50th Annual Secretaries Gathering - Craigville
Dear Friends, Over the past 50 years, Church Secretaries (by any title) have gathered annually to share insights and offer help with this demanding calling. At this year’s gathering we will be celebrating 50 years of Choosing JOY—Jesus, Others and Yourself.
We will indulge in some of our favorite activities:
Introductions, putting names to the faces old and new
A Yankee Swap
Networking; sharing ideas and answering questions
Free time; go to the beach, shopping or what ever
Closing Worship with communion.
In addition, we will have three sessions addressing each element of JOY.
J—Jesus will focus on walking by faith.
O-Others will be learning how we can best serve the aged in our congregations and illness that come with age. Finally,
Y-Yourself will have a variety of offerings to so you can best pick that topic you wish to attend.
We will continue our outreach as we bring donated items to help the community. What to donate will be included in your confirmation letter. The monetary collection at our closing worship will go to a charity chosen by the group. We hope you can join us for an informative and fun-filled time as we gather the tools we need to effectively manage our time and our lives.
