Hello out there! Can you hear me? I thought perhaps I could get your attention and ask you to consider a few questions.
Did you know that we send out almost 300 newsletters each month? If you read it, then you are up-to-date on all of our ministries as well as our scheduled monthly program celebrations (which are open to all).
Do you read it but choose not to get involved? Then sadly, you are missing out on some great opportunities. Perhaps you tell yourself “I haven’t got time for this,” or maybe “it doesn’t fit into my schedule.” I know that some of you are still employed, but we do offer at least one program event in the evening. And, if for some reason you choose not to attend a program, that doesn’t mean that you can’t get involved in one or more of our ministries. Perhaps you could order some books to help us bring the joy of reading to children in city schools, or when you shop for groceries, pick up some deodorant for a man or woman or even tooth paste to help fill our health bags. Perhaps you knit or crochet and can make a lap robe. Maybe you could even get your church involved in some of these things. We’d be glad to pick items up if you can’t find a way to bring them into our office.
If you want to see more things offered to meet your needs, call us, send an email, or write a note. We’d be glad to listen and see what could be implemented. Or, you could even come to one (or more) of our board meetings. We meet the 3rd Friday of each month at Christ the Good Shepherd church on Winton Road. You are always welcome.
We put a lot of effort into preparing our newsletter and our monthly programs, but we find that very few of you are now participating. We’d like to do even more in our community, but we can’t do it without you. We are a great organization giving women a chance to join together in Christian fellowship and friendship. So, please think about making an extra effort to rejoin our activities.
