Delphos Wesleyan Women met Thursday at the home of June and Joe Rode.
The women discussed changing the women’s ministry name to Hearts for Christ.
The group planned to hold a Happy Meal, Happy Deal spaghetti supper in February along with a “Let’s Make a Deal” event. The group will also put together a teacher’s survival kit for high school teachers.
The district is supporting a new organization called “7 Baskets.” The women’s group will decorate a Christian tree with gloves, hats and socks for children in the “7 Baskets” ministry.
The group continues collecting soup labels, pop tabs and empty pill bottles.
Kathy Gengler shared a devotional referring to the song “Just as I am.” “God knows and accepts us and will fulfill our needs. We always have something to offer God.”
Willi Richardson led the prayer.
A thank you card was read from St. Peter Lutheran Church thanking the women for their donation to the Lutheran church’s summer breakfast program.
Josie Kent paid $1 for not wearing slippers. Others wore regular slippers and ones with bumble bees, puppies, dogs and animal paw prints. At the October meeting, members are to wear hats or pay a fine.
The ladies closed the meeting with a purse auction. Gengler auctioned 22 purses with the lowest bidder paying $2 and the highest $14.75. Purse contents were varied with scarves, dish towels, knick knacks, soup, snacks, books and even a loaf of bread. The money raised will go toward the women’s retreat in March.
Women attending the meeting included Kathy Gengler, Madeline Gengler, Linda McNeil, June Rode, Kent, Christy Hammond, Bev Cross-McNeal, Phyllis Sterling, Donna Derner, Heather Gengler, Willi Richardson, Jonna McNeil and Ahranti Secession.
The Hearts for Christ ladies will meet at 6:30 p.m. the third Thursday of each month.
