 At a special meeting of the Presbytery PW Coordinating Team August 24, the resignation of Joan Hacket was accepted and Susan McNaught elected as Moderator to complete the term. (February, 2025)


Obviously, this leaves some empty chairs like Assistant Moderator and Search. At this point, we are searching for women to join the presbytery CT and fill these seats. If you know a woman who is ready, willing, and able to fill a position, please let one of us know. Our next meeting is scheduled for 10:00 AM Thursday November 3 at Beth El.

A very big THANK YOU to churches who are continuing to send in their remittances regularly.

How is your PW planning to promote the Thank Offering this year? Recipients are listed in the current Horizon magazine. Check them out!

It is harvest time! Others will know we are Christians by the fruit of the Spirit — love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

                  
You are welcome here. You are safe to sing or laugh or shed a tear.
