Greetings on this new month of May! Our CWC State convention was just this past Friday and Saturday, April 29th and 30th! We who were present in Grand Rapids experienced another outstanding convention!! Rev. Dr. Bonita Laudeman and Rev. Ellsworth Jackson both were wonderful as they shared with us during the weekend. We were all really blessed!! The offering for Children of Promise received Friday evening totaled $1,075.00. A total of $784.50 was received from the silent auction of the theme baskets! Thank you all for your generous giving!
The installation of your new president, Connie Mashue, and the other state officers took place at the State CWC Convention this past weekend! Connie has been a lifelong member of the Floyd Church of God in Midland. She has been very active in the WCG/CWC of the Floyd church and has held most every position there. She is a mother, grandmother, and great grandmother and a past youth leader with her husband Don. She teaches a teenage Sunday School Class, plays the church organ, and traveled to Nebraska on a work mission trip in 2015. She has retired from a family owned printing business. Connie is very devoted in her desire to serve the Lord and is a loving cheerful worker.
My hope is that you will transfer to Connie, the same love and support that you have given me for the last six years! I have known Connie personally for quite a few years and know she'll be a great and wonderful president!
May I say, at this time, that I have thoroughly enjoyed being your president! The love, prayers, and encouragement, also along with the lasting friendships have been overwhelming and much appreciated! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
I pray that you each will continue to love and serve the Lord, and continue to be the great Christian Women Connection group in Michigan that you are!
My love, Ann Hawkins, President
Michigan Christian Women Connection
