Women of Our Savior LWML – Manchester September 2019

Twice a year the Women of Our Savior LWML make visits to our Church Family Shut Ins.  Our Christian Growth Committee prepares a devotion and snack baskets or plates to us on the visits.  The ladies go out in twos or threes to visit, do the devotion and leave the snacks with the member. The visits are about a half hour and very enjoyable by all.  The LWML then holds a regular meeting and share highlight of our visits with each other. We had six home visits in September.

6 baskets ready to go out
