The St. John Lutheran Women’s Guild met January 13 at the home of Dotty Cahill. President Brenda Elliott presided. Brenda led the topic, “How Great thou Art” from the LWML Quarterly.
Roll Call, “One thing you have decided to do in the New Year to further your faith” was answered by four members. Due to the absence of the secretary and treasurer, there were no reports. Fellowship chairman Regina Vogt reminded members of the quarterly voters meeting on January 17 after church.
