Ladies Guild - Lutheran Women's Missionary League
Chair: Judy Riemer

MISSION

To assist each woman of the Lutheran Church Missour Synod in affirming her relationship with the Triune God so that she is enabled to use her gifts in ministry to the people of the world.

The Salem Ladies Guild shall foster a spirit of Christian fellowship and mutual cooperation with the organization; promote fellowship within the local congregation and to aid in its work; and to help build Christ's Kingdom at home and abroad.  The Guild is a member of the Central Illinois District of the LWML.

All women of the congregation are invited to join us on the 3rd Monday evening every January, April, July, and October for Christian fellowship.

By the grace of God, faithful supporters from across the nation have given their mites to achieve the LWML'songoing mission goal. This amazing total combines funds from the 40 districts and national level of the LWML. To God be the glory!!

GUILD GRAPEVINE

I am the vine; you are the branches.  If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.  Mark 15:5

The Salem Ladies Guild has gotten off to a busy start in 2012.  February was dedicated to gathering donations for the Seminary Food Bank.  As always, members of our Congregation gave generously and for this we give our thanks.  Members of the Guild will deliver the food to the Seminary Thursday, March 15.  We will meet at the Annex parking lot at 7:30 AM, attend Chapel service and lunch at Josephine’s on our return trip.  Please contact Sharon DeLong if you plan to attend.  A special note of thanks for Sharon and Joan Koschmann for their leadership in this annual in-gathering.

We thank you for your assistance and donations for the Lenten dinner February 29.  Taco salads were delicious and enjoyed by all who attended.  Thank you to Lauretta Scheller, Joyce McDade and Karen Engebrecht for chairing this event.

The annual Fellowship Breakfast with the ladies of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church will be held Saturday, March 10 at 9:30 AM at Redeemer.  This is a wonderful way to share God’s blessings and focus on the Lord’s passion during the Lenten Season.

Please mark your calendar for the next quarterly meeting to be held Monday, April 16 at 7:00 PM.

TOGETHER IN PRAYER - Pray with the LWML every Monday at noon!
