Merry Christmas! May the blessing of our Savior’s birth fill your hearts with joy, not only this Christmas season, but throughout the New Year.

Sign-up Sheet to bring snacks and/or drinks for the Sunday School children is in the cry room.  It would be nice to see some new names on this, and other sign-up sheets.  This is your congregation.

Help Needed: We could use some individuals to help pick up people and bring them to church on Sundays.  These might be shut-ins or college students.  Most, if not all of them, will be in town.  If you would be willing to help, a sign-up sheet is in the cry room.  I will probably draw up a weekly schedule.  Also, we could use some men to serve as council members next year.  There is only one meeting per month.  Our present council members have been serving for a number of years, and some of them would like a break.

Envelopes: Next year’s offering envelopes are in the back of church.  Please pick up your packet after the service.

Winter Blood Drive Peace Lutheran will be hosting another American Red Cross Blood Drive on Wednesday, January 18th from 1 pm to 6 pm. Our Red Cross Blood Drives are intended as both a community service and an Outreach event. Appointments to donate blood can now be made either on line at redcrossblood.org or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS.  If you aren’t sure if you’d be eligible to donate, call the 1-800-RED CROSS phone number.
