          The WMF booklets should be out soon. We have "lost" the formatted form which was used so we are trying to recreate the information. We ask that the ladies read them and take note of your assignments when you do get them. The board will also try to publish upcoming events in the church bulletin. Many of our faithful WMF members are slowing down a bit and that means the next generation has to "step up to the plate". At the November WMF meeting all the ladies in attendance worked at getting some newer members involved in WMF activities.

            Thanks to the WMF ladies for bringing food and serving at the Annual Meeting. We had a nice lunch following the meeting. Janice and Cindy Lyon posted a sign-up sheet for the lunch and we had a great response. Special thanks to the kitchen help: Ann Romo, Wanda Yngsdal, Carol Gjemse along with others who offered to help. We also enjoyed the special treat of lefse made the day before.

            Just a reminder about what WMF is: The Women's Missionary Federation (WMF) is a ministry of ALL women of Emmanuel Lutheran Church. Even if you do not belong to a bible study group (Circle) or are not a regular member of Emmanuel you are still a member of WMF. Yearly dues are paid by the treasurer to the WMF headquarters for every woman of the church. Monies that are collected by the WMF are used to pay the dues, but most of the money that is collected is used toward missions. Our WMF also tries to choose local organizations that need additional financial support. Please read the 2018 WMF Treasurer's Report to see just how many groups received our help. The WMF also has a Serving Commitee which is called upon to serve at the funerals for members of our church family. So, when you get a call to make a cake, bring pickles or donate money please know that you are helping support a grieving family. Money collected is used to offset food expenses and the remainder is placed in the WMF account to be used toward missions. We also have a group of dedicated quilters who organize a couple days of tying quilts with other WMF ladies. These quilts are given with love to members of our congregation, Marie Sandvick Center, women's shelters, the Christmas families, and anyone else that may have a need. Emmanuel is truly blessed to have such a devoted group of wonderful ladies who continue to support God's work in helping others.
