On April 20, 2013, after much discussion and planning, the Fraser Valley Zone adopted a new format. There will be five elected positions known as Advisory Committee and a representative from each society.
The ABC LWMLC district invited Vancouver and Fraser Valley zones to present a proposal to host the 2016 ABC district convention. This was unanimously accepted by the zone members. Preliminary planning has begun.
Theme for the zone’s 2013 Spring Renewal was “Women in the Word – in Fellowship with Jesus” based on Matthew 18:20: “for where two or three are gathered in My name, there I am with them.”
Rev. Laverne Hautz developed the theme through a Bible study that focused on four New Testament women, Mary, Joanna, Lydia and Eunice. At the afternoon communion service, Rev. Kim, preached a message based on Matthew 18:15-20.
The day ended with an invitation from St. Luke LWMLC to join them Saturday, September 28, 2013, for the Fall Rally. A leadership workshop is planned for Saturday, October 26, 2013, final details to be announced at a later date.
