Minute in Mission Award Goes to Bob Talbot
Each year the United Methodist Women selects a non-UMW member be recognized for his/her outstanding work in mission and ministries at this church. This year’s honoree is Bob Talbot.
A monetary gift to mission was made in Bob’s name to the National UMW mission field to be used in multiple missions around the globe. Bob is a familiar face at FUMCD as he unassumingly helps others through Project Transformation, Meals on Wheels, UMM, Happy Feet, the Missions committee and his Sunday School class.
On behalf of UMW, we thank BOB for his care and service to our church and community.
