2015 Ladies Aid Report
Pilgrim Lutheran Ladies Aid Society is a member of Iowa District West, Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, Sac City Zone. Zone members rotate hosting the Spring and Fall Rallies. We meet the first Wednesday of each month in the church fellowship hall. Any lady belonging to the congregation may join the society. Women who are not communicant members of the church may be enrolled as non-voting associate members. Guests are always welcome. We have Prayer Partners that change each year, and one does not have to be a member of the society to be a prayer partner.
At our monthly meetings we have devotions, a lesson or topic, business meeting, the birthday song for members having birthdays that month, closing prayer, and lunch. In July, we meet for a morning meeting and sing-along. In December, we host a Christmas luncheon and party for members and guests.
Cover Girls began quilting in January and finished 123 quilts, with 118 being sent to Lutheran World Relief, 3 donated to the Camp Okoboji Quilt Auction, and 2 saved for future donations. Our other mission projects were assembling School Kits and Personal Care Kits for Lutheran World Relief. Several members also sewed book bags for Friends of the Library to be given to new parents.
February 4th, we held the birthday party at Shady Oaks Care Center. February 23rd we hosted the Lenten Luncheon. In April, we held the LWML Prayer Service. June 3rd we hosted a Guest Day for ladies from area Lutheran churches with a presentation by Megan Snyder on her experiences on a recent mission trip to Nicaragua. An LWML Awareness Fair was held September 26th to introduce ladies of our congregation to what LWML does as a part of our congregation, the Sac City Zone, and Iowa District West. LWML Sunday was observed October 4th. At our December meeting, a motion was passed to give $425 to various mission projects.
We have 16 active members and 3 honorary members. Three members had perfect attendance during 2015.
