Here at Perry Memorial the very active UM Women have three fund raisers     annually — the Easter Egg Sale and two Rummage/hot dog sales — to raise   money for local community mission projects, special church projects as well as the national and worldwide mission work.

September is going to be a very busy month for the UMW. On September 12, 2015, Perry will host the Fall District Meeting. Lunch will be provided at a cost of $8.00 per person and will consist of sandwiches from Heavenly Ham, salads, desserts, and drinks. Those who are planning to attend must let Vivian know by September 5th.

September 19, 2015 is our Fall Festival and the UMW will be selling those delicious hot dogs along with lots of homemade cakes, cookies, pies, breads, etc. That mouth watering Easter Eggs will return disguised as an orange pumpkin and a White Elephant Sale will showcase unique treasures only found at Perry. Anyone wanting to donate baked goods or items for the White Elephant Sale (only gently used items and no clothing) please see Vivian or another member of UMW.

UMW is looking for gently used fall and winter clothing for a rummage sale during our Shepherd’s Table meal on September 26, 2015. Go through your closets and donate those items that you feel would benefit the guests we serve at Shepherd’s Table. The only shoes we would like to have are gently used boots. Please make sure the clothing is clean and neatly folded. This is not our typical rummage sale rather an opportunity for those less fortunate to obtain clothing to sustain them through the winter months.

Pray for our church and the outreach ministries within the church as we continue to fulfilling God’s mission.

Matthew 25 verses 35–40. “ For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you took me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me and I was in prison and you came to visit me.” Jesus replied: “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”
