Annual Gathering Announcement!

For those of you who attended the Annual Gathering last June and witnessed the artistic talent of our keynote speaker, Stephanie Bell Burke, you will be pleased to know that the painting she completed will be formally dedicated to Lenoir-Rhyne University on Wednesday, April 11. This will take place during the regular chapel service at 10:00 A.M. which is held in Grace Chapel. The Reverend Adrienne Martin, pastor at Sardis, Newton, will deliver the message. The NC Women of the ELCA are invited to attend this service and dedication. We hope to have a good representation attend!
