UWF food and donations for Vine Maple Place "meal in a bag" ministry

hThe United Women in Faith’s current mission project is to assemble “meals-in-abag”
for Vine Maple Place’s food ministry. The vision of Vine Maple Place is to end
family homelessness in South King County. They have locations in Maple Valley and
A Meal-in-a-Bag gives a mom all the necessary ingredients she needs to make a
home cooked meal. Each bag has a specific recipe and the ingredients for that
meal. These meals provide not only stability and a chance for a family to connect
around the dinner table, but they also assist in helping a family stretch their food
On January 14th, there will be a poster in the narthex with sticky notes that contain
the needed food items for one bag. Take one or more sticky notes, purchase the
items and bring them back by Next Sunday, February 4th. We also welcome financial

donations. Make out checks to “Fairwood UMW” with “VMP” on the memo line.
Checks can be given to our UWF treasurer (Joletta Holman) or left in the UWF
mailbox in the church office.

A new in-depth, 24-week Bible study with Pastor Ferdie starts January 23rd, Tuesdays at 9:30 – 11:00am

Pastor Ferdie is offering an in-depth 24-week study of the Bible called “Covenant
Bible Study.” This study emphasizes the biblical concept of covenant as a unifying
theme through both the Old and New Testaments.
There is a short video presentation for each session. In addition to the book
chapter reading, there are daily readings from the Bible. A sample book will be
available in the narthex to look at.
We will take a break during Lent so we can all do a Lenten study. We will resume in
April after Easter. Then we’ll take a break again during summer months (July and
August), then resume in September.
You can order your participant study guide on Amazon or other sites. If ordering,
try to order the 2017 edition that is one volume.
Let Pastor Ferdie know if you’d like to participate so that you get all the
communication from him about the study.
