Advent Suppers There are sign-up sheets to help in various ways with our suppers before the mid-week Advent services on December 12 & 19. Thank you to those who donated desserts and to those who helped to set up and serve for our first Advent supper this past Wednesday.
Child Center Christmas The Child Center Christmas program will be presented during the 10:30 service on December 9th with lunch after.  Members of the congregation are invited and encouraged to attend.
Men’s Christmas Choir Remember the Men’s Choir singing Silent Night in German years ago?  Would you like to hear that again?  Looking for volunteers to sing as a group on Christmas Eve.  Practice or practices would be between the Sunday services.  Sign up on the sheet in the media room or contact Renee Hoffman at 920-252-2806.
Congregation Talent Surveys The congregation, both young and young at heart, is being surveyed to populate a database which St. Paul’s can draw from when a request for help comes from a group, committee or someone within the congregation that has a task that they can no longer tackle themselves.  Two surveys are issued - one for adults (ages 15 and over) and one for the youth (ages 5-14) in the congregation.  Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey and deposit them into the survey box in the room with the church mailboxes or mail it to:
Religious Gift Ideas If you are looking for religious devotional books or gifts, please refer to our informational display from Northwestern Publishing House.  It is located on the table in the church entry way.
Gifts for the Homebound Ministry On December 10th the Ladies Aid will be packing treats for the homebound members.  You may bring in donations of fruit (smaller sized and no bananas, please), cookies, candy or packaged treats.  Donations may be left in the kitchen until 9:30 am on December 10thPlease label your items for “Homebound” members treat bags.  We expect to assemble about 14 packages.  We appreciate the donations and help that we receive from fellow members.  If you have any questions, please call Irene Petrik (582-7734)
Thank you to our office volunteers – Melodie Hoenecke and Donna Palmeri – who assisted in the church office while our church secretary was away on vacation.
