The Christian Women Connection
(CWC) met Thursday, August 20th.
Marya Fraley wrote the script for
Naomi (June Weindel) and Ruth
(Charlene Gates) who shared
some of their story found in the
Old Testament, and for Priscilla
(Carolyn Coil) who shared some of
her story found in the New Testament. Marya then
asked some pertinent questions for us to answer
about the way they dealt with what happened in
their lives that we can use in ours. We also enjoyed
our fellowship over ice cream sundaes.
Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 17th at
6:30 pm. The program will announced closer to the
date. We also will have as our guest, Nikki Stefanow
from Women’s Network who will receive the items we
have collected (diapers, toiletries, etc. in the box in
the narthex) and will share other ways we can assist
as we share God’s love with others in our community.
We look forward to all women who attend
Northside to be a part of our fellowship for you
see, when you are not present, the fabric looks
different since your thread is not a part of it.
