The Hunter Hynds Unit of United Methodist Women met in September at Stanley’s Chapel United Methodist Church near Union City, with eight members and a guest present.

President Chris Cheatham called the meeting to order, led the reading of the purpose and gave the prayer following a listing of prayer requests and concerns.

Announcements were made that the district “annual day” was to be held from 2-4 p.m. Sept. 14 at Tiptonville United Methodist Church. The conference annual day was to be Sept. 20 at Lambuth University in Jackson, with registration to begin at 8:45 a.m. Included in this day of mission celebration was to be a morning message by the Rev. Roger Hobson and an afternoon sharing of her ministry, “A Place of Grace,” by the Rev. Diane Harrison.

The 2008 Feminine Fall Fling will be held Nov. 1-2 at Lakeshore United Methodist Assembly in Eva, with the deadline for registering to be Oct. 26.

Dorothy Bush, the outgoing president of the Dyersburg District, was a special guest at the meeting. In her remarks, she referred to the district as being a strong district that has done much in the mission field. Also, she announced that this year’s candleburning offering surpassed the $10,000 mark.

Mrs. Bush mentioned her excitement for the new leadership: Beth Adams of Dresden is president of the Dyersburg District and Angie Terry of Greenfield is the new vice president.

According to Mrs. Bush, the three mission studies for the upcoming year will be “Native American Survival, “ I Believe in Jesus” and “Israel/Palestine.”

Additional information concerning specifics will be provided at a later date.

Mrs. Bush gave a plea for members to give from abundance to Reelfoot Rural Ministry and to Mrs. Harrison’s prison ministry.

She closed the meeting with a benediction.

Candleburning cards were given to members to be completed by individuals. A pledge service will be presented at the Oct. 8 meeting at the church.
