Women’s Christmas Gathering

On December 22, the women of Living Word Church gathered to celebrate Christmas together, focusing on 2 main themes surrounding the coming of Jesus to this earth – gifts & light.

We enjoyed sharing special memories we each have relating to gifts we’ve given and received.  There was joy in exchanging gifts with each other, and excitement as each woman received a special gift – one of our daughter Krista’s handmade necklaces. (You can view & purchase her beautiful jewelry at www.etsy.com/shop/TheShadyWillow. All proceeds go to funding her missionary activities and studies.)  We were also blessed to give to others, as we made special gift baskets for a Christian family from another church in town, who has been going through an unexpected, difficult time.  There was, of course, delicious food, and much fellowship, laughter, and love.

Rhonda spoke, and encouraged discussion on gifts & light.

It's always fun to see what you get in the gift exchange

The Christmas gathering is a yearly highlight for the women of Living Word Church!  In fact, only about half the women could make it this year & some were quite disappointed that they were unable to come.
