Church Women United ♦ The Friendship Luncheon is on May 5 at Westminster Towers and Shores. A $5.00 donation to CWU is requested. The Valiant Woman Award and the Young Woman Award will be presented at the luncheon. Don’t forget to set aside your coins for the Fellowship of the Least Coin. Contact Peggy for tickets and more information or call the church (941-778-0414).
Fellowship of the Least Coin is a global ecumenical women’s prayer movement. Individuals or groups may join by committing to pray for peace, justice and reconciliation among families and communities, and worldwide. Each time a woman prays, she sets aside the least coin of her local currency as a symbol of the prayer. Women’s national groups collect the coins and send them to the central fund c/o World Council of Churches. The prayers offered and the least coins collected support projects for women and children around the world.
Christian Women have participated in this movement since it began in 1956 when a woman in the Philippines, Shanti Solomon, had a vision of women praying for each other across boundaries, setting aside a coin as a symbol of their sincerity. Some Roser women pray and collect pennies daily. They may be collected at circle and Guild meetings and are dedicated as a part of the program at the Church Women United May Friendship luncheon, May 5th. Persons who would like to participate with prayer and coins should leave them so marked by Wednesday at the church office this week so they may be included in the dedication and sent this year.

The Migrant Sewing Circle began 64 years ago. It is estimated that they have created over 3,150 quilts and over 1,100 layettes. They have filled 950 school bags, made bandages and more!
