Things Concordia's LWML Society did during 2015 and Upcoming plans for 2016
We started out with Feature Chef Lenten dinners, each Wednesday night during Lent a member would be the chef for the main dish. This was so fun with the different themes from Italian and Mexican to breakfast for dinner to wild game and ending with a family chili cook off. The dinners raised $500 for Mites and a little of $500 for LHF (Arabic Small Catechisms). Everyone is looking forward to the 2016 Lenten dinners which will start on Ash Wednesday, February 18th.
Once again we had "Muffins for MITES" during one Sunday with month during the summer. There were more than just muffins there was fruit (for the ones eating healthy), cookies and brownies. The best was the fellowship after the worship service. So June 2016 will bring back the "Muffins for MITES" the dates will be available in March.
We saw our adopted seminary student Greg Bauch and his family go on his vicarage. In September we received a new adopted seminary student Daniel Ulrich and wife Katie who just came off of vicarage. We are so blessed to have the opportunity to get to know future Pastors and to help them with care packages from Findlay.
Speaking of care packages this year we sent out 8 college care packages in October. These packages were just in time for mid terms. In 2016 we will have 9 students receiving packages in February and April.
We ended 2015 with our Giving tree for the "Open Arms" Domestic Violence Center. God blessed us with many items needs for the center under the tree. On December 22nd a SUV loaded pulled into the parking lot of the center. In 2016 plans are being made to do more for the center.
A new Bible study will be plan for in January, these studies are held on Wednesday morning.
Also plans are being made for ladies to attend the LWML De Moines, Iowa Convention June 25-28, 2016. The theme is "BOUNTIFUL! Sow + Nourish + Reap – 2 Corinthians 9:8.
