Women's Ministry Christmas Brunch

On Saturday, December 8, RCC had its annual Women's Ministry Christmas Brunch at the beautiful Korljan Residence. "Christmas Traditions" was the theme, and we enjoyed a devotional, some carol-singing, and a time of sharing our own traditions. And the food was great (and plentiful)!

Celeste Talley hosted, and we’re thankful for her hard work as well as the contributions of others. Thank you to Ginger for letting us invade her abode, Barbara Campbell and Evelyn Oakes for bringing to life their own traditions, and the other women who helped out!

Below you will find these great Christmas Trivia Games that you might want to use! But don’t miss the photos under that!
