Sunday was a busy day at both churches  in Lustre. Sunday morning, the Lustre Christian High School choir, under the direction of Michael Butler, presented the special music at the EMB Church.  After the services, they enjoyed a potluck dinner. That evening, the EMB Church held their annual business meeting, led by church moderator, Karl Waitschies. Elections were held, church and missions budgets discussed and other business taken care of. Midway through the meeting, pie and coffee  were served, with accepted donations, as a fundraiser for the young people’s group that is raising finances to attend Acquire the Fire in Billings in December.

A rather unusual bridal shower was held Sunday afternoon, Nov. 10, at the  MB Church. The money shower, minus the bride- elect, Michaelene Sweeney, who, due to complications at the Canadian border, was unable to attend, was held via Skyping on an Apple iPod. Sweeney shared how she and her husband-to-be, James Fransen of Moose Jaw, Sask., Canada, met, and of her work at Joe’s Place. Special guests included the bride’s mother, Karyl Rauch; grandmother, Norma Rauch; sister, Geneva Rauch; and aunts, Hulda Schmidt and Ruth Rauch. The couple plans to be married Dec. 7.
