Installation Coffee

The Ladies of the Guild attended The Installation Coffee on Friday, May 13, 2022, at the home of President and Mrs. Sloan. It was a beautiful morning and the lovely event was a wonderful reunion for the members to be back together in an intimate and gorgeous setting.

The event was co-chaired by Gena Wilimitis and Lynn Kiesewetter along with the help of Ann Bussey, Patti Bailey, Judy Childress, Cookie Peeler, Debra Perich, Jan Witham, and Rhonda Ekholm who set up a bountiful buffet of savory and sweet refreshment for the ladies to enjoy.

Judy Craig, our outgoing President, welcomed everyone warmly and said it was an honor for her to serve. She introduced Dr. Sloan and presented him with gifts from the Guild of 27 scholarships: 19 annual and 8 endowed! He, in turn, presented Judy with a mounted and framed biblical scripture from a Pre-1650 King James Bible, and Galatians 2:20 is the highlighted verse. He also thanked all of us for our service to Houston Christian University.

Cheryl Kaminski did the honor of installing the new officers and committee chairs for 2022-23. Our new President, Jeanne Walker’s scripture verse for this year is “Be Joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in ALL circumstances. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” 1Thessalonians 5:16. Cheryl gave an inspiring message explaining the meaning of the verse. Having Joyful Hearts and Being Thankful Always is our focus for this year as The Guild continues to be supportive, generous givers, doers of good works and servants for the University.

Jeanne presented each of her new officers with a Flower and Vine Design ornament with the scripture verse 1 Thessalonians 5:16 painted on it.

Executive Director, Sharon Saunders concluded our time together by praising all of the members for helping to raise more than $100,000 for scholarships this past year! It was a joyful occasion.
