|Letter From The PresidentTo My Sisters in Christ:
We are looking forward to an exciting year for ABW of New Jersey. We have begun our planning for our conference at Harvey Cedars on May 28, 29, & 30, 2014. Plan to be there. We will have Bonnie Sestito, coordinator of Mission with Women and Girls, who will be giving a workshop about girls and young women in your churches and preparing them for the future, forming groups. She will be leading a girls bible study on Saturday, May 30, 2014.
We are planning a program for the girls on Saturday. Please have them come Friday evening and stay Saturday. They may also come Thursday and join the women on Friday and stay till Saturday. Plan to sponsor a girl from you church grades 7-12th grade.
There will be an Intergenerational retreat at the Greenlake Conference Center. Also the girls will have a work week in New Orleans in August. In September 2014, the women will have a conference on a cruise. Yes a cruise. What fun! Vacation and a conference. Go to the National ABW website for details.
The theme for this year is “A Time to Serve”
We would also like to celebrate the women of the churches of NJ and the mission work they participate in their local churches. Come celebrate at our annual conference.
Please send me the mission work your women do at firstname.lastname@example.org . Include the names of the women, your church name, and describe the mission work.
If you would like me or another officer to visit you women’s group or church, please let us know.
