A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Fall is upon us. Fall is my favorite season of the year, however, I don’t really appreciate the cold and snow this early. To me, it is a time when things settle down more after the busy summer. It is also the time that I reflect MORE on giving thanks and sharing.
We have been informed that there is greater demand at our Area Food Shelf. Within this newsletter you will find more information on our local food shelf and a listing of their urgent needs. There is a container in the NARTHEX provided for food shelf items.
Mark your calendars!!! The WELCA Christmas Dinner and Silent Auction has been scheduled for Monday, December 11, 2023. Auction items are appreciated. Proceeds from the silent auction go to a good cause. Please invite your friends. This is a very nice evening. More details to follow. If you wish to donate auction items or make reservations, please contact Kate Undeland at 218-780-2436.
This is a bit of late news, but our quilters entered several quilts in the Embarrass Fair this year. Our quilts took first, second and third place. Congratulations. Both are quilters and bandage rollers are very busy and very much appreciated. Thank you. I would like to thank all of the volunteers that help in the church in some way. Our volunteers and all members are very important. Our church would not function without you. Thank you all.
Sunday School is back in session with Jill Dickinson as our Leader. Thank you Jill. She can always use volunteers. Bring your children to Sunday School. It is a fun time and a great way to learn more about God.
Included in this Newsletter is our November calendar. During the month of November, we have several special worship services: All Saints Day, Veteran’s Service and “Give Thanks” Service. Hopefully, now that summer is over, we will see more members (and guests) at worship service. Great fellowship.
Our Nominating Committee is in the process of seeking candidates for future terms. This is not an easy task and we do appreciate your willingness to serve. Say Yes!
At this time, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. We are so fortunate to be so blessed. Give thanks and remember prayer is powerful.
GOD BLESS YOU
Our Bible School Camp was a huge success again this year with 24 participants. Thank you to Katie Feldt for her organizing and leadership along with Jill Dickinson, Kristina Peyla and Connor Feldt. You did an awesome job. I also want to thank all who worked in the kitchen, cleanup crew and the Stewardship Committee for the great lunch on Friday.
Our Savior’s Lutheran Church is so fortunate to have such talented and ambitious hands always willing to help. I thank all of you. I know the summer months are very busy with family, vacations, etc., and I especially thank those who give up their time in the summer to lend a helping hand at church. WE HAVE AN AWESOME CONGREGATION AND I AM SO GLAD TO BE A PART OF IT. Thank you again.
Hopefully, with fall approaching and kids back in school, we will see more members back in church. We miss you. Feel free to bring your friends. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
WE ARE OUR SAVIOR’S SERVANTS IN OUR CHURCH, COMMUNITY AND THE WORLD
