WELCA NEWS - YEAR 2016
Another year has gone by and the women of Faith have been busy. We had a successful bazaar in November. From that, the rummage sale in the spring and the ice cream social we had $2,700 to disperse to missions.
We sent to the St. Charles Resource Center (gas vouchers), Lutheran World Relief Kits, Faith Lutheran quilters, Good Shepherd Foundation, Dorothy Day Hospitality House, Women’s Shelter Inc., Ronald McDonald House, Winona State Lutheran Campus Center, Good Earth village, Semcac Senior Dining and the Gift of Life Transplant House.
We made quilts for Lutheran World Relief, Hope Lodge, Warming bible Place, Grace Place and we sold 30 quilts to our church members (which helps pay for more material for next year). We also make quilts for each baby that is baptized.
We also had an Ice Cream Social, Rummage Sale, Ash Wednesday Soup Supper and provided supper for VBS in June.
We served lunch for 5 funerals and each Circle did a month of coffee Fellowship.
Our meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at 1:30 p.m. Each Circle takes turns serving coffee and dessert.
THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HAS WORKED SO HARD SO WE CAN DO ALL OF THESE THINGS.
WE ENCOURGE MORE WOMEN OF THE CONGREGATION TO BECOME MORE INVOLVED IN THE CHURCH.
WE CAN ALWAYS USE MORE WORKERS. GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERYONE.
