A Message from the Zone President Billie Lelle

Dear Sisters (and maybe a brother or two) in Christ,

Recently I was talking with a friend about my "to do" list. I mentioned that if I write it down, I become committed to doing the tasks I have listed. It helps me plan my day.  My "Brother in Christ" looked at me and began talking about God's "to do" list reminding me that from of old, the Prophets (by God's inspiration) revealed God's list (plan) and His commitment to fulfill them. What joy there is in knowing that all of God's plans and promises are fulfilled in Christ Jesus.  "Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power." Hebrews 1:1-3  (ESV)

2019 will be filled with items and opportunities to check off our "to do" lists as we go about our work as Women (and Men) in Mission. What peace is ours in knowing that God, Who in love sent His Son to be our Savior, now continues to use us in His plans. As we make our lists, let us pray that "our will" will be to do "His will" as we reach out to others with the Good News of Jesus Christ, the Light who came to dispel all darkness.

In His Faithful love,
Billie

A Message from the Zone Counselor
Rev. Kevin Guynn
 
Greeting in the Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior,

As I begin my second term as the Northeast Zone Pastoral Counselor, I just want to take a moment to recognize all the hard work, the amount of great fellowship and intense commitment to serving others which I have observed in the past.

I can honestly say that regardless of the type of event I am attending, when the event is over and I get in the car to go home, I realize just how much the ladies of the Northeast Zone have lifted my spirit. I leave these events nourished (often with great homemade food or deserts) but more importantly spiritually nourished.

If you haven't come to a Zone event, please prayerfully consider joining the ladies as they gather together as the body of Christ. I am confident that if you do this, you too will be uplifted by these ladies who are strong in their faith, fun to be around and willing to be silly enough to enjoy one another's presence.  My prayer is that God guide you to join these wonderful ladies as they serve the Lord wherever and how ever He has need.

In His Service
Rev. Dr. Kevin L Guynn
LWML Northeast Zone Pastoral Counselor

Recent Events

2018 Fall Retreat
"Hats Off To Jesus" was held on Saturday, September 22 at the YMCA in Perry.  It was the zone's 26th retreat.  49 women and 1 pastoral counselor came to the retreat which had as its theme verse: " I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some, I do it for the sake of the Gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings." 1 Corinthians 9:22b-23. Children's hats were brought to the retreat (along with $143 cash donations) to be sent to Building Hope in the City.  $531.39 was collected for LWML Ohio District mites. TO GOD BE THE GLORY. Program events included devotions and Bible Study led by Pastor Kevin Guynn, skits by the "GLAD HATTERS" (we wear many hats in our service to the Lord), crafts (fall hat decoration or prayer box) or book review or free time were available options, singing and a variety of getting to know each other games (cross the line, four corners and the *Name Game).  All left the event with a renewed desire to wear hats of service to our Lord. Pictures of the event can be found under the Zone Picture tab.

2018 Spring Rally
The 2018 Spring Rally was held on April 7 at Peace Lutheran Church in Chardon. 36 women and 3 men answered roll call. Our theme "Sharing the love Christ" was based on 1 Peter 3:15 - " But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect". Our meeting included opening devotions, ingathering for H.A.R.P. (Helping Appalachian Rural People), reports and election of officers. Kinney deHamel shared her story as she presented "I Love to Tell the Story".  Officers, Billie Lelle (president), Robin Bartley (treasurer) and Zone Counselor, Rev. Kevin Guynn were installed by Pastor Don Beaumont.  A wonderful meal was enjoyed by all.  Pictures of the event are located under the Zone Picture tab.
