Florida UCC WomenPresident’s Message 2017

We have begun a new year for the Florida United Church of Christ Women. We began our year with an outstanding Annual Conference May 5-7, 2017, at Chateau Elan in Sebring, Florida. It was a wonderful experience, and the fellowship was outstanding. The location was a gorgeous hotel, complete with delicious food and commendable hospitality. If you were not there, you missed out. Please plan to be with us next year.

Our Laywoman of the Year for 2017 is Grace Lipman from First Congregational Church of Lake Worth. Congratulations!!!!

The 2017- 2018 Reading for Renewal List is here! Our Mission Study topic this year is the Florida Seminole Indians.

Your officers for this year are as follows:

Next on our agenda is the Southern Regional Conference, which this year is scheduled for October 20-22 at Mo Ranch in Hunt, Texas. Unfortunately, this year the Florida Women will not be taking a bus. It would mean a total of four days on the road, two nights each way, plus the three days at the conference. However, we are encouraging all who are able to attend. Registration is online and is open to all women who are members of a United Church of Christ church.

Following is our schedule of regional meetings.

January 20, 2018: Southwest and St. Johns

January 27, 2018: Gold Coast

February 3, 2018: Central West

If you need more information, please contact either myself or your regional representative.

Please continue to access the website, because we will be updating it with pertinent information. We sincerely appreciate each and every one of you and look forward to all the fellowship moments to come.
