Concordia's LWML
By Nancy Kovacs, President



At the March LWML meeting we discussed the upcoming summer months for 2018. We also had a guest speaker from Ft. Wayne Seminary, our adopted sem. Student, Craig Stephens. Craig told us about the life of a sem. Student at Ft. Wayne and thanked us for all the help we give to him and the seminary. In future meetings we will make plans to collect items such as books (for all ages), personal hygiene items, toys, coffee/tea and over the counter medicines.

The first event coming up is the Easter Breakfast to be held between the Easter Sunrise service and the 10:15 am Easter service. A signup list of needed items will up in the Narthex for the three Sundays before Easter.

On May 5, 2018 the Toledo LWML Zone will be holding their Spring Rally. Hosting the rally is Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 4155 Pickle Rd., Oregon, OH. Registration begins at 8:30 AM and the program at 9:30 AM. A breakfast will be provided by the Men's Group of Prince of Peace and served by the ladies. The theme is "God's hand of Rescue", Psalm 82:4 – "Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked." Guest speaker will be Jeff Wilbarger, Director of The Daughter Project.

Also, in May we will be looking into honoring the 1ST Responders of Hancock County, OH. This will take place after a worship service.

During several Sundays in April, May or June we will be celebrating the graduations of several young adults and their milestones in life. This year we will have graduations from the police academy, college and high school. Then later in the year will have a graduate from Navy basis training.

The favorite event for the summer will be back – "Muffins for MITES". One Sunday in each of the following months, June, July, August and September there will be refreshments after the service. A freewill collection will be taken for the LWML Mites, the mission grants program to help God's children all of the world.

On June 22 – 24, 2018 will be the Ohio District LWML Convention to be held in Dublin, OH. Presently, we have our two delegated and one alternate. The theme of the convention is "Walk in the Light" 1 John 1:7.

Last December there was a Secret Sister Reveal Tea which was greatly enjoyed by everyone who attended. It enjoyed so much that most of the ladies asked to have the Secret Sister program again this year. So, in February over 20 ladies became a part of this program.
