United in Spirt – 40th year of Inter-Church Bazaar

The monthly column of news from Zion's United Church Women.

Nine ladies met in Zion United Church Hall for our UCW monthly meeting on Nov. 4.

President Reta Robertson welcomed everyone and thanked them for their dedication.

Phyllis Gray led the devotional taken from the booklet Beside Still Waters by Betty Radford Turcott. The theme was Trust in God. The scripture was Proverbs 3:1-6. Sometimes we worry needlessly about tomorrow or about things that never happen. Trust in God to get you through difficult times.

Ideas were brought forth for our annual Friendship Tea in February. We decided Feb. 10 would be the day for that. Watch for a reminder in The Journal’s Coming Events column. Bulletin board pictures were discussed. The big item was the planning meeting of the annual Inter-Church Bazaar’s 40th year. Watch for posters and a reminder in Coming Events. The date is Nov. 22 from 11:30-1:30 in Zion United Church Hall.

There were only two pieces of correspondence – one from Naramata on the ongoing labour dispute and the other was news from Carmen Salacsadan asking for prayers for the bible study groups she leads in the Philippines.

Reports were given from Treasurer Colleen Mierau, Sunshine’s Dorothy Pears, Publicity’s Phyllis Gray, Archives’ Hilda Drinkwater and from Reta Robertson for Outreach. She has received some Campbell labels and a few stamps. Thanks to all who save these and give them to her. She sends them elsewhere to help with Christian work. She reported on the latest activities to do with Soups On and it will be Zion United Church’s turn to host this on Dec. 26.

We will hold our Family Christmas Party on Dec. 12 at 5:30 pm. We then closed with the UCW Prayer after setting the next meeting for Jan. 6 at 2 pm. Joyce Freeman will do the Devotional.

If anyone is interested in our work and would care to come as a visitor or to join us, they would be most welcome.

At this time, we wish everyone a Joyous Christmas and Happy and Healthy 2015. See you at the bazaar!

Phyllis Gray
