The Women's Missionary Society of St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Preston, Ontario was organized on February 16, 1912. The purpose of the organization was to teach members about the church's missionary work, and to provide financial assistance.

Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada is one of five synods of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, consisting of more than 200 member congregations and 78,000 baptized members. The territory of the Eastern Synod runs from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario to Halifax, Nova Scotia.

In July 1861 the Canada Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Canada was organized by the former Canadian Conference of the Pittsburgh Synod. In 1867 the Canada Synod helped organize the General Council. In 1908 the Central Canada Synod organized as a result of English activity of the General Council. In 1918 both synods became part of the United Lutheran Church in America. In 1925 the Canada Synod and the Central Canada Synod merged, retaining the name Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Canada. In 1962 the Canada Synod reorganized as the Eastern Canada Synod of the Lutheran Church in America, comprised of the provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, Quebec and most of Ontario. In 1985 the Eastern Canada Synod withdrew from the Lutheran Church in America to join with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Canada to form the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. In 1986 the new church began to function officially, retaining its membership in the Lutheran Council in Canada.

Preston, Aug. 28, 1912

The monthly meeting of the Women's Missionary Society was held this afternoon at the home of Mrs. Helwig. The President opened the meeting with prayer. The minutes of the last meeting were read and adopted. The roll was then called.

The pamphlet containing an article from "The Lutheran Mission Worker" was then discussed.

The subject "How can we make our meetings more instructive" was then taken up.

It was decided to postpone the talk on Home Mission work until the next meeting when the members would have copies of the "Mission Worker," which comes out the first week in Sept. and is devoted entirely to Home Mission Work.

Miss Helwig was proposed and accepted as a member of the Society.

A hearty vote of thanks was tendered Mrs. Helwig for her hospitality.

An invitation from Mrs. Driever to meet at her home in Sept. was gladly

L. Martin,

Sec.
