Save the Date!  October 18-20, 2019

Each year the women from our congregation journey to Pine Lake United Methodist Camp for a wonderful weekend of rest, revitalization and spiritual growth.  Our retreat will be October 18 – 20, 2019.  Please contact Lisa Wink at lisa@sunprairieumc.org if you are interested in next year’s retreat.

 

Grace Cafe is a book group for women. We have one group on Thursday nights and one group on Friday mornings – pick whichever one works best for your schedule. Grace Café is a time for you to fellowship with other women, as well as grow in your faith through scripture, discussion, friendships and of course, food and coffee! Come and be pampered while you get together with both long-time and new friends to discuss a good book. There will be both large group time, as well as small group discussions. There is typically one book in the fall and one in the winter.

There is a Grace Cafe Lite group meeting during the summer from 9:30-10:30 am in the church conference room.  The group will share in devotions, fellowship and coffee.  Come when you are able.

We will resume our regular schedule in the fall, please check back for more information.

 

 

The Books Between Bites group will take a break during the summer months.  Please plan to join the group in September when we resume our group.

Books Between Bites is an informal group that gets together once a month to listen to a book review while enjoying lunch.  We meet the 2nd Thursday of each month.   Reservations are required, so please contact the church office to make your reservation.  Cost of the lunch is $5.00 and includes soup & sandwich.  You are more than welcome to join us even if you choose not to have lunch.

 

Our knit and crochet group creates prayer shawls, baptismal shawls, confirmation shawls, caps and lap robes. They provide a significant ministry of comfort and support.  This year at our Prayer Shawl dedication we had 40 prayer shawls, knit caps, and baptismal shawls blessed.  If you, or someone you know, would like a prayer shawl please have them contact Lisa Wink and we will make sure they receive one.

Would you like to be a part of the creation of these garments? We meet every 2nd and 4th Monday at the Wesley House.  The 2nd of the month is a more informal meeting with fellowship and a time to help one another with projects.  The 4th Monday of the month we share in a devotional, prayers and fellowship.

Please consider participating in this worthy mission. If you wish to discuss this further, please contact Lisa Wink (lisa@sunprairieumc.org or 208-880-2594) or Sandi Gordon (608.212.6597 or cgor-don1108@yahoo.

The Men’s Group meets Saturday mornings at 8:00 am in the church conference room.  All men are welcome to join at any time.  This is a great opportunity to meet other christian men from our church, discuss our faith and life issues and challenges.

 

The M&M’s Bible Study Group has been  in existence at SPUMC for over 10 years.  M&M stands for Martha and Mary.  The group meets every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month at SPUMC from 6:30-8:00 pm.  A book is chosen to study and the ladies in the group take turns leading the discussions.  The group also meets socially throughout the year.  New members are welcome at any time.

SPUMC, M and M’s women’s group will take a break this summer from reading and discussing faith building books.  Instead, we will enjoy doing some events and summer activities on a very informal basis.  We are open to having new friends, like YOU, join us on any activities we plan, perhaps one or so each month of summer.

If you would like to know more, about possibly ‘hanging out’ with some fun, kind, crafty women, please contact Donna Cole at dmcole@wisc.edu or Brenda Carlson-Hahn at carlson.hahn@gmail.com for more information. We will resume our regular small group book study in the autumn, look for more info in the fall or contact Lisa Wink at lisa@sunprairieumc.org in the church office.

Check back for more information about our Advent Studies as we get closer to November.

Our Lent Study this year focused on our theme of Hope Around the Table.  The groups studied the book titled Come & Eat, A Celebration of Love and Grace Around the Everyday Table by Bri McKoy.   In today’s busy and often superficial world, we all crave something deeper and truer.  Maybe it’s relationships that go beyond the surface or gatherings that allow for joy and pain.  Bri McKoy tells us this is within reach! All we need is a table, open hearts, and a simple invitation:  come and eat.

A copy of the book is available in the church library.

Have you wanted to take Disciple I classes but don’t feel you have the time for a 32 week class.  Good News!  Disciple Fast Track was created with you in mind.  The study breaks the Bible into 2 – 12 week studies, one on the Old Testament and one on the New Testament.   Please contact Lisa Wink for more information about options to participate in this small group.
