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.

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.

Baptism: Saturday morning Caleb Eric Diederich, the son of Timothy Scott Diederich and Hope Marie Gibson, was made part of God’s family by the sacrament of Holy Baptism.  “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved.”

The Evening Circle will be putting together the Christmas Boxes for the shut-ins on Wednesday Dec.13 at 10:30 a.m. in the Ed Building. Donations of cookies, candy or fruit would be greatly appreciated!

Advent Song Service: On Sunday, December 10, starting at 3:30 p.m., the choirs of St. John’s Lutheran Church of Jefferson (Junior Choir, Male Chorus, Mixed Choir, Grace Notes, and Alleluia Ringers) present a Christmas concert featuring songs of praise to our Lord Jesus who has come and will come again. Join us as we strive to “Come! Ring, Sing, Celebrate!” the birth of our Savior.
