Immanuel Lutheran Ladies Aid 3 met Sept. 15 at The Pines Restaurant for a dinner meeting.
Guests were Vicar Joel Newton and his wife, Sarah Newton, intern deaconess of Immanuel.
Vicar Newton gave a biography of his life that led him to being a seminary student.
Sarah also gave her path that led to the seminary in St. Louis, previously having received a degree in psychology from college.
Vicar gave a devotion, “Am I Alone at Being a Christian” based on 2 Timothy 1:3. There is an open treasury chest of what has been taught and shared.
President Jane Pardieck opened the meeting. Roll call was answered by 19 members and one guest, Carolyn Benter.
Minutes from the last meeting were read and amended. Linda Kamman gave the treasury report.
The arts and crafts committee of Norma Kilgas and Ann Mahan reported on the progress of the Nov. 3 craft show. A sheet was passed around for donations of food. Rosalie Grabinski asked for more food to be donated.
The visitation committee had no report, and neither did the Christmas committee. Next month, Sharon Klakamp and Evelyn Krebs will have visitations.
The committee of Janis Mundt, Jan Behrens and Pat Weasner have worked up a rough draft of a pamphlet for the membership drive. More discussion will follow next month as well as another reading of the constitution changes.
It was voted to have the next meeting at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 2 so a group picture can be taken outside before dark. All members are urged to attend. Mites will be collected. Grabinski and Susan Foster will be hostesses for the meeting.
The meeting closed with the Lord’s Prayer.
Marlis Kilgas and Grabinski of the cheer committee were hostesses for the evening. Two games were played with Mundt and Benter each winning a prize.
