The Spring Gathering of the Presbyterian Women

The Spring Gathering of the Presbyterian Women was an absolute delight, one you should not have missed. In tandem with the gorgeous weather of the most perfect spring day outside, beautiful spring floral arrangements created by Sophie Stone and her flower arrangement class graced the whole premises inside. The Women’s Association of Trinity Presbyterian Church in Paramus very graciously hosted the event, treating the women with coffee & donuts upon arrival, and a lovely lunch in their auditorium. Meanwhile in the sanctuary, fruitful seeds were being planted by the illustrious minds of Dr. Wanda Lundy of First Presbyterian Church in Edgewater, and Pastor Julissa Alvarez-Garcia of “Primera Iglesia Presbiteriana Principe de Paz” of Shrewsbury N.J. What a team, joined together by God’s will, they each brought to light through Divine intervention thought provoking reminders of how we each have been appointed to bear much fruit.
