First Lutheran Circle meets

Artesian First Lutheran Circle met March 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the church. Several members of the women’s group attended as well as representatives from other area churches who came to hear the guest speaker.
The meeting began with a presentation from Cindy Novachich, the leader of the Mitchell Snack Pack Program. Cindy shared her experiences and explained how she was able to start the Mitchell program. The Snack Pack Program provides weekend food packs for children who qualify. The packs are distributed confidentially at the schools on Fridays. We welcome input and will give careful thought to the possibility of starting such a program in our community.  The representatives from the various churches will share what was learned about the program with their members and the group will meet again at a future time to discuss the feasibility of a local project.
President Judy Wormstadt opened the business meeting with devotions titled “A Lesson from Crayons.” Deanna Dean shared information from the World Day of Prayer about the Mitchell Area Safehouse.
Upcoming events discussed included: bake sale on March 30 (ladies please have baked goods to the community center by 9 a.m.); Medary Conference spring gathering at Volga on April 20; Impact Lives on April 27 at Mitchell Corn Palace; World Malaria and Cameroon Roof Project; Love Feast on May 23 at Mitchell First Methodist Church; and making quilts for Lutheran World Relief. Quilting will be done at the church from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesdays in April, starting April 10. All helpers are welcome and need not be experienced quilters.
The group sang the table prayer and said the Lord’s Prayer. The meeting ended with lunch served by Jerolyn Dean.
