United in Spirit – Less people attending, Bean Supper carries on

Monthly news of Ashcroft's Zion United Church Women.

The Zion United Church Women held their April meeting at 2 pm on April 1 with seven members attending. We repeated the U.C.W. Purpose together,

President Reta Robertson welcomed everyone and thanked us for giving of our time for the work of the UCW. Reta lead the devotional in Jacklyn Desrosiers’ absence. She read from the book Quiet Moments For Women by June Bacher. In all things have faith and hope. The scripture was 1st Corinthians 13:7 and also verse 9:10. Love endures all things. She closed with prayer.

The agenda was circulated and approved. The March meeting minutes were approved as circulated.

Old Business was next and we evaluated the Friendship Tea and the Bean Supper. The numbers were down but we wish to thank all those who brought food and attended. Without all of you we could not continue to carry on with the Bean Supper. So thank you again!

Correspondence was dealt with and we had may newsletters and Thank Yous. They came from Action International missionary Carmen, the Centre for Christian Studies, Canadian Bible Society, Naramata Centre and Riding The Waves magazine.

Reports were next and treasurer Colleen Mireau handed out her report. It was accepted Verbal reports were given by Dorothy Pears for Sunshine, Phyllis Gray for Publicity, Hilda Drinkwater for Archives and Reta Robertson for Outreach. Thank you for all who save and turn in the Campbell labels. Please make sure the bar code and the name Campbell is intact. If you slit the label down the back, hopefully it will come off the can in once piece. Thank you to all who save these for us as they help with Christian work elsewhere. Also thank you to those who save used stamps. They also help with Christian work. The United Church will host Soups On in the United Church Hall tomorrow, April 17, from 11 am to 1 pm. The Anglican Church will be hosting the annual Art Show in their Hall at that time.

We then paused for a time of refreshments and fellowship.

New Business was attended to and the U.C.W. Will lead the worship in Zion United Church on June 14. More planning for this will take place at our May meeting. Our next meeting will be May 5 at 2 pm and  Devotional and Refreshment ladies were made known.

We adjourned the meeting and stood to repeat the United Church Women’s prayer together.

If any ladies are interested in our work, come and join us as a visitor – you would be most welcome.

Phyllis Gray
