An overcast yet calm day in Port Lincoln greeted Lutherans from Ceduna, Yaninee and Cowell to last Sunday's 'Our Saviour's' Lutheran Church morning service, followed by the 53rd Rally of Eyre Peninsula Zone Lutheran Women of South Australia/Northern Territory.
Port Lincoln Guild president Lorna Dutschke welcomed all in attendance and made special mention of the presence of state president Grace Kroehn from Springton.
Guest speakers were the principal of Navigator College Steve Jude and Crossways Lutheran School principal Tony Peters, who spoke about their journey to get to where they are today, as well as keeping the gathering informed of their school's progress.
The morning and afternoon offering went to each school respectively.
The Lutheran Tract Mission was also represented at the rally by Andrew Waldhuter, who brought with him various tracts for people to take home.
After enjoying lunch and catching up with old friends and making new ones, Pastor Phil Joppich of Port Lincoln led a Bible study.
Ms Kroehn brought greetings from the state executive and filled the group in on what has been happening at a state level.
Furthermore, she had photos of various gatherings over the past year which showed there was still plenty of life in women's fellowships.
Following a closing devotion by Port Lincoln and the singing of 'May the feet of God walk with you' the rally came to a close.
Port Lincoln ladies provided afternoon tea to end an enjoyable day of worship and fellowship.
Tumby Bay is expected to host next year's rally on the first Sunday in March.
