Emma Lee Dasher, Melinda Heidt, Cheryl Pannal, Norma Ralph and Dana Lee Smith attended the Southeastern Synod Women of the ELCA convention September 16th – 18th at Guntersville State Park in Alabama. We had a wonderful time experiencing our theme “Renew Your Heart”. We enjoyed attending workshops and engaging with other women from around our synod. Jean Minkin from Trinity Lutheran in Lilburn, GA was elected president and Norma Reed from Nativity Lutheran in Bethlehem, GA was elected vice president. Pat Cunningham from St. Paul’s Lutheran in Savannah, GA was re-elected to serve on the board. Thanks for all of your prayers for a safe and successful meeting!
Here at Zion, WELCA continues to carry on several ongoing projects. Please save your Campbell’s soup labels (any product from Campbell’s company) and your pop tabs. These items can be placed in the small cubby in the entrance of the fellowship hall. We are also collecting empty prescription bottles. There is a collection basket in the entrance of the fellowship hall. We also sponsor wedding showers and baby showers throughout the year. If you would like to donate towards gifts and refreshments for these events, please contact Melinda Heidt at 728-3288.
All women of Zion are members of WELCA. You are invited to take part and get involved in your organization. Please let me know how we can help to get you involved. Bible study meeting times and locations are listed in Zionews.
