Bay Vue UMW (United Methodist Women) met today and began working on a new project as a fundraiser for the church. These creative ladies are sewing a variety of items like purses, beach bags and pillows, each with their own unique look. The fellowship hall was filled with material and sewing machines while some of the ladies designed bags and others sewed them together. Their goal is to have plenty of them to sell at the Jane Long Festival in October and then use the funds to support the ministry of Bay Vue UMC.
During their business meeting it was decided that the UMW would begin planning their Second Annual "Back to School Party" for the students at Crenshaw and High Island schools. That event will be held the weekend before school starts in August.
Following the meeting and some steady sewing, UMW president Mary Raney made sure the group had a delicious lunch of tasty tacos and tempting desserts. UMW is open to ladies who are interested in serving the Lord through missional projects and events. For more information, contact the church and ask about UMW.
