MESSAGE FROM YOUR FALL GATHERING CO-CHAIRS
Did you spend time at church camp when you were
young? Do you remember camp songs and crafts?
Join the Florida-Bahamas Women of the ELCA at
our 2023 Fall Gathering where we will celebrate
Holy Ground and discover how God still speaks to us.
Our gathering will be in a NEW LOCATION - The
Warren Willis United Methodist Conference Center
located at 4991 Picciola Road, Fruitland Park.
You'll see that this retreat center has beautiful grounds and great spaces for us.
Worship will be led by Trixie Richter and Bible Study will be led by Michelle Collins! It's going to be a wonderful time of fellowship, worship, learning, singing, and even eating s'mores! Mark your calendars now and plan to join us.

Grant Opportunities: Share the Spirit & Let Your Light Shine
Did you know that the Florida-Bahamas Synodical Women's Organization has programs available to help defray the cost of attending the Fall Gathering? We know it’s not always easy being you. We don’t want you to choose between paying for prescriptions, groceries, or daycare and being in fellowship and worship with your sisters in Christ.
If you are are interested in attending the Fall Gathering and resources are a concern, we encourage you to first reach out to your congregational unit to determine what, if any, local funds may be available. We then invite you to complete the Share the Spirit or the Let Your Light Shine (for youth grades 6-12) application and submit it with your Fall Gathering Registration Form. Funds are limited and are administered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Grants are not announced publicly.
Interested in making a contribution? The success of the Share the Spirit and Let Your Light Shine programs is the direct result of generous contributions from individuals and church units. If you are interested in making a contribution, please mail your donation to:
