Ladies of all ages are invited to our annual Christmas Tea being held this year on Saturday, December 14th, at 10:00 a.m., at the home of Donna Laney's. Please RSVP the church office at 503-873-6620 by December 12thh and indicate if you'll be carpooling from the church parking lot.
CWF had our Bazaar wrap-up meeting and were pleased to have made $2,217.46. Our booth space rental made $491.50; Cookies-by-the-Pound, $739; lunches, $949.20; and Grab Bag items, $609.61. After expenses, we did very well.
Our gift wrapping ladies would like me to encourage you to continue to bring donations for the Grab Bag booth as you know they are a great hit. They ran out of items this year and could have sold many more if they had them ... so it is a good time to clean out cabinets and closets, and as you put away your Christmas items, please consider donating what you no longer need or want to the Grab Bag.
I have also been asked what CWF does with their money. Last year we paid to have the eight graduation quilts made, furnished the new Cry Room in the back of the church, furnished the new Toddler Nursery and made a matching contribution to the Building Remodel Fund. We also have women's events, like our Christmas Ladies Tea on December 14th.
I have always thought that everyone knew what CWF is, but I was asked this month what the purpose of our group is so would like to share that with you as well.
Christian Women's Fellowship includes all the women of the church who wish to participate. Our purpose, as written by Women's Ministries, is "to provide opportunities for spiritual growth, enrichment, education and creative ministries to enable women to develop a sense of personal responsibility for the whole mission of the Church of Jesus Christ." So we encourage all women to participate in each of our events and share our love of Jesus Christ with one another.
We look forward to seeing you at the Women's Christmas Tea on December 14th.
