Our church hosted a very successful Presbytery Workshop on October 5th. There were over 55 ladies here. Ten ladies from our church attended. Swain Hall was decorated beautifully for the continental breakfast and the salad lunch. We started out meeting in the chapel and enjoyed singing and a 25th Birthday Skit. A highlight of the day was having five ladies from Yarnell here. They had been burned out by the fire or affected by it. A shower of kitchen and bathroom items was collected for them. A large table in Swain Hall overflowed with the donated items. It was a joy to be able to help in a small way.
After lunch we shared our Mission and Program ideas. PW Women from Valley, Faith, Yarnell. Desert Palms and Fountain Hills churches shared their ideas.
Workshops were held. It was an informative fun day for all.
One of our goals this year is to strengthen our Bible Studies. “An Abiding Hope, the Presence of God in Exodus and Deuteronomy” is our study this year. Pastor Harrell Davis has offered to lead a class on teaching this study. It will be held once a month starting on Tuesday, November 5th at 10:00 am. You are encouraged to attend. Circles 1 and 2 will have rotating leaders and this is an opportunity for us all; please give it prayerful consideration!
Our Action Coordinator, Fran Gehm, reminds us that if you shop at Safeway you need to sign up every year for the award money our church receives on what you buy.
Two members from our church will be attending the Fall Gathering PW Synod in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on November 8-10.
There will be no Coordinating Team meeting in November.
