Monday is another party at the College View Church, what fun we will have. I will put some pictures up the next time I blog but in the mean time I want to let you know Women’s Ministries is alive and well at the College View Seventh Day Adventist Church.
Women in Touch will meet on Monday, May 4 and won’t start again until October. We are ready for a break but we do miss the 350 plus ladies who come to enjoy Spiritual food, laughter, a meal and beautiful decorations. This time our theme is weddings, we will have a devotional, a parade of wedding gowns and a lovely meal.
We are having Chicken Croissant Sandwiches (vegetarian), Fruit Salad, Green Salad and Wedding Cake for dessert. We will get our groceries today and a cooking team will spend most of the day on Monday cooking and praying for this day of outreach and ministry.
If you don’t have Women’s Ministries in your church I would love to help you get one started. Please leave a comment on this blog and I will contact you. Women’s Ministries is vital for a growing church!
Evaporated milk can be replaced by Silk Creamer. I must admit we have not tried replacing the eggs yet, but would like to try tofu or cornstarch to replace the eggs and yet to bind the patties.

My women’s ministries event will be another time. Glacier View Ranch is to get 3 that’s right 3 feet of snow. Thinking of snow makes me think of these great bars. They are vegan and yummy.

Monday evening was our “Party With a Purpose”–Women in Touch. 350 ladies gathered, we visited, enjoyed dinner and worshipped together.
There is about 12 ladies and 1 man who rush to the church kitchen the first Monday morning of the month and start the process of getting ready for our 6:30 PM dinner. I am always amazed at the fun and excitement that’s in the air as we work all day preparing. We washed and cut close to 20 heads of lettuce and added several other items to make taco salad. We made filling for 700 enchiladas, made Spanish rice for the crowd. By the time we rolled all of the enchiladas we were ready for lunch. Our menu for the evening was vegetarian chicken enchiladas, Spanish rice, taco salad and cookies. In the afternoon we finished our food preparation and got every thing ready for our guests.
The decorations were lovely, the decorating crew arrives on Sunday morning and by the time they are finished they have transformed Heartland Hall into a wonderland of beauty.
350 ladies arrived mostly on time and at least 250 were ladies from the community. We hear over and over how much these ladies love our program and they are always sad when May comes because we won’t get together again until October.
Buffy Halverson was our special speaker, Buffy spoke on Prayer. She made prayer sound like a fun, exciting thing to do. She also gave us a renewed idea of how important it is to keep communication going with God.
Here is your LOL (laugh out loud) for today, I thought I was doing well getting some pictures for you to see. Do you notice one picture that does not seem to go with the rest? I don’t know how to delete it, so you will just have to enjoy the picture of Jadon Gibson’s Lego creation. From the small pictures I was clicking on I thought it was a table decoration–LOL.
