Jesus Christ Superstar– Jan. 19-213
Greendale Community Theater is presenting “Jesus Christ Superstar”, and there are three more performances. Composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, JCS tells the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. It includes high energy singing and a large orchestra and is an inspiring way to begin thinking about the upcoming season of Lent. This production involves local actors, including Rev. David Gaeth, the pastor at Greendale Community Church. Music direction by Anne Van Deusen.
The last three performances are Thurs-Sat, Jan 19-21, 7:30pm. Tickets are available at greendaletheatre.org ($15-adult or $12-student/senior).
The financial team is looking for individuals to join our counting team. You work in teams and are responsible to count the offering after the 10:00 am service. Commitment is about once every 6 weeks. Please contact either Kris Reed or Tammy Wyman for more information.
Recording Treasurer Needed
The financial team is in need of a person to assist with the deposits and record keeping of weekly donations. You would be responsible to come to church every other Monday or Tuesday evening to verify the weekly offering, put together the deposit and key information into our pledging system. If you want to learn more and/or are interested, please contact either Kris Reed or Tammy Wyman.
Hosting Coffee Hour
It is that time of year again to sign up to be coffee hour hosts for 2017. We are looking for 12 families (you can pair up with another parishioner too) which would mean only serving about once every quarter. We are using an online system so you get to pick that date that works best for you. We also would love to have individuals give hosting a try so you can sign up for one time to see if this is a ministry for you. Please add your name to the signup sheet in the office. If you have any questions, please see Angie Bier or Tammy Wyman.
Save the Date
We are hosting a Mystery Dinner Theater event on Saturday, Feb.18th beginning at 6:00 pm. This event is a fund raiser for the church so please plan on joining us. More details to follow.
Study of Islam
Between the scriptural connections and the political importance, we felt that Islam would be a great subject to study. All are welcome to join or study on Islam, Tuesday evening, 6:30pm. Please join us.
Just a reminder that in case of severe winter weather, WISN/Channel 12 is where STOC’s cancellation information will be found. You can either watch WISN or check http://www.wisn.com/weather/closings for the most updated information.
