 November 2015 Calendar


Thanksgiving Service

The WNALC is busy planning the Thanksgiving service.  This year we will have just 1 service held on Wednesday evening, November 25 at 7:15.  This service will be a Thankoffering service so we ask that you bring your thankoffering boxes and/or a non-perishable food item for the food pantry.  These items will be placed on the Altar.  This service will be led by the women of our church.

Christmas Families

Please sign up to give a gift(s) for a member of this year’s Christmas families sponsored by Lutheran Social Services. The sign up poster board is in the narthex; it will give you the details. The last day to sign up for gifts is Sunday, November 22. Please bring gifts to church from November 8 through November 29 and place gifts at the east end of the fellowship hall. Place your wrapped gift in the basket with your family number or near the basket. Be sure to clearly mark your gift with the family number and the appropriate information such as boy age 10.

Another way you can help is by donating money. To do this, mark “other” on your church envelope, write in “Christmas Family” and the amount or place money in the Helping Hands box by the sign up board. This money is used to buy one Bible per family and perishable food items.

Kids Club / Senior Friend Advent Celebration

Kids Club will meet November 20 and we invite the senior friends to join us for an Advent Celebration here at the church at 6:00 p.m., dinner will be provided.

Please Be A Part of Our Hanging of the Greens

We would love to have help preparing for our Hanging of the Greens service. This service is such a beautiful tradition loved by many. However, it can be a lot of work unless we have many hands. There are many ways to help – big and small. If you can give of your time and talents, please contact one of the members listed below:

Food: Davonna Gynn

Decor & set up for after-service refreshments: Kim Benne

Clean up: Melanie Crapser

Choir: Bev Easterhaus

Decorating of the church: Melanie Crapser & Judy Lawrence

We will be decorating the church on Friday, December 4, beginning at 10 am. This is a fun time of decorating, fellowship, and lunch! Join us if you can and bring a carry-in item to share!

Hanging of the Greens Choir

Choir members and singers, we need you to help us sing on December 6th at 6 pm for the Hanging of the Greens. Practices are on three Saturdays, November 21, 28, and December 5 at 9 am. Hopefully you can come at least twice. We are using our red “All is Well” book, but we are only singing two numbers from the book, plus one or two hymns. You can get your book and CD after November 15 from me.  Youth and adults are all welcome and encouraged to help us. Bev Easterhaus

New Testament Bibles

In the back of the sanctuary, fellowship hall and in the narthex are paperback editions of the New Testament. Please take one and keep it if you need it, or give it to someone you think may want it – a neighbor, friend, co-worker, or even a stranger. This would be an easy way to share Christ’s message, love, and redeeming grace.

2015 Flower Chart

The 2015 flower chart is now in the binder in the library.  Two or more families can sign up per Sunday.  The cost of the flowers is $15.00 per family.  You can place your donation for the flowers in the offering plate on Sunday.  If you do so, please be sure to designate that in the appropriate box on your offering envelope.
