Senior Counselor Rev. Dr. Robert Roegner agreed to shave off his beard during the January 2017 LWML Board meeting if $2,500 or more was raised for Mite Offerings. Giving thanks to God for the generous response from Board of Directors members and friends from around the country, over $8,900 was raised for the 2015-2017 Mission Goal.
Board members also brought Gifts from the Heart (material items given to Christian mission service organizations) for Christian Friends of New Americans.This is a Recognized Service Organization of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod which offers a range of programs and services for New Americans. Two hundred personal hygiene items and $825 in cash and gift cards were collected.
