A Commemoration Service ∙ Director Committee Christmas Gathering
Established in 1922, Seoul YWCA celebrated its 91st anniversary of its founding on December 9th (Sunday) holding a commemoration service and a director committee Christmas gathering.
YWCA’s words of worship and thanks to God for having been with Seoul YWCA throughout these 91 years was given by pastor Jeong Seok Hwan, whose words were based on his subject of ‘Please Look After Mom’. Pastor Jeong Seok Hwan spoke of a passage from the Corinthians chapter 3 verses 8-11, encouraging Seoul Y to restore its first love from when it was founded 91 years ago, and reinsured that the continuing history of Seoul Y will be one that is prosperous and fortunate as it was throughout these past 91 years. Pastor Jeong Seok Hwan further blessed and encouraged Seoul Y, which is headed towards its 100 years of founding, to strive to become a gospel community that pushes people to live and to become a community that spreads the gospels of life and peace. The offerings of this day were given to the Myanmar’s children and women education community service taking place on January 2014.
After the commemoration service, recognitions were given to directors and members who have worked diligently during the year 2013, and awards were given to departments that strove to increase the number of recruits. First, introducing honorary members and former directors, and later having everyone standing to say YWCA’s goals ended the first half of the ceremony.
During the second half of the ceremony pastor Ha Jeong Wan organized ‘Greeting Christmas through film’. Watching the movie
and how the birth of Jesus gave
hope for those who are poor and of low-birth, Seoul Y with a history of 91
years was reminded of the need to help the poor.
We give our most sincere gratitude to God who has been with Seoul Y for these past 91 years, and to all members who have given us their love and support.
