New Year, New Beginnings

The Planning Team is excited about our program for 2011. We have new ministries, new ideas and new directions. We’ll be sharing more about all this in the weeks to come but we hope you will be pleased and will want to be with us in “reaching in, reaching out and reaching up.”

Becky Throgmorton has resigned as WM leader after serving a three-year term. We are grateful to her for her service and love her for her servant heart. Mary Ellen

Evans has stepped in, not so much as WM leader, but more as chair of the Planning Team. It has always been the Planning Team who makes the decisions for WM and this will continue.

Keeping in mind our established purpose for WM, the Team has completely reorganized our special events to include the things that you said you wanted in the survey. We hope you will like and support these events.

WM has always been about more than special events,

however. Our ministries, too, have been scrutinized. We made a few changes to old ministries and added some new ones that we hope will interest you. We will be featuring them in future issues of this newsletter. If you would like to work in that ministry, please contact the person that will be listed in each article.

Our theme for 2011 is “Heart of a Servant.” We hope we can help you to use the gifts you have been given in service to God, his church and his kingdom.


2011 Special Events

The Women’s Ministry Planning Team has an exciting and uplifting year planned for you. We’ll begin with the Appreciation Tea on January 23rd. As usual, we will lift our winter doldrums with An Evening of Chocolate on February 8. April 8-9 we will have our yearly retreat, but it will be something new and

different with “Mugs, Muffins and Merriment”. WoW will be in July as usual. There will be another Mugs & Muffins event in the fall.

We worked hard to encompass many of the things you said on the survey you wanted in our special events. Don’t miss them!

One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.

~Eleanor Roosevelt
