Ohio. Can you say, "Road trip!?"
Lenten Breakfast at Bear Lake UMC was enjoyed by all who attended.
An array of women from churches of several denominations shared in a Lenten breakfast at the Bear Lake UMC on March 22. The meal included an egg/sausage casserole, muffins, fruit, and beverages. The guest speaker was Mary Ann Johnston who experiences gifts of healing by talk-ing, touching, and listening. Things miraculously happen to those with whom she comes in contact. A gentleman sang hymns while a lady dressed in a beautiful, silky, butterfly outfit danced. Holy Communion was served. Thirteen or fourteen women from the Frankfort and Elberta UMCs attended and enjoyed the event.
