Women of Hope May 2012

Contacts: Deb S. and Irene K.

  • THANK YOU! to the women who attended the General Meeting on March 28, during the Soup Supper. At the meeting, the group decided how to disburse some of the treasury funds. The group voted on spending money related to the 2012 Synodical Women’s Organization Spring Convention: paying the registration fee for our delegate; offering scholarships to other Women of Hope attending the Convention; and our group’s Convention offering. Additional funds were donated to the Youth; the Love Fund; the women of Ifunda, Tanzania; and the HOP General Fund for some in-house property expenses. Other items discussed related to new tablecloths for the Fellowship Hall (research is underway about the cost), possible procedural changes for the 2013 Lenten Soup Suppers, and new officers. God bless you for sharing your time and thoughts.
  • GATHERED BY GOD is the Lutheran Woman Today Bible Study for 2012-2013. The theme verse for the study is “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among you” {Matthew 18:20}. On Saturday 9/22/12, a Bible Study preparation session will be held, 8:30 am-2:30 pm. The host church for the event is Gloria Dei Lutheran Church (700 Snelling Ave S, St Paul; 651-699-1378). Audrey West, PhD, is the author of the study, which leads us through 9 sessions of why Christians gather: to Learn, for Life, to be Empowered, for Rest, for Community, for Shelter, to Share a Story, to be Sent, and also where we as Christians gather. Rev. Dr Jules Erickson, Senior Pastor of All Saints Lutheran Church in Cottage Grove, is the presenter and Bible Study leader on 9/22/12. The $13 fee includes registration, speaker, and lunch; bring your Bible and a notebook. Child care is available. Registration forms are at the Welcome Center.
