Yes, it has been another week of excitement at the Hampton United Methodist Church.
Monday started with FLOCK (Faithful Ladies of Crocheting and Knitting.) It is always nice to visit with the ladies and to see their latest projects. Beautiful patterns and colors, I think everyone is impatiently awaiting spring.
On Tuesday the Mission Committee met. They were presented with a brochure, put together by Mardell Van Kleeck, a very gifted lady, regarding the FLOCK group. During the discussion a plan was put forth to ask other ministries of the church to put together information about their ministries, with Mardell’s willingness to mock up brochures for each group. She will also work on a master brochure which will give an over veiw of the church and the ministries. Once this part of the project is completed, the brochures will be grouped together in a coffee mug designed specifically for the church and be pasted out to guests and friends of the church as they visit. Members and constituents of the church may also take mugs to give to friends in the community as an invitation to join us in ministry. Once someone receives a mug, they will be known for having been “mugged by the HUMC.” The idea of “mugging” came to me after attending an event at the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Kansas City. They do this all the time. Sounds like fun doesn’t it?
On Wednesday, Mrs. Bossie Cow, returned to HUMC after spending some time in retirement at Mike and Carol Nolte’s farm near Hansel.
Here she is in a snap I found of her on the computer. Bossie will help with fund raising efforts by the group traveling to Perryville, Arkansas this summer to work at the Heifer International Farm there. It looks like we will have around 15 participants on this mission. Conversation has also brought up thoughts of going west, whether to Western Iowa or Nebraska to assist with flood relief. That is exciting.
Also this week the April Edition of The Tower went out. In there you will find many events coming up that will require volunteer help. The feedback has been very positive. Here are some of the events, if you are interested in volunteering, please, let the office know
Tuesdays on the Town. HUMC and St Paul will be setting up a booth during the event in June to promote a Community VBS.
Painting: Soon we will begin painting scenes, backdrops, murals and props for VBS. This will be done in partnership with St. Paul Lutheran Church.
Franklin County Fair parade: Last year Sue received feedback that the float was missed in the parade. If there are volunteers to help with the assembly of the float, HUMC will be back in the parade with one this year.
Saturday at Franklin County Fair: In the past we have been asked to watch over the chapel at the fair. We are responsible for ‘watching over’ the church in the Pleasant Hill village on Saturday during the fair.
I have run out of time for this week. Look forward to posting again next week about the life at HUMC.
