Sacramento Women's Club Launches

The Women's Fellowship Club got off to a great start with 26 of the ladies joining in on the inaugural meeting. Held at the upscale Regency Sierra Retirement Village, the women enjoyed an animated meeting coordinated by Jackie Horchak. Joe Horchak, pastor of Sacramento, welcomed the women and thanked them for their enthusiasm and support for the club. He explained that the primary focus of the club would be to provide the environment for true Christian fellowship for the ladies of the congregation. He expressed that he believed that the club was a wonderful opportunity for each of the ladies to make her individual contribution to the whole club, as well as the congregation, over the months and years ahead. The formal meeting got started with an icebreaker speech presented by Adrienne Hostetter. This was followed by a lively discussion on the Proverbs 31 woman, as outlined in the Bible and portrayed in the book Women of the Bible, used as a resource for the club. The meeting was rounded out by having the women work together in groups on specific areas of etiquette, which all agreed has become somewhat of a lost tradition. The ladies were provided hypothetical situations and then discussed what might be the appropriate ways to handle them. Each group had a spokesperson who shared the ideas with the other groups. Bev Butler volunteered to compile each set of ideas each month and make them available to all of the ladies to keep for later reference. Once the meeting adjourned, it was almost like trying to leave after the Last Great Day—nobody wanted to go. Eventually they did amid a buzz of anticipation for the next club meeting set for Feb. 11.
