Our church’s Annual Congregational Meeting will be held the afternoon of Sunday, January 28, 2018.
Our regular Worship Service will be followed by a potluck luncheon in the Church Hall followed by the Annual Congregational Meeting when the luncheon is over and our Pastoral Supervisor arrives from Kamloops.
This annual meeting serves to review all aspects of our church operation from the 2017 year, and so everyone is encouraged to plan to attend including bringing at least one potluck luncheon item per couple or single.
See you there!
Sadly, the last meeting of the United Church Women’s group of Ashcroft was held on November 7, 2017. Declining membership and advancing age finally reduced the number of members to the point where the group could not continue to do what its members wanted and needed to do to remain active. Thus, our UCW has now formally disbanded.
As reported in Phyllis Gray’s last report in The Journal published November 16th, “We have really appreciated all the support given to us these past many years from the community for our more than 70 years of bean suppers, bazaars, teas, and other events which could not have happened without your wonderful support. Thank you.”
Gone but not forgotten …
Here is a link to this last report from The Journal:
Two long-time outreach projects run by the United Church Women’s group will terminate as of December 31, 2017 due to the UCW’s group disbanding.
Thus, as of the end of 2017, Zion United Church will no longer collect Campbell’s product labels or used international postage stamps. If you are savings any of these items for the church, please ensure that they are received by the church before the end of this year.
Both of these programs have been offered by the UCW since May 1987, so they operated successfully for over 30 years. We thank all past donors for your continuing support over all these years!
