From the Desk of the Connectional Lay Council’s General President Yvonne A. Tracey
Connectional Lay Council :: Yvonne TraceyWhy should I feel discouraged……His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me; Laity, we should count this time as our finest hour in and viagra generic cheap for Zion! The true sign of a committed and faithful laity is evidenced in our rising to higher heights when it appears that our backs are against the walls of buying propecia online the many individual and collective challenges at all levels in Zion. First, let me congratulate all who have helped to cialis buy push the mission and objectives of the CLC higher heights. For the past three years we have increased memberships; changed from “workshops” to implementing the Lay Academy; elected, as opposed to appointing our local, district and conference officers; showed up in increased numbers to connectional meeting and participated in the levitra attorneys drafting of several resolutions for the General Conference. The voices of Zion’s Laity are reverberating as they have not done in recent times. More importantly, I sense that we are more conscience of our role as strategic partners with the ordained clergy in fulfilling the mandate to make disciples for Jesus Christ through our ministries. Although, these changes are evident in many areas of Zion, in too many areas we still have a long ways to go.

  4. Plan to register and attend the http://faithinpractice.org/buying-real-viagra-online 10th Quadrennial Lay Convention in Montgomery, AL. July 27 – August 1, 2013.

  5. Mentor our youth, young adults; evangelize, encourage and edify our local church families.
