Homecoming Set For November 4th.
the United Methodist Women is an organization of all the ladies in our church. Our UMW Purpose states that we are to know God and to develop a creative, supportive fellowship. We try to always be aware of any special needs of our members or those in our community and to support all that we can. We strive to expand concepts of mission through making and meeting a pledge to the District organization of UMW, and by providing funds and programs or activities supporting specific needs in our community and the District.
We meet four times a year, and our meetings are usually about an hour long. We have two Co-coordinators, a Secretary, and a Treasurer, and hold officer elections each year in November. All needs of our church are usually discussed although the church has committees that address all the various areas of the church. Our support is a very large part of the mission program of our church, as well as its ministry to its members and community. This is a very important group in our church life, and all ladies in our church family are encouraged to take part in our activities.

Imagine, if you can, that you are a Poolville ISD student (elementary, junior high or high school) and know that lunch at school on Friday is the last meal you might receive until you return to school for Monday’s breakfast. It is hard to believe that there are students in our little town that are in this predicament, and yet, this year at the first backpacking, sacks were prepared for twenty-two at risk students. This number is down from previous years, but at one point in time 43 packs per week were being distributed.
On Thursday, August 30th, members of the Poolville United Methodist Church and members of the Poolville Elementary PTO gathered in a hallway in the elementary school to pack lunches for the month of September. A total of 100 packs were assembled. The packing started promptly at 9:00, and with all the help, it was finished at 9:20. A few of the packers commented that was a record for the time spent packing the sacks.
The backpack program was started several years ago by Dave Goodrich (previous pastor of the Poolville Methodist Church), and is funded solely by donations and staffed entirely by volunteers. It is estimated that is takes about $27.00 per month to feed each child that is served. Donations of any amount are certainly welcome. Contact Pastor Neil Norman if you would like to participate. His number is 817-832-6122. Packing usually happens on the last Thursday of each month.
