     Our annual Christmas luncheon was held on December 7th. Lunch was served at noon. Casseroles were furnished by Tamra Berg, Carol Gjemse, Helen Feil and Dorothy Hjermstad. Desserts were provided by Cindy Lyon, Ann Romo and Sue Davidson. Wanda Yngsdal, Janice Nelson and Sara Dahling provided the salads. Lori Lyon decorated for the day and Mardell Johnson and Phyllis Forss helped with the punch. We were glad JoAnn Loken could join us for the Christmas Luncheon.

            After the meal, everyone moved upstairs for the program. Shayla Anfinson played piano. Dorothy Hjermstad opened the program as we all sang, ‘Joy to the World’. Devotions were given by Sue Davidson. The gift of Jesus, given at Christmas, has ‘all the extras’. Colossians 3:12. We all sang, ‘The First Noel’ and ‘Away in the Manger’ and ‘O Christmas Tree’ as Ali Coulter shared some history of the song, ‘O Tannenbaum’. Martin Luther was credited for one of the first Christmas trees. Lighted candles were put on the trees. Queen Victoria took a family picture by a Christmas tree and everyone wanted one after that! Dorothy Hjermstad shared a story of her family’s interesting tree one year! Mary Jo Helland assisted Ali. Ali shared her love of quilting and showed us how to make an ornament out of small patches of material. Mary Jo passed out ornaments so we could pick one out to take home with us. A word search was handed out with ornaments as the theme. The program closed with all of us singing, ‘Go tell it on the Mountain’ and praying the Lord’s prayer.

            The Council has asked the WMF ladies to serve Potluck at the Congregational Meeting on January 26 which is late church. The ladies have agreed to do that.

            We were also able to donate three quilts (one for each family) to the Goodhue County Christmas Project along with $50 to help with the costs of the food/fuel gift cards.

            As 2019 comes to a close let us remember to be thankful for the many blessings God has given us. God always gives us what we need!       

Sue and Tamra
