By this kind of hard work we must help the weak,
remembering the words
the Lord Jesus himself said:
It is more blessed to give than to receive."

The Metro District project this year is Dallas Bethlehem Center. We will make a donation to purchase items on a wish list that will be given to us from Fran Lobpries. The North Texas Conference UMW project is Support your local Food Bank or the North Texas Food Bank.
Copies of the new 2013-2016 Handbook will be available at our meeting.
We hope to see you all there!
2013 Theme and Focus: 1 Corinthians 12:17-20
If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
The best teams do not have people with similar skills – they combine the diverse talents and backgrounds from a pool of diverse individuals and appreciate the gifts that each one brings to contribute. Great teams have people that know their role and appreciate others as well.
OUR DISTRICT PROJECT:
"Project Patricia" What does "Project Patricia" do? This ministry serves women in Africa by meeting a basic physical need. It makes cloth, reusable maxi-pads and sends them with Missionaries to be distributed to the women and girls, in rural areas, who are of menstruating age. They are easy and low cost to make, especially with a group of women working together. And you know you will have fun doing it together! This is a simple project to make a real difference to an overwhelming challenge for these women and girls.
