Celebrating something Extraordinary...

What a great night we had with the progressive dinner.  Such a wonderful turnout and a great feeling of closeness.  What better way to get to know more sisters in the ward!  After each course everyone moved to a different table and had a new person to talk to.  Gabby did a fantastic job making a wonderful dinner.  She out did herself and we are very thankful for the sharing of her talent.  Hope you all have good memories of the evening. 
Thank you all for participating in this special night.

Daughters in My Kingdom

Each sister in the ward should have received the new Relief Society book titled, "Daughters in My Kingdom."  If you have not, please let us know and we can make sure you get one!  
This book was inspired to bless our lives and we have been encouraged to open it, cherish it and apply it to our lives.  The book can also be read online and more information can be found at the following link:  
We, with Sister Beck, invite you to open this book and discover the blessed heritage we have as women in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and the blessing that heritage can be in strengthening and enriching us throughout our lives.
With Love,
Your 3rd Ward Relief Society Presidency

"Our presidency has prayed, fasted, pondered, and counseled with prophets, seers, and revelators to learn what God would have us do to help His daughters be strong in the face of “the calamity which should come upon the inhabitants of the earth.” An answer has come that the sisters of the Church should know and learn from the history of Relief Society. Understanding the history of Relief Society strengthens the foundational identity and worth of faithful women."
Sister Beck, General Relief Society Conference 2010

Service Auction was a hit!

Thank you, thank you to all who helped and all who joined us that evening! We had a great time and a lot of fun stuff auctioned off! We missed those who weren't able to make it. And thank you to Courtney and Alexes for the pictures!

We had a fabulous ice-cream sundae bar!

Our wonderful President Thatcher was our auctioneer, as was Laura Saganic (hope i spelled that right :) and both did a fantastic job!!

Service Auction!

With the holidays rolling around the corner, this month's relief society activity is a great way to connect with your sisters, share a little of yourself and enjoy a night together!

When:  October 18th, 7pm
Where:  Church Cultural Hall
What:  All that can or would like to will offer a service to be auctioned- from homemade bread or a full on meal to free airport rides or babysitting...sisters offer up something they can give to another sister.  Some are brought that night and auctioned off while others are rain checks able to be used at a later date.  Each sister takes a questionnaire before the auction starts that will allow her to accumulate a certain amount of points and then buy services as they are auctioned off.  

Note:  Babysitting will be provided in the nursery by a number of our wonderful husbands!
