Women of Hope
50 LADIES FROM OUR LIVING WATERS CONFERENCE motored to Walker on October 3rd to attend the Living Waters Fall Gathering hosted by our Women of Hope. Our day began with Pastor Matt presiding at our worship/communion service. Our board meeting was led by Peg Christensen, Living Waters Conference Coordinator. Our Northeast Women’s Synodical summer gathering will be June 4th, 5th and 6th at Sugar Lake Lodge by Grand Rapids. Start planning now to attend this inspirational and informative event. Let’s try to send a couple scholarship gals this year. Dee Oliver was the special program for the day speaking on “Whose Corner are you Going to Light?” A great presentation - thanks Dee. Special gifts made by Sherren Foss and our crafters were given to all attendees. $369.00 was taken in at the Triennial Market Place. These monies will be collected over the next three years to be divided among those from our Conference who will be attending the Triennial in Phoenix in 2020. And a big thank you to our Men of Hope who served the luncheon and did the clean-up. It was a terrific day.
