December ’22 NEWSLETTER

Tuesday, December 6th meeting – 6:30 pm. Bring a pair of Christmas Socks for a fun exchange. Rachel will demo a “Folded Star” (no sewing!) so bring 4 strips of fabric, each measuring 4”x14”(2 the same) perhaps Christmas theme or fabrics of your choosing.
We will also finalize plans for our Advent Supper on Wednesday, December 14th – 5pm.

A Thrivent Grant will be used to purchase the groceries for the meal.

Menu: Soup Supper, with 3 soups to choose from, rolls, fresh veggies & desserts. Proceeds from the dinner will be used to make Layette Kits for Orphan Grain Train. And Look for Items from our Christmas Bazaar that will be available for you to win with the purchase of a $.50 ticket! Drop 1 ticket or as-many-as-you-like in a cup beside the item/items you would like. Quick drawing for the winners immediately following the Advent service.
Friday, 16th is our monthly sew day. We will decide at the 12/6 meeting how we want to
celebrate…perhaps a brunch at the Friendship House? Other thoughts? We will also
brainstorm ideas for the coming year!

SUNDAY MORNING COFFEE $$:

Proceeds thru the 1st quarter of 2023 will go towards developing a bus route so more Wamego area kids can attend St. John’s Lutheran school in Alma. The school principal, Mr. Harmon Butler is working to develop an account specifically for this project. Thanks for your willingness to help out!  Brett Bruning: “In my opinion there is no more important time in our nation’s history for children to receive a Christ centered education at an LCMS school. These funds will make this possible for more children in Wamego and the surrounding area.” For more information contact Brett
