Will you hear the call...
Are you up for trying something new? An opportunity to meet new people from across our Mission District while working with a great core group of women and connecting with our Sisters in Christ of the WNALC to share God’s love!
Each year we seek women willing to answer God’s call to serve on our governing board, the Executive Committee. Our Executive Committee consists of four executive officers and four board members who are elected to a three year term and are limited to two consecutive terms, except the treasurer who is not limited to terms served. Pastor Joyce Dix-Weirs serves as Clergy Representative. Won’t you prayerfully consider putting your name on the ballot to run in the election? The election is held during our Fall Gathering. The only requirement is for you to belong to a congregation that is a member of the NALC.
We have a current need to fill an open vacancy and will be voting at the Spring Gathering to meet the Executive Committee current requirements. Please complete a nomination form to be considered. We are praying for you to hear the call.
I know that the big question in your mind is, “what do I have to do? What are my responsibilities?” We hold four board meetings (none during the summer months), schedule and assist with the Spring and Fall gatherings, conduct a Women’s Retreat and support the other Women’s groups in our Mission District as needed.
Don’t miss out on this excellent opportunity! Please prayerfully consider running for a position on the Council. There is a nomination form for you to fill out & return to Jackie Waterson, President. If you have any questions, please ask Jackie or any of our Executive Committee members. We are here to help you!

We left very early and returned in the late of evening of the same day. As most of you have Sunday morning resposibilities, we left the driving to the bus driver we secured for the trip.
