LWML Meeting Highlights

LUTHERAN MALARIA INITIATIVE

LCMS is helping to diminish the deaths of children by Malaria in Africa through the Lutheran Malaria Initiative. One of the best ways to do this is providing nets to protect the children from mosquito bites. As little as $10 buys a net. You can join in this initiative by putting your donation in the offering plate and marking it Malaria Initiative. Together we will save many lives.

LWML MEETING DAY AND TIME CHANGE

The LWML meeting day and time has changed beginning in 2013.  The monthly meetings will now be held on the first Tuesday of each month, beginning at 7:00 pm.  (Jan. meeting will be on the second Tues. because of New Year’s Day.)

All ladies of the congregation are invited and encouraged to join us as we continue to work in the mission field, both here and internationally.

Hope to see you Tuesday, Jan. 8, at 7:00 pm.

 

SHOES FOR AFRICA

 There are thousands of men, women and children in Africa that don’t own even one pair of shoes.  The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League is collecting used shoes through the month of August that will be sent to Africa.  Help by bringing shoes you no longer wear or want and place them in the  “big shoe box” in the narthex.  All sizes and styles are needed.  Tying shoe strings together, or putting a rubber band around individual pairs, would be a big help.  Thanks!  Please have shoes here by next Sunday, Aug. 26.
