Grace LWML met Jan. 17

Grace Lutheran Womens Missions League met at Lizetta’s at 7 p.m. on Jan. 17.

The meeting was called to order by vice president Sandy B.

Pastor Dumperth led the Bible study from January Lutheran Witness titled “Hope for Life”.

Six members and the pastor attended.

Minutes of the last meeting were read and approved.

Peggy reported it was decided that Mission of Love would meet on the first and third Tuesdays for the winter months. Sue reported on the menus that will be used for funerals. Lu reported that the group served 43 people for the Doug Dick funeral.

Peggy moved to change the first sentence of Article III in LWML Constitution to read “Membership is open to any woman communicant member of any Lutheran Church Missouri Synod Congregation upon her request.”

Peggy discussed calling members to remind them about meetings. Sue volunteered to do the calling to members.

Sandy also discussed if the group wants to continue doing Mission of Love work after meetings. General consensus was everyone was too tired to do it.

The meeting was adjourned with the Lord’s Prayer.

Hostess for the evening was Lizetta.
