HEARTNERS (Ladies Aid)

Heartners is usually held on the second Thursday
of the month at 10:00am in the Fellowship Hall.

Contact Person: Michelle Kuehl (as of April 2017)


Some of the awesome ladies of Heartners (2014)

Why are we called Heartners?

At a previous Ladies Aid meeting, it was decided that the new name for the ladies group would be "Heartners". At that meeting, an excerpt entitled "Howdy, Heartner" was read from the book "Squeeze the Moment" by Karen O'Connor. Karen and a friend call themselves "heartners", which is their code word for "partners of the heart". "Heartner" to them means that "they will support one another at work, at home and in the community with ongoing prayer, a listening ear, a heart of love, advice when solicited and silence when it's not".

Heartners Sweatshirts

Heartners sweatshirts with the Heartners logo and St. Matthew on them are available for purchase.

Contact the church office at (608) 378-3233 if you would like more information or if you would like to purchase a Heartners sweatshirt.

Heartners 'FUN'draising Activities

Heartners are involved in many FUNdraising Activities. A few of those activities include:

With the fruits of their labor, the women of Heartners were able to donate $6,000.00 towards the purchase of an industrial-size dishwasher for the kitchen. Other items they have raised money for are glass display cases in the narthex for historical items from our church history, new communion tray tables for the sanctuary, altar flower stands for our Christmas and Easter flower displays, cookbooks, missions and the list goes on..

The women also redecorated the Nursery with a fresh coat of paint, colorful decals on the wall and benches for storage and sitting.

From the March 2018 St. Matthew Church Newsletter:

Definition of a missionary... a person sent by a church into an area to carry on evangelism, or other activities, such as educational or hospital work.

Supporting a mission or individual missionary is important because it is part of God's plan to bring new believers, from all corners of the world, to the knowledge of Christ as our Savior. Jesus, himself a teacher during his earthly ministry, also commanded his apostles to never stop preaching and teaching the good news that Jesus is the Christ.

Heartners has decided to support two LCMS missionaries in 2018 (there are over 100 to choose from).

Following are brief biographies of the missionaries:

Sarah Kanoy is a missionary in East Africa, based in Kenya. She is a registered nurse, providing health and hygiene education to the local people in their communities, homes, schools, and churches.

During her interactions with these individuals, she shares the Good News of Jesus Christ and helps to connect people to their local Lutheran church. She also works with and supports the Mercy Medical Teams that serve East Africa.

Rev. Duane and Elizabeth Messsner serve as missionaries in Belize (formerly British Honduras, on the east coast of Central America). In this role, Duane's objective is to plant the very first Lutheran church in that country. He also supports LCMS human care and mercy projects in the country.

Duane and Elizabeth have four children - Marcy, Maverick, Ayana, and Abigail.

What can we do to help?

Heartners plans to pledge $500 to each missionary in 2018. Since many missions are 100% supported by donations, the ladies of Heartners are issuing a challenge to the congregation to match the funds! The first door offering will follow the service on Sunday, March 28, 2018.

Plans are for a display to be set up in the narthex, so the congregation can learn more about each missionary and the work they do.

"Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples!" 1 Chronicles 16:24
