St. Petersburg, FL
I received this cross at the brunch held by the Women’s Ministry of Northeast Presbyterian Church. I am a proud member of “The Nora Circle”, a group of amazing women who had a vision for a ministry only for women. Our name is a tribute to a member of our church who died much too young from cancer. She inspired and touched everyone at NEPC with her courage, strength and sense of peace. She was a faithful Daughter of God and much beloved. Our Bible Study group wanted to have Nora as a rallying point to encourage the women of NEPC to unite and grow closer together in God. We have two services here — with awesome women in each service — but there never seemed to be an opportunity to get everyone together to learn about each other. God has blessed us and we have had 4 successful Saturday Brunches where women of all ages turn out, fellowship together, share a meal and become more united. Elizabeth was the perfect leader for our last brunch. The cross project was enthusiastically welcomed. We are hoping to plan another one next year. God always puts the right women in your path … We praise and thank Him for that. We want to serve our church, our community and the world !!
