The Women of Osseo Lutheran Church have four general meetings a year.
They meet the first Wednesday of the month in February (Mug & Muffin), April (Salad Luncheon), and December (Christmas buffet). In addition there is a picnic in June and a bazaar in September/October.
Currently there are two circles that meet for Bible study at the church on the third Wednesday of the month at 1 p.m. using "The Gather". The women have a quilting group meeting twice a month on Tuesdays. They also provide quilts, school kits, health kits, layettes, and sewing kits for Lutheran World Relief.
Quilters meet the second and fourth Tuesdays, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 PM in the quilting room. If you plan to stay through the lunch hour, please bring your own lunch. All ladies are welcome to join in the fellowship of this special ministry.
If you know of a need within our community for a warm, homemade-with-love quilt, please contact the church office at 715-597-3213
Circle Bible study groups meet the 3rd Wednesday of the month, at 1:00 PM in the Family Room.

Education is important for any community, especially where poverty or disaster has limited the options for young people to reach their potential. School kits contain essential supplies to help children - and in some case, adults - continue learning despite the hardships they face. And learning leads to a better life for them, their families, and their communities.
