Women of Trinity/LWML

January 2020

The LWML Women of Trinity quarterly meeting was called to order by President Betty Reinke on January 18, 2021 at 7:00 PM.

Opening Devotion and Prayer were presented by Pastor O’Neill.

The Mite Box offering was collected and the LWML Pledge was recited.

Roll Call: Altar Circle – 3; Anna Circle – 1 and Sarah Circle – 2, with guest – Pastor O’Neill.

The secretary minutes from the October 2020 meeting were read and approved with one correction. The treasurer’s report was presented in written form and was approved.

Old Business: Beth Mueller has accepted the position of Treasurer. Janice made a motion to accept Beth as Treasurer, Linda seconded the motion and the motion passed. Officers now are listed as: President – Betty Reinke, Vice-President – Janice Hinders, Secretary – Marlyce Thompson, Human Care – Linda Raddatz and Treasurer – Beth Mueller. Still needed is a Christian Life chairman. Some of the duties for this position include: be a representative at the Zone Meetings and the conventions, plus planning a program for the quarterly meetings locally.

New Business: Ushers are needed for the January 24th Worship Service. Betty and Linda volunteered to greet people and hand out bulletins. Ash Wednesday is February 17th and we will not be serving any meals this year prior to the Lenten Worship Services due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 125th Anniversary for our Church will be held on September 11-12, 2021. The anniversary committee would like some input regarding souvenir items for this event. Some suggestions are a stainless steel tumbler, ornament, key rings and money clip.

The next Executive Board meeting will be on Sunday, March 7th. The scheduling for the Appleton Zone Rally is unsure at this time. We are hoping to have a Confirmand/Graduate Recognition brunch this Spring.

Mission Project: Elda Schmidt was recognized for meeting her goal of crocheting 1,000 stocking caps during 2020. Marion Johnson has made 87 pillow case dresses. The quilters donated 17 quilts to the Salvation Army, 36 quilts to Dakota Boys/Girls Ranch, and 6 quilts for our 2020 graduates. Marion is in need of rick-rack, bias tape and small buttons for her dresses.

The Meeting was adjourned. Thank you to Anna Circle for serving.

Christian Life: Pastor O’Neill led us in a devotion using the classic Psalms.

Closed with the Lord’s Prayer.
