I cannot believe that Christmas is around the corner! I hope I am not the only one who has done very little to prepare for it. I did buy a wreath for the front door, and it looks very festive, but much more has to be done!
Save the Date for our Spring Gathering
Our Spring Gathering is definitely on for April 21st, 2018. Dottie Scott is handling the planning of the event. There will be guest speakers, bible studies, and of course food. Mark your calendars, and plan to attend.
Join us for a January Luncheon
We will again revisit meeting times after the first of the year, i.e., whether to make it earlier in the day or not. A monthly luncheon date was suggested, and approved. Our first luncheon will be held on Monday January 22nd. This will satisfy our social instincts very nicely in the middle of winter.
December 15th — WELCA Christmas Meeting and Dinner Party at 6:00 PM
Judy Grigsby will cater the dinner. Please bring some of your treasured ornaments for our table centerpieces. We and our prayer sisters will exchange gifts, and please keep the monetary value to $10.00. We’ll assemble our gift baskets and enjoy music and song, and much, much laughter. Please remember to bring in your Thank Offerings at this time.

Things to Ponder
There is a need for those of you women with bookkeeping or accounting backgrounds (you know who you are!) to step up and donate some time to Grace. Our Finance and Counting Committees are in need of help. Neither opportunity requires much time, and previous experience is lovely but not demanded. If you are interested or know someone who might be, please let me know.
