Christian Women meet in October; next meet Tuesday

The Warren Christian Women’s October “Autumn” luncheon featured various baskets to be raffled. Prayer favors were little baskets, filled with tiny pumpkin candies, with the name of a guest attached for whom to pray. The resource table displayed a basket of small pumpkins surrounded by a listing of Bible studies available.

Chairperson Birdie Crandall read a note of explanation on Village Missions and then introduced the speaker Pastor James Bucci of Summerville. He said: “Village Missions has existed for 70 years and is growing.” There is a great need for prayer and hiring more missionaries to service rural America. They have an Ark and Creation Museum in Tennessee.

Village Missions stand on and preach what is in the Bible. They teach classes to become a missionary with a Bible College and internships. A video was shown by Pastor James and Mary Bucci, which showed the many projects of Village Missions.

The various raffled baskets were handed out with the funds going to support the Village Missions endeavor.

Jamie Keith of Jamestown, N.Y., sang “Let Me Call You Sweetheart”, “In The Garden”, and “What A Friend We Have In Jesus.” He was accompanied on the piano by Rosemarie Keefe of Jamestown, N.Y., who also provided music before the luncheon. Pastor Bucci closed the luncheon in prayer.

The Warren Christian Women will meet for a “Patriotic” luncheon at noon on Tuesday, Nov. 14, at the Allegheny Community Center, 42 Clark Street, Warren. The cost is $9 inclusive.

The speaker will be Ed Burris of the Warren County Veterans Affairs. All women and men are invited to this Christian non-denominational gathering. A complimentary nursery is available.
