Ladies' Auxiliary Group is Organizing

For several years, various ladies from around the state have discussed the possibility of forming a Ladies' Auxiliary group to promote and support the activities here at CFBC. We are happy to announce that our first congregational chapter is now a reality and, in fact, has scheduled their first fundraising event.

The proposed Bylaws, which will be discussed and finalized at the Ladies' Retreat in October, describe the organizational structure of the group. Auxiliary Officers and an Executive Board will be selected and serve to coordinate the activities the group will undertake.

In addition to a state-wide organization, the hope is to have a Ladies' Auxiliary chapter in most congregations. Each chapter will ensure that CFBC events are announced and promoted locally, keeping in mind of course that the church's activities have the priority. They will also work within guidelines the state membership will set to have one or more fundraising events at their home congregation. The funds raised will be periodically turned over to the CFBC Board of Directors to be spent on a project of the Auxiliary's choosing.

As was mentioned earlier, the first congregational chapter has already been formed. About a dozen ladies at the Orange Avenue Church of Christ in Eustis have selected a Coordinator (Deb Taylor) and a Co-Coordinator (Chris Beech). They also have planned their first fundraising event: "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?" scheduled for April 27th. A description of this event can be viewed here.

Ladies, please consider forming a Ladies' Auxiliary chapter in your congregation. If you would like more information about its purpose or ideas on events, please call Ron at the camp office (352.357.6316).

The schedule for the summer is as follows:

June 16-22 Bay Area/South Florida Week  ($190; Grade 6 - Age 18)

What is FaithWorks Camp?

Our newest session, FaithWorks Camp, will be a 3-day work camp experience for teens (just completed Grades 5-12) - a wonderful opportunity to learn to LOVE, to SERVE and to REACH OUT to others.

Campers will travel each day to area congregations, where service projects will be completed for deserving families who are not members of the Lord's church. These families will have been selected by the local congregation in an effort to reach out to them and create an opportunity to share the gospel with them.

Work to be accomplished will include projects such as yard work, painting, clean-up and possibly some minor repairs. Each team of campers will be supervised by at least two counselors.

In addition to the regular items campers are required to bring (bedding, towels, etc.), FaithWorks campers should also bring clothing appropriate to work in, such as, closed-toed shoes, work gloves, etc.

 

Plan to be with us this Summer

Whether you can join us for one session or several, make plans now to spend part of your summer at CFBC. You'll have FUN, make FRIENDS, and increase your FAITH.
