Last Friday First Christan Church hosted World Day of Prayer for our community. The focus of this year’s program was “Camaroon.” The women of that country have compiled a program showcasing the history and needs of their country. This special World Day of Prayer is observed in 2,200 communities across the U.S., Canada and 170 countries around the world. A covered dish luncheon was held in the Church Fellowship Hall. This gathering of the ladies of our community is always a wonderful time to share faith and friendship, food – fun – and fellowship.
Everyone in attendance at this year’s World Day of Prayer was encouraged to bring a covered dish for the lunch that followed the service. Pictured above are Margi Dobson, Sharon Heller and Sally Colonna, all enjoying the delicious meal. Some of the ladies helping in the kitchen were Lee Marks, Marilyn Pool, Nita Levy and Melodi Hooper. Kathi Olechowski is seen admiring a native mask, similar to those seen worn in ceremonies by natives of Camaroon. Nita Levy and Lisa Stover arrange the buffet-style table before the crowd of women (and a few men) flow into the Fellowship Hall of First Christian Church for the lunch. An estimated 50 people attended the World Day of Prayer in Lexington last Friday morning. Visiting before the luncheon was served are Millie Wester, Pat Buetow and Nancy Perry. “The assortment of food was fantastic,” said many of the people who participated in the event.
