Poinsettias to beautify God’s house for Christmas may be ordered by signing the list on the table in our entry. The cost is $10.00. Please note any memorials you would like to have listed in our worship bulletins.

Our Thanksgiving Offering will support the building project at the newest congregation of our West Wisconsin District, Bethlehem Lutheran in Richland Center. They have purchased a vacant school, which they plan to remodel for worship, childcare, and elder services. Our total through November is $1,013.00.

Christmas Cards made available by our Ladies’ Aid are on display on the table at the front of our Fellowship Hall.

Altar and Cleaning Volunteers for 2022 are needed and appreciated! Please sign up on the lists on the round table at the front of our Fellowship Hall. Our Ladies’ Aid organizes the schedule, but you don’t have to be a member of the Ladies’ Aid (nor even a lady!) to volunteer.

A Complimentary Copy of the new Christian Worship is on the display table under the bulletin board along the west wall of our Fellowship Hall, along with copies of its introductory booklet.  In synod publications it is referred to as CW21 to distinguish it from our current CW93.

Northland Lutheran High School News:

The Northland Fall Fruit Sale is underway!  Please see the order forms and flyers on the round table at the front of our Fellowship Hall.

Debt Reduction:  In January we set an ambitious goal to reach $1,167,000 in debt reduction by 12/31/2021. This means that, God-willing, a third of Northland’s total debt will be gone by the end of the year. To this point, God has compelled hearts to give $1,119,226 in total debt reduction–we have only $47,774 to reach this year’s goal! Continue to prayerfully consider how you can help.

Visit the Northland Pride Pump to earn 2 cents/gallon for NLHS, at the R-Store Cedar Creek BP in Rothschild, next to Culver’s.
