SOUTHWEST INTERFAITH—DECEMBER Focus

Southwest Interfaith is an ecumenical organization which furnishes several means of assistance to older adults in the southwest corner of Milwaukee. The transportation ministry helps people who don’t drive, in making appointments and running errands.  The home assistance ministry helps with chores around the house and yard.  Both ministries help people maintain an independent lifestyle.  Visitation is a very important facet of the Southwest Interfaith ministry.  Loneliness can be just as incapacitating as a physical disability.  S.T.O.C. was one of the founding members of Southwest Interfaith.  Please do your best to keep this tradition alive.



YOUTH CHOIR – CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE

Thank you to the children and youth who are participating in our “Candles and Carols” program on Christmas Eve.

Only TWO Rehearsal remain:

          December 11, 11:20-12:00

          December 18, 9:00-9:45am

Today’s rehearsal will begin immediately following the 10:00am service. Please note the time for next Sunday’s rehearsal. That is our dress rehearsal, and it will begin as soon as the early service is finished so that we can run the entire program at that time.

If you have questions, please see either Angie Bier or Anne Van Deusen.

STUDY OF ISLAM

islam-crescent-435x235

Between the scriptural connections and the political importance, we felt that Islam would be a great subject to study.  All are welcome to join Men’s Bible Study, Tuesday evening, 6:30pm.  Please join us.



HOSPITALITY CENTER REQUESTS

The Hospitality Center in Racine is short of personal items such as:  Soap, Wash clothes, Towels, Toothpaste, Tooth brushes, Wool Socks, winter clothing and hand sanitizers.   Please be generous and help out in this time of need.

Thank you, and God bless.



A FRIENDLY REMINDER

Pledge cards were distributed the end of October. As our treasurer works to put together the budget for next year it is helpful to have as much information as possible.  If you have a pledge card that you plan on returning, please do so at your earliest convenience.  Thanks so much.



CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE SIGN UP

We’re only 2 weeks away from Christmas!  On the bulletin board in the Narthex, you’ll find a lay minister sign up sheet for the Christmas Eve service.  Please check you schedules and sign up if you plan on taking part of in this beautiful service.  The Christmas Eve Service will be at 5:00pm.  We already have Lay Ministers signed up for Christmas Day.
