May 1st saw the celebration of Friendship Day of the Church Women United. Our church was one of the twelve represented at this service and luncheon. The luncheon was very well organized and delicious. The worship promised to be a good one, but due to time constraints, Joan, Pastor Susan and I could not stay for the whole service. We will use the bulletin we received for our own Friendship Worship at our Jun 14th meeting.
We had a small gathering on May 17th. According to our plans, we used our study book for a discussion about hardships and how to find God in those times. It proved to be a very worthwhile discussion. It is always nice to see new faces at our gatherings. Once again, I extend the invitation to all the women of the church, young and old and everything in between, to attend our meetings.
Prayer shawls are still being made albeit at a slower tempo than when we started. If you cannot attend the meetings at 9:30 a.m. the second Wednesday of each month but want to contribute in one way or the other, please speak to me for details. We have so many folks on our prayer list who would truly benefit from receiving a prayer shawl. I can certainly provide some guidance for those of you who may want to knit or crochet a shawl for the first time.
