GOD’S WORK. OUR HANDS – 2022: We held a big project on Sunday, August 11, meeting for lunch at Zion Lutheran in Valley City at 12:30 pm. Our project this year was the filling of school backpacks with brand new school supplies for Lutheran World Relief. The goal was 500 backpacks!! We met our goal!! Many thanks to everyone who donated and stuffed backpacks. Our backpacks will be on their way to LWR in October.
OUTREACH COMMITTEE EVENTS 2021: We filled 65 school backpacks for Lutheran World Relief again this July. Several members took advantage of the option to have the shopping done for them for $9 a bag donation. We again loaded up the semi at Jerusalem Lutheran in Seville. It is always a wonderful day to see that huge truck loaded.
PLUM PARK CLEAN UP AND PICNIC 2021: Right after worship on Sunday, July 25, we took part in a local clean up project at Plum Creek Park followed by a picnic lunch back at church. Eighteen hardy souls cleaned and lunched. Service and Fellowship rolled into one event!!
LUTHERAN WORLD RELIEF PUT OUT A CALL FOR PERSONAL CARE KITS for those affected by natural disaster and conflicts around the world. With our budgeted Outreach funds and a donation from Thrivent through Alicia Clark, the committee purchased the items needed for each kit and we enjoyed an after-church assembly gathering in August, with each receiving a great “payday.” Our 100 Care Kits were shipped to LWR along with our backpacks in October, 2021.
EASTER BASKET PROJECT 2021 REPLACED OUR IN-PERSON EASTER EGG HUNT: Check out our great Easter Basket project under Outreach. We are still enjoying Easter but in a social distance manner by providing Easter baskets for special kids in the Medina County area.
We hope to return to our Easter Egg hunt next year. Check out this space!!!!

OUR ANNUAL LADIES’ SALAD SUPPER was held on Monday, September 23, 2019, at the church. Some family and friends joined us for a fun evening of delicious salads and desserts as well as catching up with everyone’s busy lives.
Secret Sisters were revealed. As a Secret Sister you are asked to remember your sister throughout the year with encouraging notes and cards, and small gifts on birthdays and Christmas. Notes and gifts can be left on the shelf above the mailboxes in the entry. It is a fun way to get to know fellow members better. We all filled out our lists of “likes” for the drawing of new Secret Sisters for the coming year.
OUR SECOND ANNUAL EASTER EGG HUNT on Saturday, April 6, drew a great crowd. We had about 45 kids, each with parents and grandparents in tow. Many thanks to all who helped fill 1200 eggs, provided snacks and took beautiful Bunny photos.
