CEC News

Sunday School: We will continue to practice our songs for the Christmas play “You Can’t Cancel Christmas”, during November at the beginning of the Sunday School hour. We ask that all parents help us out by having your child/children attend Sunday School.

Youth Ministry: This month’s Youth Activity will be participating in the Advent Workshop.

Advent Workshop: Come join CEC at the Advent Workshop right after church on Sunday November 23rd. We will be wrapping candles for Christmas Eve Services, putting boxes together for our College Students, making advent chain link wreaths, and making Christmas Cards for both the Shut-ins and our College students. No lunch will be served this year as there is a noon Packer Game. There still is plenty of time before the game to participate in the workshop. Hope you see you there!

Giving Tree: The Giving Tree will be going up on November 23rd. The tree will be decorated with gift tags with ideas which will be donated to the St. John’s Homeless Shelter. If you wish to purchase gifts please take gift tags off the tree and bring the gifts back to church unwrapped no later than Sunday December 21st. The gifts will then be brought to St. John’s for distribution. A list of items is also included in this newsletter.

College Care Packages: It’s that time of year to show our support to our Congregation College students by sending them care packages. A note with pull tabs will be posted on the bulletin board in the Narthex with suggestions. Please feel free to take a pull tab and bring your purchase to church before or on Sunday November 23rd. The Care Packages will be assembled during the Advent Workshop and sent to the students in time for their exams. The students really appreciate the support of their congregation.

Next CEC meeting will be Tuesday November 11th @6pm
