Views from the Rockies
Our newsletter, Views from the Rockies, is produced and circulated by the Rocky Mountain Synodical Women's Organization (RMSWO). It provides information concerning current programs, projects, and other information. Here women share their ideas, their thoughts, their concerns, and their joys. The Views from the Rockies seeks to provide the news that all women in the Rocky Mountain Synod need, not just for leaders but also for laywomen.
Check out the December 2018 issue of Views from the Rockies!
From the November issue, here are two photos from our 2017 Fall Gathering In-Kind... ten tie-blankets for Sarah's Home and hygiene kits for the homeless.
