BETHANY CIRCLES—Lutheran Women In Mission -LWML: At Bethany, these three names are synonymous . They are the women of the congregation who do so many things for Bethany and for the wider world. Bethany Circles will be cohosting the Kansas Fall LWML Rally with the LWML of Faith/Derby and Grace/El Dorado. The rally will be at Faith Lutheran –Derby on Saturday, October, 7, 2017.A planning meeting was held on August 26, so details will be forthcoming along with requests for help.
 
LWML will still be collecting items for our health, school, sewing kits and layette through September, If you would like to make donations, please place them in the metal tub in the narthex or take them to the quilting room on Tuesday or Saturday mornings. We invite all the women of the congregation to join us on Sept 19 at 6:00 p.m. for our regular monthly meeting. We normally meet at Mary Morton’s home, but we will meet at church to finish putting all our kits together for Lutheran World Relief (LWR). Join us on Sunday, October 1 (LWML Sunday) as we give thanks to God for His grace and the opportunity to serve.
 
Lastly, we will be loading a semi-trailer (or more) at Risen Savior / Wichita with all the kits and quilts for LWF that have been made by many Lutheran church’s LWML chapters in Kansas ( and maybe some from Oklahoma). If you want practice in packing and loading, join in the fun. More details will be forthcoming. LWR SCHOOL KITS: School Supplies for Lutheran World Relief. We are collecting school supplies for the school kits we are assembling for Lutheran World Relief. Here is a list of what we need: *Pencils (No. 2 *Ball point pens *Erasers (usually pink) *Scissors (blunt tipped) *Rulers (with both inches & centimeters) *Crayons (24 count) *Notebooks (spiral) *Pencil Sharpeners
 
All women members of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod are members of the LWML, and can join in those activities which they choose. The LWML is a diverse group with women of all ages, skills, and interests. The one unifying factor for all members is their joy in serving: their Lord, their congregation, their community, their world. In fact, the motto of the LWML is “Serve the Lord with Gladness”. As members of the LWML, we come together to assist one another in our relationship with God; and we work to build each other up so we can use our God-given gifts in ministry to the people of the world. At Bethany, we meet on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m. (check the bulletin and / or calendar) for Bible study and discussion.
 
The quilting group meets each Tuesday morning at 10:00 a.m. and on Saturday at 9:00 a.m. in the last room of the west wing. If you have never seen a quilting factory, mosey on down to the quilting room. They would love to show you what they do. So far in 2017 they have made approx. 100 quilts and 100 school kits for Lutheran World Relief. We also make baby layettes , sewing and health kits. These are sent all over the world wherever there is a need.
