United in Spirit – Bean Supper plans done, Friendship Tea discussed

Monthly activity report from the Zion United Church Women.

Eight ladies attended the United Church Women’s meeting on March 3 at 2 pm in Zion United Church Hall.

President Reta Robertson welcomed everyone and thanked them for attending.

Phyllis Gray lead the Devotional with a reading from the book A Diary of Daily Devotions by G.M. Morrison and H.W. Vaughan. The theme was based on the 23rd Psalm, the message being that Christ is the Good Shepherd and how we can never drift beyond God’s love and care. She closed with prayer.

Next was the approval of the agenda and last meeting’s minutes.

Old Business was discussed – The Friendship Tea evaluation and the UCW service on Feb. 22. We each brought three Easter cards for the residents of Garden Oasis to use. Bulletins for the World Day of Prayer were handed out and readers appointed. Plans were finalized for our 69th annual Bean Supper.

Correspondence was dealt with next – an email from Carmen Salasacan with her news. A letter and thanks for support fro Naramata Centre, newsletter from Centre for Christian Studies – Thank you from First United Church for our support and a thank you letter fro the national UCW.

Reports were next and Colleen Mierau handed out her written report and it was voted on and accepted. Dorothy Pears read her report as Sunshine Lady. She had sent out six cards. Phyllis Gray reported for Publicity, and Helen Drinkwater gave her report on Archives. Reta reported on our Outreach program and noted that the United Church will host Soups on April 17 in the United Church Hall. She has received many Campbell labels – please note that these labels must have the bar code on them and the word Campbell must be intact. Please make sure these labels are complete and not cut down the middle – otherwise they are not accepted by the company. Thank you so much for passing these labels on to us and also thank you for the used stamps. We cannot carry on this work without your faithful support. They help with Christian work elsewhere.

We paused for refreshments and fellowship.

New Business brought us together again with a reminder of the BC fConference UCW, AGM meeting in April which Jacklin Desrosiers will attend.

The next meeting will be April 7 at 2 pm in our church hall. If any ladies are interested in our work you would be most welcome to join us or come as a visitor,

Phyllis Gray
