United in Sprit – Zion hosts Apr. 25 Soups On due to Art Show

The United Church Women discuss their Bean Supper, plan for a upcoming Soups On.

Seven ladies answered the Roll Call at our Apr. 8 meeting of Zion’s United Church Women. President Reta Robertson opened the meeting with a warm welcome for everyone.

She lead the devotional with a Lenten prayer and a hymn. The scripture reading was Romans 8:6-11 with a Lenten theme. Be in the spirit of Christ – His spirit dwells in us. Remember the cross, it’s pain, and remember the joy of the Resurrection as he overcame death. We have our hope in Him. Reta closed with a Lenten prayer.

Because our minister is away June 1, the UCW will lead the service that Sunday.

We evaluated the Bean Supper and talked about some improvements to make.

The correspondence was dealt with next. There were many items. One was a reminder of the B.C. Conference UCW in Abbotsford May 7-9. We received a news magazine of the work of WICC, a UCW Mission and Service update, news from 1st United Community Ministry Society about their work and three other pieces and “thank yous”.

Our treasurer Colleen Mireau handed out a written report and it was voted on. Joyce gave the Sunshine report in the absence of Dorothy Pears. Several cards were sent out. Other reports – Publicity, Archives and Outreach. were given verbally for information. We continue to receive used stamps and Campbells labels for Christian work elsewhere so a big thank you to those who continue to save them for this work. Also it is to be noted that the United Church will be hosting Soups On in our church hall Apr. 25 due to the Art Show at St. Albans Hall (Apr. 25-29). Plans were made for this.

Refreshments were then enjoyed before we went on to New Business. Cost cutting ideas were discussed next.

Our next meeting will be held May 6 in our church hall and the devotional and refreshments were planned for. We closed with the United Church Women’s Prayer. If anyone is interested in our work, they would be most welcome to come as a visitor or to join us. There are no dues.
