DIAPER COLLECTION EXTENDED - to July 11. The SOTC Women’s League is sponsoring this diaper collection. You are invited to bring cloth diapers or disposable diapers to church at any time and put them in the Narthex. The cloth diapers will be given to the Council of Lutheran Women’s Operation Layette. They give cloth diapers because many of women who receive their layettes do not have money to purchase more diapers, and the cloth diapers can be reused after washing. The disposable diapers will be given to the AAA Pregnancy Center.
Meetings are held on the second Saturday of the month, with coffee at 9:30 a.m. and the meeting starting at 10 a.m. The meetings will resume on Saturday, September 11.
The LWML Michigan District is rolling out a new program designed to offer CONNECTION in a time when people are feeling UNconnected.
This new Heart to Heart Sister Zoom Hang-out is a place for women of different cultures and backgrounds in the Michigan District LCMS to come together to share their faith journey while hearing other women share their story and be lifted up by prayer and devotion time. If you know of someone you would like to invite or are interested in joining yourself please contact Nancy Reeves to be added to the Zoom call at firstname.lastname@example.org
Events will be held the second Thursday of the month at 7 p.m.

The Women’s League of Shadow of the Cross Lutheran Church is a society that is an integral part of the International Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML). The organization’s motto is from Psalm 100:2, “Serve the Lord with Gladness.”
We focus on affirming each woman’s relationship with Christ, encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in mission ministries and to support global missions. All confirmed women of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod are members.
Our group here at Shadow of the Cross belongs to the Wayne Oak Hills LWML Zone and the Council of Lutheran Women of Southeastern Michigan. General membership meetings are held at 9 a.m. on the second Sunday of each month, beginning in September and ending in May (except December). We support many different outreaches and projects, including international, national, and local charities through such activities as collecting mites, conducting fundraisers, and assembling in-gathering items.
The SOTC Women’s League also serves our own congregation with special projects and programs, providing bereavement meals, and sponsoring special seasonal meals.
