Carolinas District Joy Event

"Celebrating and Moving Forward"

March 3, 2018

St. John's Lutheran Church, 2126 St. John's Church Road, Conover, NC


Theme Verse: 1 Samuel 7:12 "Thus far the Lord has helped us."

Keynote Speaker: Mr. David Beringer, Principal - Concordia Christian Day School


Registration Cost: $15 (includes lunch)

The LWML societies of the Catawba Valley Zone heartily invite you to join us for the 2018 Joy Event! Come early for registration and fellowship which begins at 8:30 a.m. Our District Heart to Heart Sisters and District YWR will be on hand to meet with you; be sure to take time to speak with them! The Joy Event will begin at 9:30 a.m. with a Matins Service of joyful praise. Moving forward into the morning, we will consider the nature of celebrations and how they fit into God’s plan for our lives. 


We are excited to have Mr. David Beringer as our keynote speaker for the day. Mr. Beringer who is currently principal of Concordia Christian Day School in Conover, NC, has served in Christian education for 38 years. He has spoken to District LWML gatherings in Wisconsin and has taken high school groups to Ghana on three mission occasions. "Life Through the Rear View Mirror" … we are in for a treat! 

After a delicious lunch, every one will take part in two small-group sessions: one will be a discussion session in a comfortable conference room setting; the other will be a project activity session relating to a mission or service project. We ask that each of you choose three service projects that are of interest to you. We will do our best to see that you are placed in a group of your choice. Our day will end at 3:00 p.m. 


The Joy Event registration form appears at the top of this notice and will be in the next issue of the Carolinas Cross Connection. The cost for this event is $15.00 which includes a delicious hearty luncheon. Please send your completed registration form and check to Shelbie Baker as soon as possible. 


Gifts from the Heart will aid the Catawba County Pregnancy Care Center in Hickory. The center is always in need of large size (5 and 6) disposable diapers. Monetary donations are always in fashion and very much appreciated. Please make checks out to Carolinas District LWML. More information on needs of the Center will follow in a reminder correspondence. 


"Move Forward" and make your reservations now; I look forward to seeing each of you! 

Mary Ann Upton, Catawba Valley Zone President


PS ... Please bring medicine bottles with labels in tact (mark out personal info) for a project.
