Ladies Aid Meeting Notes

November 1, 2020 - St. John’s Ladies Aid met on October 28, 2020, with LaVonne Nitzel as hostess. We began with singing “I Am Trusting You Lord Jesus”. Pastor Toensing led us in prayer and a Bible study entitled, “Heroes of the Faith: Mary and Martha”.

  • Roll call was taken with 5 members present.
  • The minutes of the September meeting were read and approved.
  • The treasurer’s report was given.
  • Diane reported that Janice purchased 5 totes for storing the holiday decorations for the church. Those have now been filled and placed in storage.
  • We discussed the Covid-19 pandemic situation. Due to the rise in the number of cases in our area at the present time and the regulations that would keep us from our usual holiday activities, a motion was made and passed to cancel Ladies Aid meetings until January, 2021. Normally, we hold election of officers in November for the following year. We will continue with our current officers until we meet again in January, 2021.
  • A motion was made and passed to make our Christmas time donations as usual. Janice Reetz will also purchase Christmas gifts for our shut-ins.

Jess Eggert and Dianne Kouba had birthdays in October. LeRoy and Donna Hillgren celebrated an anniversary. The meeting closed with the Lord’s Prayer and the Table Prayer.
