United in Spirit – Getting ready for the annual yard sale

Monthly report from the Zion United Church Women about their ongoing activities.

Ten ladies attended the May meeting of Zion’s United Church Women when Lynn Lancaster, president, welcomed everyone. Jacklyn Desrosiers led the devotional, taken from the book I’ll Be Glad to Give a Devotional by Amy Bolding. The scripture was from Proverbs. The message was “We can’t quit now,” to make other happy is a virtue, a gift from Go, a blessing to the work; Take hold of yourself when tempted to quit.

After approval of the agenda with additions and approval of the minutes, it was onto old business. We had designated some of our funds towards an automatic dishwasher, so hopefully we will soon have enough with donations to purchase this much needed item.

The U.C.W. Will be leading one of theSunday worship services in June.

Correspondence was dealt with, some from Narmata, 1st and Carmen, a missionary working in Mexico. The date for the Western Women’s Conference is Sept. 27-29 in Naramata. RBC where we get our Daily Bread booklet from is offering a free book entitled Foregiveness, which we will get.

Reports were given next. Reta Robertson handed out the written Treasurer’s Report. Our sunshine lady Dorothy Pears reported having sent some cards to those celebrating a birthday. Hilda Drinkwater in charge of archives has a few more pictures to put up and she keeps our albums u to date. Phyllis Gray for Publicity gave her report next. Reta reported for our Outreach program and said how busy they were when we hosted Soups On Apr. 19. Zion United will be hosting Soups On again May 24. She also reported that people are still saving and giving her Campbell soup labels and used stamps. We really appreciate all those who do this as it helps with Christian work elsewhere.

We then had our coffee break and fellowship time before continuing the meeting. Lynn commented on the BC U.C.W. Conference.

Zion United Church will be having a Yard Sale on June 1 with household items and some furniture, so watch for posters and a notice in Coming Events in The Journal. The time will be 9 am to noon with NO early bird sales. If anyone had any items they wish to contribute towards this event, we would very much appreciate them. They can be brought to the hall most week days as our minister is usually there, or can be brought to the hall on Friday, May 31 in the morning as we we will be pricing items then.

Our next meeting is June 4 at 2 pm and any ladies who are interested are welcome to come asa a visitor. We then repeated the U.C.W. Benediction together.

Phyllis Gray
