Ladies' Night Circle is opened to any woman attending the White Cloud United Methodist Church.  We meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM in the lobby of the church building. The Night Circle provides the Upper Room Devotionals for our church family.  We also provide the paper supplies for funeral luncheons. We also donate money for mission projects for our church, city, and mission projects sponsors by The United Methodist Church. At our monthly meeting besides doing the planning of upcoming events and projects, we have a devotional and enjoy a time of dessert and fellowship with each other.  For more information, contact Barbara Anderson at 231-689-1063 or the church secretary, Barb Thatcher, at the church office (231-689-5911).

JANUARY 16, 2018

                Meeting called to order with President Pam offering prayer with 7 ladies present.

                Minutes were read with Barb A. making motion seconded by Phyllis accepting them as read.  Motion carried.

                Treasurer report showed balance of $251.50.  Phyllis made motion seconded by Barb T. to accept report as read.  Motion carried.

                Old business:  Barb A. reported that 20 Christmas bags and 7 stockings were taken to the Food Pantry.  Since it was week before Christmas she thought it was best to let people take what they needed.  She had a real concern that two people took them all.  Perhaps have Christmas bags done earlier so people have a chance to get them for Christmas.  We need to pray for greedy people.

                Diane said we need money as we have several bills coming in.

                We decided on a soup/dessert supper on Feb.10 at 5:00 to 6:30pm.  Donation.

Barb A. – Broccoli cheese soup and pumpkin stew.

Phyllis – White chili

Sandy – Chicken noodle soup

Pam – Hamburg/tomato soup

Diane – Minestrone soup

Barb T. – Potato soup

Joan – Bean soup

Annette – Chili

Candy - Oyster crackers

Jane – Bread & butter

                All ladies will bring a dessert.

                Barb A. gave a very interesting devotion on a glass half full poured into another glass making it full.  We have different decisions to make in life.  She read Romans 12:3-6.  She gave example of a very thoughtful decision she had to make.

                She served a very delicious apple dessert with whipped topping.

                Pam made motion seconded by Diane to adjourn.  Motion carried.
