United in Spirit – Inter-Church Bazaar looking for crafts and baking

Monthly news from the Zion United Church Women in Ashcroft.

Eight ladies answered the roll call at our October meeting. President Reta Robertson warmly welcomed everyone and thanked them for their dedication.

Joyce Freeman led us in the Devotional, taken from There Is a Season written by Betty Radford Turcott. The theme was on Thanksgiving. The scripture was from Luke 17:11-19 about the healing of the 10 lepers and only one coming back to thank him. Let us be grateful for all we have and give thanks to God every day. She closed with prayer.

For correspondence, we received a newsletter from Naramata Centre and an update from Carmen Salacsacan. There was also a newsletter from First United Mission with World Day of Prayer information.

Treasurer Colleen Mierau passed around her written report which was voted on and accepted. Dorothy Pears, sunshine lady, gave her report on cards sent out. Phyllis Gray, publicity, gave her report verbally and so did Hilda Drinkwater for archives. Reta reported on the church’s Outreach, Soups On Program, and volunteers were made known for soups and goodies. She is still receiving Campbells labels and used stamps which are sent away to help with Christian work elsewhere. So thank you to all who save these and get them to Reta.

We paused for refreshments and Fellowship – then resumed to attend to the rest of the meeting. All officers will stay on in their respective offices. A reminder that we need crafts and baking for the Inter-Church Bazaar on Nov. 22 in the Zion United Church Hall, from noon to 2 pm.

We will not be purchasing 2015 calendars this year. We need some ideas for our Annual Friendship Tea in February. We will be making a donation, personal choice as to the amount, to help support the National U.C.W.’s work. A gentle reminder to wear our UCW pins for meetings and church.

Next meeting is Nov. 4 at 2 pm. If any ladies are interested in our work, you are most welcome to come as a visitor or join us. There are no dues. We closed with prayer.

Phyllis Gray
