Women of Hope
Christmas in July, another great event!
We hope you were able to attend our Christmas in July event. It was another very successful day. Around 300 guests enjoyed our salad luncheon and others came only to shop and were overwhelmed with the endless displays of craft items, baked goods, greeting cards, plants, etc. We will have a follow-up meeting on August 15th at 10:00 am to discuss how things went and begin making tentative plans for next year’s event. Coffee and rolls will be served. You ladies of Hope are wonderful! Thank you for all of your hard work to make this event such a fun experience for our community.

School bags for Lutheran World Relief
August 8 @ 9:00 a.m. We will be working on School bags - sewing and stringing. Hop into the Fellowship Hall - we’ve got a job for you!!
Kitchen Cleaning, August 20
August 20 @ 9:00 a.m. Miriam Circle is in charge of kitchen cleaning. However, because no cleaning was done in July and we have had many events going on using the kitchen, we anticipate a lot of extra hard cleaning will be required. We welcome anyone to come and join us as we clean, scrub and polish. It’s a great time just to chat while we work and catch up on what’s happening with one another.
Ladies Fall Brunch & Bible Study, Sept. 12
September 12 @ 9:30 a.m. Our Fall brunch/Bible Study/General meeting will occur. Pastor Matt will be leading our study; Hannah Circle will be our hosts; Thankofferings will be collected. This is our “start-up” for our Women of Hope 2018-2019 year. Plan to attend.
