Celebration Women at Wesley UMC in Nederland, Texas
On August 19, following the Celebration United event, our newest Celebration chapter was chartered at Wesley United Methodist Church.
The chapter was chartered “Nederland Chapter” and is open to all women of Nederland. Carolyn Newsom is the president of the chapter with Fran Lee, Cathy Butler, Denice Alexander, Brenda Richards, Lisa Spalding, and Barbara Vincent serving on the board.
The Nederland Celebration Chapter will be meeting bi-monthly on Saturday mornings. Celebration is blessed to be gaining a new chapter, and with it the opportunity to meet new Celebration Sisters!
Praise the Lord!
Sixty-five women from 16 churches met for the Celebration United event on Saturday, August 19, 2017, at Wesley United Methodist Church in Nederland.
Rev. Dr. Janice Gilbert gave a powerful message from the Celebration theme scripture, Luke 4:18-19. She reminded us that the scripture has been fulfilled in us, and that we have been anointed for “such a time as this” and then invited every woman to come forward to be anointed with oil. Dr. Gilbert encouraged us to “RISE UP!” as anointing empowers us to do the work of The King.
The Celebration National Board sponsored the event. Thank you to Rev. Dr. Douglas Caldwell, pastor at Wesley, for his continued support of Celebration Women’s Ministry, and to the ladies of Wesley who provided brunch and set up for the event.
