Yes, we have a quilting group at Divine Shepherd Lutheran Church and we would invite everyone to join us on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. We are an extension of the LWML (Lutheran Women's Mission League) at our church and ouro opurpose is to make quilts for the Orphan Grain Train, which distributes these quilts overseas to be used as bed coverings, wall dividers, and even possibly floor coverings. We use donated material and make the quilts nice but not beautiful, as the beautiful ones are confiscated and sold on the black market!
Our other purpose is to make a quilt top for each confirmand every year. These are nicer quilts and incorporate Christian symbols, a Bible verse for the confirmand, and some personal information. We display these quilts on confirmation day and for a few Sundays folowing and hthen they are put away until the confirmand graduates from high school. At that time, we finish the quilt and present the quilt to the senior. We hope that wherever they go after that, the student is covered with a quilt from Divine Shepherd Lutheran Church to remind him of God's love through the Christian symbols and his/her confirmation verse.
You do not have to be a good seamstress or quilter to join us!
We need people to cut out squares with the help of our tools and even ironers! This is not a serious group by any means, either. We have a lot of fun and love the idea of creating things whether for a mission quilt, or for our students! So, come and join us any Wednesday! Need more information? Talk to Leota Quam, Loretta Rohrbauck, Janell McKinstry, Bev Johnson, Kelly Hanson or Connie Rathert!!
We would love it if you could join us for practice every Monday at 6:30pm. You don’t need to know how to read music, we’ll help you with that.
We have new choir risers (thanks to Mike) and it will be so wonderful to fill them with singers. Below is a list of other events besides Monday rehearsals.
Ten of the 11 ringers will be returning again this year to pick up their chimes on Monday, September 10th at 5:30.
In looking at my notes, the chimes were donated by Pastor Schwan several years ago and we began using them in 2011.
Ringers who have played since the beginning are Leota Quam, Cheryl Brandt, Vonda Sturzenbecher, Diann Dobbs, Judy Uecker, Randy Wombold, and Rick Rathert. Kathy Roling also played then and has since become our permanent sub!! Over the past couple of years, Brenda Price, LeAnne Dyer, and Kathy Swan have joined us. Kayla Thompson played the past few years and opted to drop out this year, her senior year in high school, and we will miss her young enthusiasm!! Madison Dyer will be stepping in and we welcome her youth as well!Music choices this year will include:
As usual, we don’t have a schedule of Sundays we will play, as it all depends on what Sunday all the ringers (and the director) will be here. But, I’m blessed to have these dedicated ringers and we look forward to praising God with our music!

Standing Out in the Life Field: How to Be a Life-Minded Congregation and Community
Why are Lutherans For Life?
What distinctive voice can we bring to cultural conversations about life issues? How is the sanctity of human life connected directly to the Gospel of Jesus Christ? What can we do to bring the joy and hope of God's "Yes!" to life-or-death situations? We'll explore finding motivation, getting education, and taking action to change hearts and save lives.
