VIC Hypothermia Outreach Program: It’s time to consider whether you can volunteer with others from our church to spend a night at the Ventures in Community Hypothermia Outreach Program (VIC-HOP) at Rising Hope Mission Church. Washington Farm UMC has committed to help with overnight chaperoning for four Sunday nights: February 11 and 25 and March 11 and 25. Please contact Lisa Webster or Samantha Barnes if you would like more information–or are ready to step up and fill this great need.
KNITTERS WANTED– Do you know how to knit? We are very much in need of several knitters to help resupply shawls for the “Prayer Shawls” program. Prayer Shawls are given to people during a difficult time. Baby shawls are also given to church member’s immediate family. Right now, we only have 3 ladies knitting and the requests for shawls are increasing and the supply bank is getting very low. Questions, call Gail Dawes. She would be happy to get you started. UMW will reimburse the knitters for the yarn.
UMW Prayer Pact Tea is today at 2 PM in the Fireplace Room. Hope to see all of the ladies of the church there!

At Washington Farm, our practice has been to celebrate the beginning of Lent with a Pancake Supper on Shrove Tuesday. Then the next five Tuesdays we come together for Soup Suppers. Our Pancake Supper is Tuesday, February 13 from 6-6:45 PM. Volunteers are needed to set-up, prepare food, serve and clean-up. Our Soup Suppers are traditionally prepared and served by groups and individuals within the church. Soup, bread and water will be served from 6-6:30 PM and Philip will present a Bible Study from 6:30-6:45 PM. Since this is a time of sacrifice, keep the soups simple and there will be just one serving. Volunteer on the sign-up sheet in the narthex.
