News from our Weekly Bulletin

Sunday School Pumpkin Decorating:  Our students and their families are invited to stay after our second service on Sunday, November 10 to decorate pumpkins to be sold the following weeks, with proceeds donated to our Building Fund. We’ll get started around 11:30; lunch will be provided. Please tell any of our staff how many from your family will be able to attend.

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.

Hunting Season  Worship Service:  An additional worship service will be held Thursday, November 21 at 7:00 p.m., before the opening of hunting season.  Like our summer Thursday evening services, it will be a preview (or rough draft) of the following Sunday.

The Organization of WELS Lutheran Seniors (OWLS):  Our next meeting will be Thursday, November 21 at noon at St. Peter, McMillan. We enjoy a pot-luck lunch, brief business meeting, and a topic of local interest. Everyone 55 and above is welcome to attend.
    Our synod’s OWLS is the major supporter of the WELS Civilian Chaplaincy to military and civilians living in Europe. Every year OWLS members fund the salary of the Civilian Chaplain who visits our service people and civilians who are in Europe.
    More information is available at the OWLS website: www.wels.net/serving-you/christian-life/special-ministries/wels-seniors.

​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. 

Remember the Kwik Trip cards!  In commemoration of Northland’s 40th Anniversary, Kwik Trip has contributed a limited number of gift cards for resale. A full 20% of the sales will go directly to debt reduction! We still have around $7,000 worth. Come in to purchase some today!

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.
