Food collection: We will be gathering food for the Whitewater Food Pantry.  We will start this collection at Thanksgiving and end at Christmas.  There will be boxes where you can place your donated food items in church.

Holy Communion: We invite to the Lord’s Supper those who are united with us in faith and have made public profession of that faith by membership in a WELS or ELS congregation.  We ask our visitors to please respect our practice. The pastor can answer any questions you may have on this matter.  WELS/ELS visitors, please register in the Friendship Register.

Happy Birthday Jesus will be December 17. The Sunday School will sing that Sunday.  There is also a sign-up sheet to bring food for the fellowship hour that Sunday.  Also, don’t forget the weekly snack sheet for Sunday School.  That is also in the Cry Room.

Advent Services will be held every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. until Christmas.
