The Blackhawk Chorale Service-Concerts this fall are being presented at St. Paul-Lake Mills (1530 S. Main Street [Hwy.89], near the southern city limits) on Sunday, November 20, at 8:00 and 10:30 a.m.  This year’s theme from Rev.14:2-3 (“Longing for the Sounds of Heaven in Christ, Our King”), highlights an arrangement of the early American hymn: “Hark, I Hear the Harps Eternal!”  All the anthems point to the Comings/Advents of Christ our King and anticipate when we will be with Him. They include: Be Thou My Vision, It Is Well With My Soul, Gaudete!, Joy in the Morning, and 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord, O My Soul). Strings or brass will accompany most of the anthems.  Members of the Chorale come from WELS congregations within the Blackhawk Circuit. Come, and bring a friend!

Thanksgiving Eve service will be on November 23 at 7:00 p.m.  Advent Services will be held on three Wednesdays – November 30, December 7 and 14 at 7:00 p.m.  The theme for these services is “Oh, come, oh, come, Emmanuel.”

Parsonage Roof: At the quarterly meeting the voters approved replacing the parsonage roof.  The bid is $6,360.00.  This will come out of the building fund.  If you would like to give a donation to this project, you can direct your gift to the building fund.

Fellowship hour is planned for November 20 after the service.  There is a sign-up sheet in the cry room to bring food.
