Presbyterian Woman of WNY Moderator's Letter 2017
Published Friday, June 23, 2017

Dear Women of the Presbytery,

During the Spring Gathering in Springville, we celebrated the gifts of those dedicated women

who have served on our Presbytery-wide Coordinating Team. Eight women were dismissed with

thanks, for each has shared their special talents with us and we miss every one of them. Sadly,

Patricia Bauer, cluster leader for North, succumbed to cancer. Her family and her friend Frances

remain in our prayers.

Then we welcomed four new members to our board. Each brings with them their special

interests and unique talents. YES!

But we still have vacancies on our Coordinating Team. We

meet monthly, to plan and coordinate activities and mission outreach for Presbyterian Women in

WNY. Your talents would be gratefully accepted. Please consider joining us.

The 2017-2018 Horizons Bible study is Cloud of Witnesses: The Community of Christ in Hebrews,

by Melissa Bane Sevier. When you participate in this study, you will discover the many “Cloud of

Witnesses” that have shaped our communities within the church and in our lives.

We are offering “Workshops for Leaders” to help you prepare for presenting the 2017-2018 Bible

study, led by three members of our Coordinating Team at three different locations:

Sunday, August 6

2-4 pm

Hamburg Presbyterian with Nancy Bassett 648-0581

Sunday, August 13

2-4 pm

Tonawanda First with Marilyn Koszarek 694-2769

Sunday, August 20

2-4 pm

University Presbyterian with Gladys Gifford 836-2825

Copies of the Bible study will be available for purchase at the workshops. Feel free to call Joyce

Bailey or the workshop leader with any questions you have. Please RSVP by calling the workshop

leader at least one week prior to your preferred date, so that she may prepare enough materials for

the session. If no answer, please leave a message and she will return your call.

Save the date: Our Fall Gathering will be October 14, 2017, at First Presbyterian Church,

Tonawanda. Watch for more information!

The Board and I are committed to making this a year of exciting Gatherings and getting to know the

women’s groups in all the churches in Western New York. We appreciate the ministry of the various

women’s groups and stand ready to share resources to help enrich and enliven your efforts within

the communities served by your congregations.

We hope you are having a good summer and look forward to seeing you in August and October.

Blessings to all,

Joyce Bailey, Moderator, 662-738
