Cultivating PW through the Mission Pledge

In March Sally Judge, who is the CCT Representative on the Synod of the Sun CT, traveled to Brenham, TX for a Spring Gathering. She displayed a “PW Flower Bucket” which represents Cultivating PW through the Mission Pledge. The Stewardship Committee of the PW Board of Directors assembled the basics and requested each Synod Representative to complete the arrangement to display at presbytery and synod PW events.

The “flower arrangement” is a fun way to share and promote the work of PW’s Annual Fund, also known as the Mission Pledge. Sally plans on visiting other presbytery events throughout the year.
