Our Annual Chili Dinner will be held at noon the last Sunday of this month, the 27th. A table offering will be gathered for our Ladies’ Aid. We don’t advertise the event publicly, but you are welcome to invite family and friends from outside our membership.
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.
Altar and Cleaning Volunteer Schedules for 2019 have been posted on the bulletin board in the kitchen. Volunteers are appreciated!
The Northland Lutheran High School Board of Directors is inviting anyone in the Association to participate in a planning session the morning of Saturday, January 19, from 8:00 to 11:30. We pray the discussions and actions that stem from that day drive five-year plans to greater reach our mission and vision.
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.
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. Prescription medication bottles are no longer needed.
Empty prescription medication bottles are no longer being collected.
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.
