LWML & Ladies Aid Meeting

October 1, 2017 - St. John Ladies Aid met on September 27, 2017. We opened the meeting by singing the Doxology,"Praise God from Whom all Blessings Flow". Shelley Toensing led us in Bible Study on "A Fountain of Blessings". We ended Bible Study with prayer and singing the hymn, "Come Thou Fount of every Blessing".

Roll call was taken with twelve members present. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. The treasurer's report was given and approved.

OLD BUSINESS: The plans for Reformation Sunday are pretty well completed. We discussed taking the flowers from our church basement to Bethlehem after next month's Ladies Aid meeting.

NEW BUSINESS: JoAnn Renner said the linens under the candlesticks on the Altar are getting very thin and needs replacing. There is also some communion ware that may need replacing. Carol Brinkmeyer will check into what needs to be replaced and where to go to replace them.

Marilyn Nast was hostess in September and LaVonne Nitzel will be our hostess for October. Linda Pomajzl celebrated a birthday in September, and anniversaries were celebrated by Ray and Bonnie Bleich, Freddie and Olga Weidner, Wally and Noreen Wild, Del and Irene Reiss and Elmer and Darleen Dittmer.

The meeting was closed with the Lord's Prayer and the common table prayer. - Shirley Reetz, Secretary
