Creation of Diocesan Youth Council
Calling high school youth! Looking for another way to get involved with your church and diocese? How about an additional service qualifier for that resume or those college applications? Interested in leadership and developing these skills? The Diocese of Milwaukee is looking for qualified youth to participate on a Diocesan Youth Council. What does this council do, you ask? It plans events for the youth of the diocese of course! At this time we want to plan a few major events a year, specifically for spring and fall 2016. But these require at least 2 previous planning sessions. Please keep in mind this will require some travel and time commitment. Our first Planning Meeting will be Saturday November 14,2015 9am-3pm at St. Paul’s, Watertown. If you are interested in participating, please contact Rev Carla McCook to confirm (firstname.lastname@example.org) Looking forward to seeing you this fall!
Yoga will take place on Monday mornings at 8:30am-9:30am on the following dates: September 14 — October 26, and November 2 — December 14
Sunday November 29, 2015, following the 10 am Morning Prayer Service. If you are interested in joining out “task force” to help plan for this new ministry, please contact Gayle Radavich
Raking leaves with the Girl Scouts: Saturday November 7, 9am-12pm. Again on Sunday November 8 after church services. Back up dates in the event of bad weather are Saturday 11/14 and Sunday 11/15.
Winter is again coming our way. Time to settle down to watch a Packers Game and enjoy a warm bowl of soup! Next Sunday, November 8th, soupe will be offered for sale after each service. $5 per 22 ounce container. If you would be willing to help prepare the soup, please join Lee Monk on Saturday November 7th between 9am and 12pm in the church kitchen.
Women’s Bible Study
November 11th at 6:30pm in the Loft. Walk with Ruth as she travels from Moab to Bethlehem, certain of her calling, yet uncertain of her future. Hold Naomi’s hand and watch love put the pieces of her broken life back together. And hang out with Boaz, their kinsman-redeemer, who blesses both women and honors God, big time. See Gayle Radavich for details: email@example.com or 414-418-4717.
