United Women in Faith welcomes all Trinity women and friends to the Fall Luncheon on Tuesday, October 11, at 11:30 in Moor Hall! Our focus will be on bringing joy and friendship back into our lives after the pandemic. We are thrilled that our speaker will be Judy Micale LLC, a professionally credentialed life coach, corporate trainer, and motivational speaker. She will speak on “compassion fatigue” and how to find joy in each day. Please come and be part of a new pathway to joy with renewed and new friendships and a delicious lunch. Reservations for lunch must be made by Thursday, October 6. Call the church office at 850-222-1120 to register. The cost for lunch is $8, payable at the door.
As seasonal changes happen in Tallahassee, changes are also occurring with the United Women in Faith at Trinity. Our new name addresses the different needs and life stages of women and welcomes women of other faith traditions to participate with us! As in the past, our focus continues to be nurturing women’s bodies, minds, and spirits. Through love for each other and faith in God, we continue to put our faith in action by supporting women, youth, and children, locally and globally. We are grateful for the leadership of past president, Becky Lachance, as she navigated our group successfully and with youthful passion through the difficult years of the pandemic. Pecan sales were successful in spite of unexpected delivery difficulties. She and past secretary, Nancy Lachance, led the hard work of overseeing the project with the help of other members. Through the many orders from the congregation, the profit from the sales enabled the annual budget to be met.
Sandy Frazier, incoming president, convened the executive board meeting on August 30. Barbara Ware was elected secretary. It was confirmed that during this coming year, we will have three unit meetings. They will be held October 11, February 14, and May 9.
Circle meetings are starting again. If you would like to be part of a smaller group, all circles welcome new members. Information on the circles will be available at the unit meeting. We look forward to welcoming everyone October 11!
