Cell Phone Donations
At our District meeting this past month, it was announced that in 2017, the Center for Prevention of Abuse had received over 800 cell phones from our District UM churches. I think it’s amazing that almost 100 of those phones were from our Morton church! Right now, I have 20 phones ready to deliver, so we’re off to a good start for 2018. You can drop them off in the gathering area at the church in a box labeled for phone donations. The Center wipes them clean and programs them for 911 calls only. They are then distributed to women for use in emergencies. What a good way to recycle your old cell phones.
Morton UMW & UMM Soup & Pie Supper
A Soup and Pie Supper for the whole church is being hosted by the UMM and UMW on March 28, at the church at 5 p.m. A free will offering is being accepted for the supper with those proceeds being split between UMM and UMW for missions.
Following the supper, Pastor Gabe and Debbie Veltman will provide a travelogue of their trip to the Holy Land in the Sanctuary.
Sign up will begin on Sunday, March 15, in the Commons Area, so that the cooks have an idea of attendance for supper.

Our next Book Club Meeting will be March 9 at 6:30 p.m. in Room AE1. We will be reading Educated by Tara Westover.
I have requested it be brought into the Morton Public Library on reserve for us starting six weeks prior to our meeting date. The author, Westover, was born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho. She was seventeen before she was in a classroom. Her family lived a very isolated life. They were fearful of education and the government. Once one of Westover’s older brothers enrolled in college; she thought she, too, should be educated.
This book is her memoir. Linda Coon
