Sun, Jan 12 – We celebrated United Methodist Women’s Sunday and installed the 2020 Leadership Team. The women served as ushers, readers, greeters, welcomed guests, called for and offered prayers, and read the scriptures. President, SUSAN BRINER, presented a sermon on “Forgiveness,” recalling a true story from the holocaust about one woman’s journey to forgiveness.
Sat., Jan 26 – Nine of our elected leaders attended Leadership Development Day at First UMC, Glendale, to learn more about the leadership roles that they will be responsible for. Officers plus the circle leaders received resource information, tips and how-to’s from their equivalent officers at the District level and had a great time fellowshipping with leaders from the churches in the West District.
All ladies of Lakeview are invited to come and bring a friend! Wear your best “tea party” outfit (hat, gloves and feather boa optional!), enjoy fellowship and sample finger sandwiches, scones with lemon curd and clotted cream and dainty desserts. Tickets must be purchased no later than March 22 and will be available from members of the Women’s Leadership Team in Smoot Hall between services, at TNT and Amazing Grays.
