Winter Clothing Drive
The Julia Leitzke Memorial Winter Clothing Drive will be held in November.
Please bring new or gently used winter clothing to the church between November 2 and November 23. Hats, coats, jackets, scarves, mittens, gloves, sweaters, sweatshirts, boots, and blankets are all needed.
All donations will be given to Joseph’s Coat (josephscoatmn.org), the free store where Julia volunteered for many years.
Hanging of the Greens
On Saturday, November 29, starting at 9:00 AM, children, youth and adults are invited to be part of the Greening of the Church for the Advent and Christmas seasons.
We’ll hang greens, set up the tree and decorate the sanctuary, front entryway and Fellowship Hall.
Please join in this festive intergenerational event. The more hands the merrier. Treats provided, too!
Enter into the season of Advent ... a time of waiting, preparation, anticipation, and hope.

Help Abused Moms Give Holiday Gifts to their Kids
Women’s Advocates, the oldest domestic violence shelter in St. Paul, houses women and children fleeing abusive relationships.
This holiday season the shelter is receiving donations of TARGET gift cards, in any amount. The staff divvies up the gift cards to the women and takes the women shopping at Target, so the moms can buy gifts for their child/ren.
A gift card may not be as “fun” for the giver (i.e. us), but it is so much more empowering for the moms to be able to choose gifts that they know their children need and would also enjoy. Would you like to take part?
Ø Buy a Target gift card in any dollar amount
Ø Bring it to the church office OR give it to Carol-Ann Bloom
Ø Deadline: Sunday, December 14
