Welcome poem for new women at church


I love summertime! It sure is getting hot but I just love the fun atmosphere of summer and I also love that the population of my town goes down by about 30,000 during the summer and the traffic is gone! Wahoo to that!

Anyway, I have been asked to serve as the Secretary of our Women's Group at church and we are using a little poem that was sent to us. (I am so excited to be serving in this calling, I love the women who I go to church with and I have missed them the last year and a half that I have been helping with the children's class) The poem is attached to a little bag with all the highlighted words included in the bag. Its like a "welcome to our group" and "here is your starter kit" kind of thing but its got this cute poem attached to it and I thought I would share it. We give these to women who just join our church and to women who are graduating out of high school and entering the women's group that we call Relief Society. Its a Sisterhood of women!

Anyway, here is the poem. We printed it out and matted it on cute decorative card stock and tied it to their bag. You could also use a basket or substitute items as needed.

When you come join us, we'll be glad to welcome you,
Into our WORLDWIDE SISTERHOOD, and to a group that's new.
So here's a little something to help you on your way,
As you head off for Relief Society and to a brand new day
You'll need a lesson manual with precious truths inside,
The lessons strengthen testimonies as they are taught worldwide.

Now when you find the meeting great and need to remember what you heard
Just use the pad and pencil to write down every word.

The tissues are for wiping tears when lessons touch your heart,
And we know you will love them all, right from the very start!
Here's a bookmark for your scriptures.
Please take them every week.
We'll study them together, as guidance we will seek.
You'll benefit if you will "CHEWS" to mingle with the flock,
By attending Enrichment Activities, you'll find
Relief Society really ROCKS!
And last, an invitation in which every word rings true,
"Cause you should know that Relief Society
Has a special place for YOU!
With Love,
Your Relief Society Presidency
