WELCA Circle Letter
“Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.” Jeremiah 29:12
Greetings to each of you. I pray that we will continue to be blessed with peace and health during these summer months.
Although we are not meeting in June and July we still have needs to be met during these months. We are asking for monetary donations to purchase items for Lutheran World Relief. We hope to do school kits, personal care kits, baby kits and fabric kits. The Craft Group is well on its way for our donation of quilts. We’re asking for monetary donations because the specifications for the kit items are rigid. A check made out to WELCA can be placed in the offering and we also have blue WELCA offering envelopes available in the Narthex for cash donations. The LWR truck will be here in September, so we hope to have everything purchased and packaged by the end of August.
The spaghetti dinner for LWR is scheduled for August 14th. As usual we’ll have lots of exciting items available for the silent auction along with a wonderful meal. We’ll be glad to prepare takeout’s if you’re not able to stay and enjoy the food with other members of the congregation.
On Father’s Day the Social Ministry Committee is preparing a pancake breakfast between the services. There will be pancakes, sausage or bacon, juice and coffee. We hope you’ll be there to share the fellowship with us.
Please remember our shut-ins and those who are unable to worship with us. I’m sure that visits would be welcomed if you feel so inclined. The primary thing is to make sure that everyone knows we’re praying for and thinking about them, even though they are unable to be with us at services on Sunday.
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 12-21
In His Love,
