The group met Monday, March 22, at 1 p.m. at the church, with the main event being a surprise birthday gathering for Judi Larson. The gals sang “Happy Birthday,” enjoyed strawberry short cake  and gave the birthday girl her cards. The Lord’s Prayer was prayed and the Table Blessing sang. Devotions, The Seven Questions about the Passion of Christ, were  shared together. 

Business items discussed were: Church cleaning with a list of jobs to be done before Easter posted at the church. Those able to help can go to the church on their own schedule and cross jobs off the list as they are completed.

The annual Easter Bake Sale and Quilt Auction is to be held Saturday, April 3, from 9:30-11 a.m. at the Artesian Community Center. Ladies are to have their baked goods to the community center by 9 a.m. Raffle tickets are available from the church ladies or the day of the bake sale. The winner will be drawn on Saturday and may choose one of the six quilts on display. All proceeds from the bake sale and quilt raffle will go to the Artesian First Lutheran Roof Repair Fund. It was decided to give one of the completed baby quilts to Aylivia Kaiser, as she has now come home from the hospital.

The gals signed a thank you note for Gwen Effling for the three completed quilt tops she sewed and gave to the group for the mission projects. The rest of the afternoon was spent working on quilts.

The Prairie Lutheran Parish, which includes Artesian First Lutheran, Carthage Trinity Lutheran, and Immanuel Lutheran of rural Iroquois, had a very special Christmas Eve service at 5 p.m. at Immanuel Lutheran. Members and friends were invited to come a little early and enjoy a live nativity scene set up by Mike and Lori Peskey and their children, Blake and Kyla. The nativity included Mary (Kyla Peskey), Joseph, (Blake Peskey), baby Jesus (a doll)  in a feed bunk,  three sheep, three yearling calves, two horses and of course the star. Pastor Josh Knudsen led the outdoor worship service with a radio transmitter on a decorated flatbed trailer. Those attending were encouraged to step out of their vehicles with battery candles and sing “Silent Night”.  The service was very meaningful, and there was a large crowd in attendance. Immanuel members said they hadn’t had a live nativity on Christmas Eve for over 40 years.
