Miami Zone Fall Fest
September 9, 2017
Our Zone Fall Fest was held on September 9, 2017, at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Fairland, OK. A total of 46 people were in attendance which included 42 ladies and 4 Pastors. Pastor Leo Schroeder, St. Paul, Fairland, led our opening and closing devotions. Pastor Dwight Moeller, Bethlehem, Adair, was our Bible study leader. We voted in Amy Moeller, as Vice President, Joan Anderson, as Secretary and Debbie Lindemeier, as PR, to replace these positions that had been vacated.
Dianna Just was our District Representative and our mission speaker. She showed the National Mission Grant video and used a power point to share pictures and information about her Alaska Mission for Christ trip to Ninilchik, Alaska. This was her fourth trip to help put on VBS. She will be going back again in June 2018.
Amy Moeller was our zone delegate for the National Convention in Albuquerque. She gave a recap of her experience and provided important information from the convention.
Gifts of the Heart collection was for the Miami Community Crisis Center. We collected many school supplies, canned foods, paper products and cleaning supplies.
Since Fall Fest a number of kits have been prepared and sent to Lutheran World Relief and other organizations. The societies are finishing up 2017 with mite box Sundays, bake sale fundraisers, sewing projects and collections. Thrivent Action Teams help to make our money go farther. ~Anita Gard, Miami Zone President
