LWML News - "Quilts for Russia" Update

July 30, 2018 - The “Piece Makers” have been very busy working on quilts to send with Karen Tiedeman in October for the new Hannah House. Special thanks to everyone who has donated supplied, joined us for quilting day and worked on sewing at home. We couldn’t do it without the help of you all. But now comes the fun part!

Be sure to join us for worship on September 9th when all the quilts will be displayed before they are sent to Russia. Once these quilts are done we will go back to making cot size quilts again for the orphanages. The quilt project is in need of help with supplies for the quilts. Each quilt is filled with something to increase the warmth. If you have old blankets, mattress pads, drapery, etc, we can use them for filling. They should be clean but it is ok for them to be stained, worn or even with holes in them, since they will be completely covered up. Whatever you can donate will be appreciated! Place items in the quilt box in the narthex. Your donations are always welcome and needed.

Ladies Aid Meeting

July 30, 2018 - St. John Ladies Aid met on July 25, 2018, with JoAnn Renner as hostess. The meeting opened by singing, "What Wondrous Love is This". Pastor Toensing led us in Bible Study followed by prayer. Carol Brinkmeyer led the meeting since Diane Kahle had a previous commitment. Roll call was taken with eight members present. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved and the treasurer's report was given.

OLD BUSINESS: The Fish Feed was held on July 8th with a good turnout.

NEW BUSINESS: Carol asked what we would like to have in the new fellowship hall if we should get one. Most ideas were what we would like to have in the kitchen.

Birthdays were celebrated in July by Janice Reetz, Marilyn Nast, LaVonne Nitzel and Barb Meinke. An anniversary was celebrated by Pastor and Carol Brinkmeyer. The meeting closed with the Lord's Prayer and the common table prayer. Respectfully, Shirley Reetz, Secretary
