Mini-Retreat scheduled for May 8

Everyone is cordially invited to attend a mini-retreat day on Tuesday, May 8 at 11:00 AM, for a time of prayer, a program, a craft and fellowship. Darlene Logston Bonner will present a program on the US2 Missionary work she has done. She also has become active as an Origami Owl jewelry designer and will offer a “jewelry bar,” splitting the profits to raise funds for the UMW.
After Darlene’s presentation, Kay Coombs will lead a craft project – painting pine cones for table decorations.

To prepare pine cones:
