23rd Annual Style Show and Luncheon

October 30, 2015


…so goes the classic song from the 1935 Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers comedy Top Hat – the theme of this year’s premier UMW event.

You too, are invited, your presence requested, at the 23rd Annual Style Show and Luncheon held in the FUMC fellowship hall.  The date is Friday, November 13, 2015 Tickets are $15.00 and are available through the church office or from UMW members.  Chic fashions will be on parade from four area boutiques: Heartstrings and Texas Star, specialty shops located on the square in San Augustine and PRIM’Z and ‘Tis the Season, boutiques located in Hemphill.

Added to the fashionista fix: a runway show, fashion trends, and stylish tips, attendees will relax and enjoy a light, refreshing and tasty luncheon treat served by handsome waiters.  YUM!  What more could a body wish for?  Something to take home, you say?  Yes, that is a possibility too, for as many as twenty (20) door prizes are slated to be given away to lucky show-goers.  You may be one of the lucky holding a winning ticket.  But you have to buy a ticket and attend to have a chance of winning!  Call Donna now at 787-2183 to arrange for your ticket(s) – call a friend or several friends; it’s always more fun going with a pal.

You want to be a part of this… that time of year when it is fun for the people involved in putting on the show, for the models walking the runway, and for everyone who come to see it, especially if they are watching friends and family members strutting their stuff.  Doors open at 10:30, lunch serving begins at 11:00 and the exciting style show begins at noon. See you there!

“For I’ll be there

Puttin’ down my top hat

Mussin’ up my white tie

Dancin’ in my tails”

A Prayer for our Pastor

October 1, 2015

Lord, we lift up our pastor to You. Thank You for his servant’s heart. Keep him from losing heart when ministry gets tough. Help him prove faithful with the things You have entrusted to him. Teach him Your ways so that he knows You and finds favor with You as He leads us. Keep him open and honest before You and help him to represent the truth plainly.
