Our Saviour's Lutheran Church Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America are actively involved in a number of mission opportunities throughout the year. An example of one of these service projects occurs every May when the church honors graduating seniors of the congregation at our regular morning services. As part of the observance, quilts are presented to the seniors by WELCA on behalf of the congregation. Several women of the congregation lovingly craft the quilts and assisted with the presentation. To the right is the portion of the service from 2014 where the quilts were blessed and given to the seniors.
The team who crafted the quilts included: Lucille Fokken, Bev Larson, Mark Fokken, Marilyn Randgaard, Jean Kvols, Linda Richter, Menno Fokken, Celina Fokken, Venus Shackelton, Kay Eilers, Delores Haugen, and Doris Meyers.
To the left is the label that was stitched to the back of each quilt.
Answering Christ's call to mission...
WELCA is very active in the ministry of hospitality and fellowship. They serve at all funerals and special events in the church. The women of OSL embody the essence of service to others. Often, OSL is the site of funerals and weddings of those who are not members, but are invited in the spirit of Christ to have their events in our church home.
