Donations are welcome for the Stratford food bank: canned and packaged food, personal hygiene items (soap, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, etc.) Boxes are available under the coat rack in our fellowship hall. 

Altar and Cleaning Volunteers Schedules:  Some of our Ladies’ Aid members have drawn up a schedule of Altar Guild duties for 2020, including as many of our members as possible. If you are asked to serve, please consider doing so!
    Our schedule of volunteer cleaners for 2020 is on the coffee table in the Fellowship Hall. Please consider signing up for a month!  
    Our Ladies’ Aid coordinates the work, but you don’t have to be a member (or a lady) in order to volunteer. Neither set of duties requires a large commitment of time; our experienced volunteers will be glad to show you the ropes.

​Visit the Northland Lutheran High School Pride Pump to earn 2 cents/ gallon for Northland Lutheran High.

We pray the discussions and actions that stem from that day drive five-year plans to greater reach our mission and vision.

Dime & Dollar Thrift Shop is an important source of support for Northland Lutheran High. Volunteers are needed; please call Jamie at 715-849-4168. Dime & Dollar has two locations: 211 Alexander St. in Wausau, and 3268 Church St. in Stevens Point.

Handicap Parking:  Each of the two signs at the front of our carport is intended to reserve two spaces, for the four handicap spaces required by law. Please leave those spaces for vehicles with official handicap plates or cards. It would be frustrating for those who need them to find them blocked by non-handicap vehicles.
   If you would like to park close to the building, please do so along the north side, where the exterior door to the Fellowship Hall will be unlocked. Or ask one of our ushers to park your car for you.
