  •     Our Savior’s LWML Afternoon Guild met on Thursday, June 5th.  Laurain Jurchen welcomed all.  Table grace was sung followed by birthday greetings in song to Patsy Abrahamson, Maxine Wagner and Laurain Jurchen.  Other birthdays recognized were Doris Volker, Lyla Newhouse, Doris Reitmeier and LaVonne Hinkley.  All enjoyed a time of Christian Fellowship and a dessert luncheon served by the hostesses Pearl Radi and Colene DeBoer   
        The League Pledge was recited followed by the Bible Study IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND led by Laurain Jurchen.  All explored scripture on what it means to live securely “in the palm of His hand” closing with prayer and the hymn Lord, Take My Hand and Lead Me.   
        The Opening Devotion “Forward into God’s Future” was given by Judy Ellingson followed by prayer.  Colene DeBoer shared a mission letter from Carol Helter, missionary in Hong Kong.  Hymns were sung accompanied by Naomi Johnshoy during the gathering of MITES.   
        Judy Ellingson, Human Care Chairperson, reported on the guild and congregational mission projects and thanked all for their willing service, donations and financial support.  Upcoming projects are June (Yarn for Grannies) and July (Care-N-Share, donate cash).
