August 2017
Greetings to the Women of the Northwest Conference!
It is almost fall! Time to kick off the Women's Ministry season!
From the President:
In my new role as president, I've done a lot of looking through stacks and files to learn what has been the practice or norm for Women Ministries in our conference. What I have found is a lot of good, basic information, all ready-to-use. It seems appropriate to start there with this newsletter make sure each woman in the conference is aware of what resources are available to you right now, just for the asking. As you regroup at the end of the summer and make plans for fall/winter, I hope you find these resources helpful. Happy planning!
