The Northeast MN WOMEN’S SYNODICAL GATHERING meets at Sugar Lake Lodge in Grand Rapids from June 4-6. Women attending from Hope Lutheran include Shirley Dowson, Sherri Kiisa, Ardyce Pederson, Joanne Detwiler, and Sherren Foss, our delegate.
The Women of Hope circles have enjoyed collecting Baby Care Kit items for Lutheran World Ministries for several months. Although the Synodical focus has been on Newborn Kits for Global Health Ministries, the board made a decision to simplify our efforts and continue collecting for the Baby Care Kits only. We trust that all items are needed and that all babies will appreciate them!
