Christmas Decorations Set Up for the 2018 Season :
A BIG thank you goes out to all of the folks who volunteered their time on Saturday, December 1st to set up the Christmas decorations for this 2018 season.  Special thanks goes to Leana Hilde as she was the "director" of the setup, making sure that decorations were accounted for, categorized, and brought down from the attic areas days before the decorating actually began.  Of course, we always like to lift up the guys who show up and do the "upstairs" work in climbing ladders, placing decorations and straightening branches way up on the ladders.  Thanks again to everyone who participated; you make the Christmas Season more beautiful and enjoyable!  
NO Informal Worship Service in December :
There will be NO Informal Worship Service in December (normally held the 4th Wednesday of the month) due to the busy-ness of the Christmas Season and the importance of attending the Christmas Eve Service (4 pm. 6 pm. and 10 pm. on December 24th.)  Pastor Michael will play guitar and sing at the 4 pm. and 6 pm. Christmas Eve services instead.  The Informal Worship Service will resume in January on the 23rd.  Remember - it's always held on the 4th Wednesday of the month! Thanks, and kindly disregard any other announcements that might say we are having the service in December.   

Christmas Eve Services on December 24th at 4 pm., 6 pm. and 10 pm. :
We will have our annual Christmas Eve Services on December 24th at 4 pm., 6 pm. and 10 pm.  This is a very special and holy night as we lift up the blessings of the Christ child in song and word.  The St. John Lutheran Church Gospel Choir will perform special music at the 10:00 p.m. service, and Pastor Michael will play guitar and sing, as the special music, at the 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. services.

Sunday School Christmas Program and Practices :
The practices are scheduled for Sundays, December 2nd and 9th at 9:15 a.m.  The actual performance is on December 16th at the
10:30 a.m. service (Holy Communion will still be served.)  Please make sure your young people attend the rehearsals and YOU attend the wonderful performance presented by our young people at St. John Lutheran.

Elders and Trustees Meeting and Church Council on December 18th :
Please remember that the Elder Meeting, Trustees Meeting, and Church Council Meeting have been switched to Tuesday, December 18th because the following Tuesday is Christmas!  All meetings will meet at the regular times.
