The program, “Joanna the Woman Who Returned Her Gift,” was given by Kay Oughterson.

There are some women in the Bible who we are very familiar with. However, many women in the Bible are not well-known and we are not familiar with them. Some are barely mentioned. Yet we have much to learn from the “mere mention” ladies.

Our program centered on one of these “mere mention” women – Joanna. Joanna loved and gave to Him in return. The program closed with prayer. Delicious refreshments were served by Pat Overly and Jodi Kirkpatrick.

The Oct. 4 meeting will be held at the church at 2:30 p.m.. Devotions and program will be presented by Samantha Dunham. Refreshments will be provided by Janet Kirkpatrick and Kay Oughterson.
