Bonclarken in the Summer

Many of us made it to Bonclarken for the Women’s Ministries Annual Meeting and were even able to stay over for Family Bible Conference. (I haven’t been able to stay for FBC yet, but I’m trying to make it work out for next year!)

2013 Showcase Table

We did have a nice display at the Showcase on Tuesday afternoon.

Here is a picture of our table, with Ruth Anne Gibson. This was a group effort and I am so glad Ruth Anne and Lil Summerville were able to help put it all together. Lynn Robinson provided the bath salt give-aways.

The Annual Meeting was well attended and covered a lot of good business and encouragement from members of the Board. Some of the business included the fact that there will be some changes in how the money is passed on to Women’s Ministries (Synodical) from the Presbyterial treasurer. New forms should be coming out in the next few weeks.

The big announcement is about next year’s Annual Conference. Next year is the 100th and Nicole McCoy and the committee are already busy making sure it is a great one. Christian speaker and comedienne Ellie Lofaro will be the main speaker, and there is a concert Sunday afternoon with Kathy Troccoli. This promises to be different from past Annual Meetings. With a speaker like Ellie Lofaro and other events including a worship service Sunday night led by Dr. Derek Thomas, we see this as a women’s conference, with a short business meeting Monday afternoon. We are excited about this and hope women from all over the denomination will get excited and make plans to go to

Jubilee Birthday

Bonclarken July 27-28, 2014. If you are on Facebook, there is already a Facebook Event you can join for reminders and updates.

We also heard from Judy Buis, retired missionary and Jubilee Birthday lady, and voted to add Shelia Osborne as the new Birthday lady, joining Nannette Howard.
