Spring Rallies 2017
The Candace Ladies from Mount Olivet Lutheran Church hosted the DCMarVa Zone Spring Rally on Saturday, April 29. At this gathering we had time to Engage, Encourage, Equip and Enjoy under the theme: “A Time to Celebrate.” Our ingathering gift was to provide toiletries for the Blessing Bags given to the women of N Street Village (in Washington, D.C.). This was very successful ingathering of Blessing Bags (women’s toiletries) that the ladies were able to prepare that day and Rev. Dr. John Johnson blessed during the worship service. The following week, the Candace Ladies delivered three shopping carts of bags.
DCMarVa Zone is so blessed we have received two new churches: Lamb of God Lutheran and Zion Praise Tabernacle Lutheran Mission. At this gathering we received many blessings as Peace Lutheran, King George, VA gave a donation of $1,000 for Mites in memory of a faithful LWML supporter, Helen Nations. The District Representative was Christine Maconachy, VP Christian Life, who provided us with an update on the Mission Goals and the upcoming Christian Life Retreat. The special speaker was Pastor Tim McNutt and his wife, Amy who gave a presentation on their mission trip to Africa.
To assist the DCMarVa Zone delegate with her mission grant choices, each church was asked to bring their selections to the meeting. The choices of the top eight were provided to our delegate and the list was given to each congregation to lift in prayer before the national convention in Albuquerque, NM.
Our Fall Workshop will be Saturday, September 16 at Lutheran Church of Our Savior, Bryans Road under the theme: “Order our steps as we celebrate the goodness of God.”
