Spring Gathering 2018

GRAND CANYON PRESBYTERY PWP SPRING GATHERING

 

Nine members of Desert Palms PW attended the PWP Spring Gathering on Saturday, April 28, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Orangewood Presbyterian Church. 

 

Unfortunately Carol Main was ill at the last minute and could not attend. We worshiped, sang, and voted in new PWP leadership.  We also attended very interesting workshops to learn about mission work and trips to Indonesia and Honduras, as well as education on the "Women Leaders of the Reformation" and Gail Gibson's book and work on Joshua's Quilt.

 

Nancy Thomas was our keynote speaker providing all with a great overview of the Global Exchange Mission

Trip to Indonesia.  We also learned a great deal about recipients of the 2018 Birthday Offering which included:

 

1.  Cottage Village, a Tiny-house Community for Low-income Residents in Cottage Grove, Oregon

2.  Village of Grace Center for Physical and Spiritual Health in Tegucigalpa, Honduras

3.  The Dwelling Place in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota
