Artesian First Lutheran meeting held

Artesian First Lutheran and area women met at the church on Friday, Oct. 27. Those who attended were: Judi Larson, Joyce Olson, Jess Ludvik, Wanda Effling, Jean Wormstadt, Jan Peskey, Vickie Scott, Judy Wormstadt, Terri Moore, Gwen Effling and Jerolyn Dean.
The evening began at 6:30 p.m. with a business meeting. Judy Wormstadt reported that the items collected for Lutheran World Relief were delivered to Brookings, where a semi-truck takes the items to Minneapolis to the LWR Warehouse. There is an efficient distribution process in place to get the items to the people overseas who need them. This year, there were 26 quilts, 90 school kits, as well as several kits for personal care, baby care, sewing and also soap. The ladies are grateful to all those who helped in any way, and a special thank you to Judy Wormstadt and Angie Scott for delivering the items to the truck in Brookings.
The quilt that was sewn for the Lutheran Outdoors Quilt Auction received a blue ribbon at the SD State Fair. Rather than sending the quilt to the auction, Shirley Olson purchased the quilt at the Unity Service. Thank you, Shirley!
The annual Harvest Festival, which has replaced the Church Supper, would be Nov. 5, with an 11 a.m. church service, followed by a potluck dinner and a bazaar table.
Thankofferings will be gathered during the 9:30 a.m. worship service on Nov. 19.
Christmas holiday projects were discussed, and the group will be contributing to The Angel Tree, turkeys (purchased with filled stamp cards from County Fair) and food items for the Sanborn County Food Pantry, as well as other projects similar to things they have done in past years. Any new suggestions are welcome.
The WWTS Christmas program will be held Wednesday, Dec. 13, at 6 p.m., and the women’s group will serve lunch following the program.
In lieu of Bible study, Jerolyn Dean showed some pictures and talked about her recent trip to Israel and Egypt. The trip was led by Pastor Nabil Nour, who is a Missouri Lutheran Pastor in Hartford. He was born in Nazareth and has been leading tours for over 20 years. He speaks the native languages and is extremely well versed in all aspects of life in the Holy Land. There were 19 people in the tour group.
The group prayed the Lord’s Prayer, and Judy Wormstadt served lunch.
The latter part of the evening was spent arranging blocks and putting together quilt kits. They hope to have some quilts completed for distribution during the Christmas season.
