Celebrating International Women’s Month

Dear Ones,

Blessings to you, as we celebrate International Women’s Month!

Happy Women's Day

#InternationalWomensDay #HerStory #WomensHistoryMonth

Here are a few quotes that I’d like to share with you. I’d love for you to share yours on our facebook page:

“Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women.”  -Maya Angelou

Jesus protected women.
Empowered women.
Honored women publicly.
Released the voice of women.
Confided in women.
Was funded by women.
Celebrated women by name.
Learned from women.
Respected women.
And spoke of women as examples to follow.
Our turn.
Karyn L. Wiseman

Our NCNCUCC conference is holding a special Business Meeting, as voted upon during last year’s Annual Meeting, this  Saturday, March 13th, from 10 am – 1 pm.

Representation is critical since we’re determining our conference budget and discerning the future of Camp Cazadero.

The decision has critical implications for:

  • our conference staff, and their ability to support local churches like ours.
  • the future of the camping program at Camp Caz

I am planning to attend, and ideally, we would have 3 member delegates, including me, from Skyline.

I have been working with the conference council, on discernment for the camp, based on my role with the national CB&LF, and regional mission interpreters who have shared their experiences with maintaining their camping program throughout the UCC.

Let me know if you’re interested and available to attend, if you’d like to discuss, or if you have suggestions about other members who’d be ideal for this discussion.
