The Pine Bluff Christian Women’s Connection will hold its outreach luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 17, at the Pine Bluff Country Club.

The speaker will be Meryl Bishop, an author from South Portland, Maine. Her topic will be “Discover New Oceans.” Bishop will also have her book available for sale.

“Originally from South Africa, Ms. Bishop will share how she came to understand ‘you cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore’,”according to a news release.

The feature will be the annual Silent auction and White elephant Sale. Those who wish to donate items are encouraged to arrive early and bring items priced. This is a fundraiser to help Stonecroft ministries and the local Christian Women’s group with their outreach projects, according to the release.

The luncheon menu is honey roasted pork loin, rice and broccoli, with pecan pie for dessert. The meal is $13.50, which includes tax and gratuity.

Reservations are required. For reservations, contact Jennifer Keahey at 870-540-9302, by the morning of Tuesday, Oct. 15.
