The Upper Room announces its fall programs. All women are welcome to attend any of the following:

Grains of Wheat continues to meet from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. every Thursday for coffee, bread and good conversation. Discussion begins with a short essay or reflection with a following conversation around that theme. No charge to attend, though a donation is appreciated.

Circle of Hope meets from 10 a.m. to noon on the third Friday of the month. Participants will begin a new book Sept. 20 titled "Sabbath Sense" by Donna Schaper, which invites readers to a spiritual place of enough: enough time, enough rest and enough play. Coffee and dessert are provided. Suggested offering: $10 per session, which includes refreshments and the cost of the book.

Mother Bear Project meets at 6:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month beginning Sept. 18. The Mother Bear Project is a nonprofit organization started by a Minnesota mother. Participants purchase an easy pattern for $5 to knit or crochet a stuffed teddy bear that will be distributed to needy children in Africa. More than 88,000 have been shipped worldwide since 2003. Only basic knitting or crocheting skills are needed. A half-hour introductory meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 28. Making the bears can be done alone at home or with the group at the Upper Room.

The Upper Room is a nondenominational spiritual gathering place where women from all faith backgrounds and walks of life are welcomed and is located at 1004 E. Main St., downtown Merrill, directly above the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store. For more information or to register, call Sallie at 715-432-1261 or email pausesforyou@frontier.com
