On July 12, Sue and Tamra served 13 ladies for Honoring Senior Members lunch. Janice Nelson gave devotions. A combined Bible study from the circles and a short business meeting took place. The ladies then enjoyed lunch with the special treat of three choices of pie, coconut cream, key lime and apple. Coconut cream was the pie of choice. Since our business meeting in March the serving committee has served 5 funerals. Our WMF received generous donations from the families for serving. We also received a 60-cup coffee pot along with paper products from the Jane Froelich family. A thank you note was sent. Many quilts were given to Ruth’s House in Faribault and a thank-you note was received. Two twin quilts were also donated to the silent auction benefit for Jennifer Lerfald who had suffered a stroke. Coffee time after church was discussed. It looks like not too many sign up. A reminder that anyone can serve with the funds collected going to wherever the servers choose it to go. It was mentioned that Molly has also gotten funds and buys packaged cookies to be served.

Attendance numbers were up for our salad supper in June. Thank you to the kitchen workers and Lori Thompson for the decorations. There were a few members attending the WMF day in June at the ARC. The water situation is much better thanks to the diligence of Steve Melhouse. The WMF has discussed doing a program at the Kenyon Senior Living in August but Tamra has since checked and they currently do not want groups to come in. They feel COVID is still active. Kenyon Senior Living no longer has a chaplain on staff. The chaplain fund was not being supported by several churches. It is unclear how they are handling the residents’ spiritual needs.

A reminder that we have the Singspiration in September, Tri-State District Rally in October, WMF business meeting and election of officers in November. It was mentioned that if anyone is interested in any of the officer positions to let one of the current officers know. December activities were discussed. Looking for ideas to replace the Advent Luncheon. Marie Sandvik Center was given the collection from that day along with hats and mittens. Their location in Minneapolis is not in a safe area and they have restricted hours in which you can bring items. We will inquire about a possible winter clothing drive, having someone speak and maybe they would pick up collected items. Lori Thompson will coordinate the Samaritan’s Purse shoebox project. Dorothy Hjermstad has offered to coordinate the Goodhue County Family Project at least for this year. We also continue to keep Ruthann Nelson, Shirley Peterson and Jessie Otterness in our prayers. We miss seeing these ladies.

Christmas is coming!

Time to get ready for Samaritan’s Purse ‘Operation Christmas Child’ shoeboxes.

Help bring the Good News of the Gospel to boys and girls around the world.

‘How ‘To Pack A Shoebox’ brochures are now available at Emmanuel. The brochures explain everything you need to know for packing a shoebox.  This is a perfect time to purchase items during the “back to school” sales.

Shoeboxes, Shoebox stories and packing tips will be in the weekly church bulletins. If you have any questions, you may contact Lori Thompson.

Jesus said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.”
