Women Making a Difference
Women Making a Difference 
Saturday, May 27
Join us on Saturday, May 27 from 9:00am - noon in Room 101 of the Adult Building. One of our ongoing projects is crocheting mats for the homeless made from plastic grocery bags. If you can cut bags, string them together or crochet, we have a place for you. Another project is coloring cards to send to shut-ins and those who are ill. A new project is coloring beautiful bookmarks to take to those in assisted living or nursing homes who love to read. We have "fiddle quilt" kits ready to sew at the meeting or take home, and we have the pattern to knit "fiddle muffs". These muffs fit on the arm, and along with the lap quilts, are used by dementia and Alzheimer's patients to reduce tension and promote calmness. Fun, food and fellowship available that morning - along with coffee. Invite a friend and come be a part of this ministry! Sponsored by UMW.
Broadmoor FREEcycle
need items lost in the flood?
Flood survivors, as you move back into your homes you may realize there are things you need. The Broadmoor FreeCycle page is a place where Broadmoor United Methodist members affected by the flood can post about items they need and be helped by those that stayed dry. Don't be shy about asking for help! Do you need a couch, a bed, an ironing board? Ask for it! There are several people that want to help, but not sure where to begin. If you have an item to provide, please post about it with a photo. The beauty of this page is that you can communicate directly with the person in need and set up a drop-off or pick-up time with them. Search for Broadmoor FreeCycle on Facebook to get started!
