December RS Meeting--Let Him In Christmas Dinner

This December's meeting will be special. 

We are having a Christmas program focused on Christ, and the figures of the nativity. 

We will have a wonderful dinner and musical program that you are sure to enjoy.

We encourage you to bring a friend to this meeting. It will be welcoming to all, and we hope you will join us! 

"We are not asking everyone to do everything. We are simply asking all members to pray, knowing that if every member, young and old, will reach out to just “one” between now and Christmas, millions will feel the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. And what a wonderful gift to the Savior." 
--Elder M. Russell Ballard 

Full talk here:

November RS Meeting Recap

This was quite the activity!!

Lots of planning and willing sisters stepped up.

We had hundreds of fabric donated, and had high expectations. In the end, we didn't make as many as we thought, but this activity was still a success.

Sisters working side by side in service!!

We started the night off right.

Jenni set the spirit of the meeting by her beautiful solo, "Where can I turn for peace?" She is so talented and willing to share so we could all benefit.

Next we heard a powerful message from Gretchen, as she recalled an experience with a friend who lost a child and how she helped her friend overcome that hard trial.

Then we got started with making memorial blankets for the mothers who lost their babies in the Labor and Delivery department of the hospital.

We were all set up for some serious sewing!!

We had thank you notes for our donors!

We printed directions and had stickers for different people/jobs/stations.

Then we put directions at each station.

Then we had tags printed to put on the blankets.

And a small "Families can be together forever" iron on tag.

Lots of white trim

And fabric! 

 Childcare room all set up!

 Lots of helping hands!

And pies...comfort food!!! ;-)

Thanks everyone for all the help! 

They turned out great!
