Thank you to all who attended our Monthly meeting on Thursday May15th. A very special "Thank You" to Rev Michelle Grimes and Rev April Beckles of Bridge Street AME Church and to their Pastor and First Lady, the Rev. David and Valerie Cousin for hosting us.
Thank you to our Worship Leader, the Rev Addunola Waterman-French, Pastor of Greater St. Paul AME Church for leading us in a brief presentation on Worship After the presentation and worshipping, we went before the Lord in prayer. We followed as the scriptures instructed us to do, we prayed for one another. We prayer for our families, our children, our seniors, those who are sick, NYAMEWIM (Connectional and District President, and Local Coordinator), our Episcopal leadership, Pastors, Ministers Evangelist and all in authority. We prayed for each other and for you as well.
I am grateful to God for the women who were in attendance. Several ideas and thoughts were shared as to how we can/should move forward. We are hoping to put in place several of these ideas as soon as possible. It was also noted that in order for us to move to the next level will require the presence and support of you my sisters. I am clear that we all cannot make all the meetings, but we are encouraging you to participate as often as you can especially when the meetings are held on your Presiding Elder's district.
As we move forward, please note that we will join with the Ministerial Alliance once again for the Annual Ministerial Alliance picnic in June. In July we will hold our very first BBQ meeting which will be hosted by Salem AME Church. As this is a BBQ, this meeting will take place on FRIDAY, July 25 2015, not on our usual Thursday evening. At this meeting, you may bring your children as they will be able to play on the grounds and be in a safe environment. There will be no meeting in August, and we will resume in September.
Please be prayerful as we as expecting to hold elections on each Presiding Elder's District as a Coordinator is needed on ALL PE Districts. Please share your interest of holding a position of either Coordinator, Ass't Coordinator, Sec. or Treasurer
Be Blessed my sisters and have a wonderful restful night
-Rev. Jacqueline Lynch
