Fellowship of Christian Women to hold luncheon April 26th

Celebrating 40 Years…1978-2018

By Sharon Hayes

It is time to Rejoice! Remember! And Celebrate! the past 40 years.

Fellowship of Christian Women’s Luncheon began in 1978 and only missed a few meetings due to ice on our highways.

Ladies of our county gather in church fellowship halls on the 4th Thursday of every month for lunch and inspirational speakers.

This month we are suggesting “Casseroles and Veggies” for our meal, and ladies in their 30’s will be treated and do not have to bring food to share around the serving tables.
