meeting, Thursday, February 8 at 7:00p
The Laurel Guild is a women’s group that meets in one another’s homes once
a month, excepting June, July, and August. The meetings begin at 7:00pm with devotions and prayer.
This group supports the work of the White Cross by preparing school and health kits as well as roller bandages.
Donations are made regularly to Mary’s Place which serves the Burmese refugee community in the city of Rochester.
The Guild is also a strong supporter of Aurora House, a recently opened hospice in the town of Ogden. These
are just a few of the areas the Guild supports.
Fund raisers include an annual
dinner put on in October and a bake sale at the polls on Election Day. Recipes were gathered from members
and friends of OBC a few years ago and a cookbook was published. There are still copies available for $10
each. Often, the Guild will contribute to a financial need of the church as well as maintaining kitchen
supplies. The group also sends cards for birthdays and to those dealing with illness.
