Epiphany’s WELCA was represented at both the “Magi Meeting” at the All Saints Lutheran Church in March, and in October at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Lilburn, Georgia. In April we hosted a meeting with other WELCA groups that was officiated by Pastor Mary Armstrong- Riener at Epiphany. During this meeting we made up cotton diaper bundles that contained several items including clothes, wash cloths, a towel, and soap. These diaper bundles were eventually shipped overseas by Lutheran World Relief. In April of 2017, Epiphany’s WELCA will host another event similar to this one.
Our newly elected officers of 2017 are President Linda Machansky, Vice President Miriam Holcomb, Treasurer JoBeth Simmons, and Treasurer Barbara Neiman.
Here at Epiphany we will continue to support our Preschool and Evelyn Brown’s “Back-Pack Buddys” with our monthly contributions. We’ll also continue in November to collect money from our “Thank Box Offerings” and also send out a year-end check to our synod.
Each first Tuesday of the month we will meet at 9:30 AM in rooms 4-6. Pastor David Armstrong-Reiner leads our bible study the first hour as of now and we are focusing on “Luther’s Small Catechism”. Afterward we will continue our meeting that will open and close with the “Prayers of Our Purpose Statement” and the “Missionary Benediction”.
We welcome all interested women to join us in our Christian Fellowship!
Linda Machansky, President
