Say good afternoon to the ladies of our Seminary Guild! Normally, any pictures taken at these meetings are from the back of the room, but today we had the opportunity to take one from the front. These faithful women serve our seminarians, deaconess students, and their spouses and families in very personal, meaningful ways.
Some of their ongoing projects include support of the Food and Clothing Co-op, providing snacks to the students during final weeks and birthday treats for the single students on their birthdays, making t-shirts and booties for babies born to our married students throughout the year, and the annual Legacy Project. They also support a larger project that benefits the students each year; most recently, this project was to purchase new furniture for Student Services.
Today marked the second to last of their meetings for the academic year. The final meeting is a Spring Luncheon on April 9, though their work will continue through the end of the year and into graduation, when they host additional receptions and give gifts to the wives of each graduate and to the deaconess graduates.
