Winlock Women Cultivate Community Relationships

Women’s ministry in Winlock, Wash., recently hosted a Tea and Praise luncheon for the surrounding community.

Sue Patzer, North Pacific Union Conference women’s ministries director, provided the keynote address. Three students from Lewis County Adventist School shared their musical talents.

"All stories begin with 'once upon a time,'" says Patzer. "No matter what happens in the chapters that follow, the life story of a Christian ends with 'and they lived happily ever after.' This is not only our hope, it is our blessed assurance."

Guests included ladies from other church denominations, as well as other local Adventist churches. Guests particularly liked Patzer’s talk where she showed family photos.

The community outreach activity for women generated many positive comments and allowed for new friendships to be cultivated.
