Aurora District UMW’s upcoming Day of Spiritual Renewal on April 10 is going to focus on building a spiritual toolkit. We are going to explore tools for solitude – how we can turn loneliness into a walk with our Savior and isolation into solitude to hear that still small voice of the Spirit. We will be dusting off some of the ancient Christian practices and learning from those that have walked this road before us. While this day is intended as an introduction to the toolkit, hopefully you’ll walk away with new ideas and inspiration. Our goal is for you to find in the midst of struggle and turmoil we face today, still quiet gifts waiting…a deep and profound blessing in the still quiet solitude of the holy ground in God’s presence.

Please join us on April 10 from 9:30 a.m. to noon.  That day we will also be doing a memorial for those we’ve lost this year. Please don’t forget to report the names of women from your unit who have passed away during the last year. There will be a place on the online registration form where you can report that.

You can register for the Day of Spiritual Renewal here:    https://my.cheddarup.com/c/aurora-district-united-methodist-women

Methodist Women Pillow Ministry

32+ folks of all ages meet every other month on a Saturday to make pillows!! See those happy faces working and sharing their time together!


SATURDAY, March 23rd, a great group of people (pictured above) gathered to make 193 pillows!!

Plan to join us for our next Pillow Day – March 27 – when we can get together again!

Our care pillows are available for folks who have had surgery and would like some extra “love” to get them through their recuperation. Pillows are available at the back of the Sanctuary, or ask an Usher to point out the ladies that can get you more pillows.

If you are a hospital, recovery center, etc. please call the church office and leave a message for Carol Wixson, or contact church at MediaRelations@FirstUMCLombard.org.  We will get back to you and supply you with additional pillows.

Please consider donating to the UMW so we can purchase stuffing and fleece.   Thank you for your help and support!
