Children’s Christmas Service program is today at the 11:00 service.

This isn’t a “trivial pursuit”. It’s a worthy cause! Do you know stuff about things? Come show off your worthless trivia knowledge! The National Youth Gathering participants are hosting a trivia night January 13th to raise funds for the 2019 National Youth Gathering. Come compete for the prestigious title of: Champion of People who “Noah” few things. Cost is $100 per table (team) of eight (only $12.50 per person), and we have room for 12 tables/teams. Bring your own food, drink, and some friends for a great time. Whether you know a little bit about a lot of things or a lot about a little, come have some fun with us! We are looking to pre-register the tables by early December so we can prepare the event through the busy holiday season. Pick a team captain and contact Thomas W to reserve your table with pre-payment. Any questions contact Matt & Janelle W or Jeff & DeAnn B.

The Board of Human Care wishes to say THANK YOU to all those who participated in our HOPE Gift Market. This year the total donated was $14,304!!! Praise God!

St. Paul Lutheran Preschool along with wonderful teachers, kind children, and thoughtful parents are looking for a teacher’s assistant for our 4-and-5-year old class. The position starts on January 4th and continues until May 25th. Hours for this position are M, T, Th, and F from 8:15 am to 12:45 p.m. No working weekends or nights plus get Spring Break off with pay. We will help you with the training you need to be qualified.

FAMILY SERVICE   ~ Our Christmas Luncheon will be in the Fellowship Hall on Thursday, Dec. 14 beginning at noon. All women of the congregation are invited to attend. No need to bring food, it will all be provided. We will play Jesus Bingo, so please bring a wrapped $5 bingo prize.  If you are able to attend, please contact Geri S or Marilyn H by Dec.10.

You got Gifts? We got wrap!  As the busyness of the Christmas season gears up the dreadful task of wrapping all those presents can seem like a never-ending battle. If you find yourself needing some extra help this year with the task of making your presents cheerful and bright, let the participants of the 2019 National Youth Gathering help out!  We will be holding a Gift Wrapping Fundraiser on Saturday, December 16th from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM.   This FREEWILL DONATION fundraiser will help the participants raise funds to attend the largest youth gathering in the LCMS in Minneapolis, MN in 2019.  Gift wrapping will include: the gift wrap, 2 bows and gift tag.

There are multiple ways to get your gifts wrapped:

1) Drop them off at the church and pick-up later that day (by 4:00 PM).

2) Drop them off at the church and pick up on Sunday.

3) Bring them in, let us wrap and you enjoy some snacks and a Christmas movie while you wait!

4) Don’t want to come to the church? Call the week of the event and set up delivery- we pick them up in the morning from your house and deliver them later that day!

Join us for supper! The youth attending the National Youth Gathering will be hosting the next Advent meal at 5:45 pm on December 13. They will be serving spaghetti with sides.
