New Addresses for our part of Marathon County are being assigned. The church is 113265 County Road P; the parsonage is 113267 County Road P; “EP” isn’t used. Both are still a Stratford address with the 54484 zip code. Please report your new address to Pastor.
Christmas Cards provided by our Ladies’ Aid are on display at the front of our Fellowship Hall. There are also cards for birthday, get well, thank-you, sympathy, wedding, baby, and other occasions. Prices are noted on the box; most cards are 50 cents per card or $3.00/box.
Altar and Cleaning Volunteer Schedules for 2019 have been posted on the bulletin board in the kitchen. Volunteers are appreciated!
Visit the Northland Lutheran High School Pride Pump to earn 2 cents/ gallon for Northland Lutheran High. It’s located at the R-Store Cedar Creek BP, 10201 Park Plaza, Rothschild, next to Culver’s.
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.
Journey to Bethlehem: The annual live, interactive nativity at Northland Lutheran High will be held Saturday, December 15, from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Hear the prophecies, talk with the shepherds, make your way through busy Bethlehem, and ponder the birth of Jesus. Please RSVP for a time slot through our website: www.nlhs.org. Here a few specifics:
There is a no cost. The whole experience should take under 45 minutes. Bring the whole family, but no pets, please. Guests need to be able to walk without assistance. The event is outdoors, so please dress for the weather. There will be fellowship and refreshments after the Journey.
Our Ladies’ Aid collects greeting card covers, Campbell’s soup labels, and UPC bar code labels from Best Choice products sold at Davel's in Stratford and at the Lakeside Fresh Market in Spencer. Please put your donations on the kitchen counter.
Anyone with an artistic bent is welcome to contribute art (paper or digital) to portray the Scripture readings in our Sunday and holiday bulletins. The Scripture readings follow the Year B series on page 164 in the front of our hymnal. Our monthly calendar includes the church year date for each Sunday.
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.
