Annual Report – June 2019
Our goals are to provide a rich set of opportunities to support women’s engagement in the TUCW community and for women to build deeper relationships, and to nurture feminine spirituality.
This year we have continued the monthly potlucks throughout the year. These are all well attended with a varied group of women attending each time so that the network of women knowing others and being known grows with each gathering. This church year we launched the monthly “Quotable Women” brown-bag-lunch following a Sunday 11:00 AM service. Pat Francek coordinated this offering, identifying a different woman to lead each of the sessions. The leader brought a reading, quotation or art work from a woman and used this to stimulate a conversation. Also launched this year was the new “Women, Spirit and Imagination” six week women’s spirituality series. This was developed by a group of women most of whom also led one of the sessions in the series. It was exceptionally well received and plans for repeating and extending it in the fall are underway. We also ran the Holiday Boutique selling jewelry and scarves. It was lots of work and fun and raised $7,000 for the operating fund.
All women are invited to all TUCWomen activities. We encourage all women to join the TUCWomen mailing list so they will know about what’s happening.
Questions and ideas can always be directed to the co-leaders.
