EVENTS ARE LISTED IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER
THE BOOK CLUB SELECTION for March 8th is: SARAH’S KEY, by Tatiana DeRosnay.
In 1942, Sarah, a ten-year-old girl, is brutally arrested with her family in Paris, by the French police. She locks her little brother in a cupboard in their apartment, to come back to save him. A journalist in Paris 60 years later, writes an article about that time in the past. Julia finds long-hidden secrets from that horrible term, and connects with Sarah and her past.

United Methodist Women would like to announce their "Adopt A Cause" results for 2018.
We are proud to be partnering with Spread the Word Nevada (STWN) in the coming year.
United Methodist Women is the largest denominational faith organization for women with approximately 800,000 members. UMW was formed in 1869 by eight women in Boston. Their first mission was to send an educator and doctor to India. Members raise up to $20 million each year for programs and projects related to women, children and youth in the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world.
Our Desert Spring UMW members share in a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ. We support the United Methodist Women's vision of "Turning faith, hope and love into action on behalf of women, children and youth around the world."

“Thirst in the Desert”, your local charter of United Methodist Men, is an active group of men striving to be better Brothers in Christ. We are a small group but have evolved into a group of men that feel we can trust each other to discuss anything on our minds in a caring and supportive atmosphere.
We are looking forward to supporting mission projects, hosting several retreat opportunities for men each year, and serving our church in the parking lot ministry.
We welcome any and all men to join us at our Men’s Breakfast on the 3rd Saturday of each month at 8:00am.
