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).



NIGHT CIRCLE                                                                  MAY 15, 2018

Vice president Barb Anderson called the meeting to order with prayer.  Eight ladies present.

Minutes were read, Jane made motion seconded by Doris to accept minutes as read.  Motion carried.

Treasurer report showed a balance of $1,313.33 with expenditures of $104.00 for Upper Room, $75.00 for Free Fishing Day celebrating Father’s Day, $410.00 Health Department license fee.  Esther Circle voted to pay half on the license fee at meeting in May.  Phyllis made motion seconded by Jane to accept Treasurer report as read.  Motion carried.

Barb T. had an article from the Indicator about the community work done by the students in Voice of Reason and that the Methodist Church ladies had served them lunch.  Diane said they  completely tore the old ceiling out of the restore room at Benny’s house, job well done.

Barb reported that Health Department inspection everything approved except the bleach line in the dish washer which seems to be a continuous problem.  Bill VanAndel had Gordon’s Foods replace the line after the last inspection.  Bill will take care of this problem.

No old business.

New business, Barb A. mentioned that June circle meeting fell on week of Vacation Bible School.  We will change June meeting date to June 12th.

Doris asked if the ladies would like to do a video to send to Candy & Jenetia on Facebook that they are missed.  Each lady gave their greeting.

Jane suggested that when we have to order supplies again to check on price of paper supplies in place of foam.  Diane will check into this when she orders supplies again.  Also concern if plastic table covering is needed as it has become expensive.  If bleach water would be sufficient to keep tables from being stained.  Jane suggested we use our dishes as much as possible in place of foam.

Sandy asked if ladies would like to order something for Father’s Day.  Jane made motion seconded by Barb T. to order tape measure with LED light with verse “A Father’s Love Is Beyond Measure.”  Motion carried.  Meeting adjourned.

Phyllis gave devotions from favorite readings, A Time to Break Down and a Time to Build Up and how prayer can lighten our burdens.  And reflections, we are going somewhere or no where.

Phyllis served delicious cookies and coffee.
