Presbyterian Women’s Purpose:
Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves…
* to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study,
* to support the mission of the church worldwide,
* to work for justice and peace and
* to build an inclusive, caring community of women
that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.
Come join us as we try to fulfill the purposes of Presbyterian Women. There are serious and fun times in our meetings and always good times catching up with old and new members.
Our Next Meeting – Thursday, December 5 at 10:00am
Stay connected; join our Presbyterian Women’s group. No initiation fee or dues!!
It’s Christmas Time…
How did your family celebrate the Christmas season? Did you do the same activities every year? Did you have favorite traditions or favorite foods that you had every Christmas season? Do you have pictures, old Christmas cards or stories about your family gatherings or anything else that is meaningful to you? Come to Fellowship Hall on December 5th and share your stories. We’ll have tables set up to put your momentums on.
At 10:00 we’ll have coffee and hot cider plus a goodie or two to start the day off. Then Loren and Dorothy Tice will share their musical talents with us. They’ll play several Christmas duets and then accompany us as we join in an old fashion Christmas carol sing-along. Following the Christmas music will be a time to share your memories of Christmases past. Whatever you would like to share that most reflects what the season meant to you and how that has impacted your feelings today. Our Christmas luncheon will follow the sharing. Cost $6. It will be a fun time and the church will be all decorated.
If you need a ride to church for this meeting, please call Georgia Bacquet, 278-3172.
If you volunteered to purchase a gift for our Westminster family, please bring it wrapped and tagged with the name of the recipient to Fellowship Hall when you come.
It was exciting to send a $1500 check from the pie sale to our Global Mission Project:
“BUILD CONGO SCHOOLS.” Our Global Mission Coordinator, Jeanne Woodberry has written the following paragraph to let the congregation know how large a project this is and to express her thanks to a congregation that baked cakes and pies and then also bought cakes and pies. This is the most money we have ever raised with the pie sale.
“We want to express our sincere gratitude to the Congregation for your generous response – totaling $1500 – to this year’s Global Mission project Build Congo Schools in the Democratic Republic of Congo. There are now 1000 primary and secondary schools supported by the Congolese Presbyterian Churches. Only 21% are built with durable materials. The Presbyterian Church USA has been partnering with the Congolese to rebuild schools since 2013. Eight schools serving 5000 students have been completed with a ninth ready to open and a tenth under construction. The US Build Congo Schools Chair, Jan Sullivan, thanks us profusely for our support. So, thank you!”
