On October 26, 2022, 20 members of Grace Lutheran and First Lutheran, Pipestone served the evening meal at The Banquet (west location) in Sioux Falls, SD. We traveled by school bus leaving from Pipestone at 4pm and returning at 9pm. Preparations started at 5 with serving from 6-7:30 and cleanup afterwards. The Grace Quilters donated 14 quilts which were handed out to adults and children. All attendees were very thankful for the food, our service and conversations, and the beautiful quilts. For church members, it was a special opportunity to serve and care for others.
