The Artesian area Walking With the Savior (WWTS) will begin Aug. 15 from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. at the Artesian First Lutheran Church. Another year of fun and learning is planned for the youth.  This year we will be featuring the Bible Old Testament and all the wonderful stories from there including Creation, Adam and Eve, Noah’s Ark, Abraham and Pharaoh, Moses, and many more. There will be special activities, crafts, songs and games to enhance each lesson. All youth ages kindergarten through sixth grade are welcome. If you have any questions, please call Judy Wormstadt at 527-2342. 

Mitchell — A total of 348 students at Mitchell Technical Institute have been placed on the Spring Semester 2018 President’s List, according to MTI President Mark Wilson. To be named to the list, students must earn a term GPA of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and complete at least 12 credit hours of academic work during the semester.

Included on the Spring 2018 President’s List were Logan Effling and Thomas Hetland, both of Artesian, Cortney Walker of Letcher, and Phillip Goettsch, Joseph Jackson, and Ty Ziebart, all of Woonsocket.

Quilting, fun and fellowship were the themes of the First Lutheran Quilters gathering on Thursday evening, July 19, at the church. Those attending were Jean Wormstadt, Terry Moore, Gwen Effling, and Judy Wormstadt.

Jean brought several sausage roll pillowcases she made for show and tell. She plans to donate them to one of the areas of need in the community.

Judy completed the top for the Lutheran outdoors quilt and it has been on display at the church the last couple Sundays.

Gwen worked on the binding and backing for the quilt, and Terry and Jean layered up some full-size and baby quilts.  

Lunch, the Lord’s Prayer and devotions were shared by the gals.

The next planned circle and quilting gathering for the group is Tuesday, July 31.  Everyone is welcome.
