The Contemporary Service Committee
is looking for volunteers that are musically inclined to help with a Saturday evening Contemporary service. Please speak with Pastor Greenwald if you are interested or have questions.

LWML/Guild to Cut Stamps
LWML/Guild is asking everyone to bring their envelopes with cancelled stamps for first class postage to church during January.  They will be cutting out the stamps and then forwarding them to the Indiana District of the LCMS.  The stamps will be sold, with the proceeds being used for mission purposes. The envelopes may be deposited in the drawer located next to the mailboxes in the hallway.  Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.
The Day Care Wish List - January Request
Glue Sticks 
The children will go through a ton of glue sticks.  With Valentine's day around the corner there are plenty of art projects with hearts that need to be glued on.  The glue sticks are used for a multitude of class practice pages as well as the craft projects. Each month the Day Care would like to make a request for a particular Wish List item.  These items may be brought in at any time and dropped off for the day care.  If you have any questions, please speak with Richard Lancaster.
Thank you to all parents and church members that supported our Kleenex drive in December. We collected well over 100 boxes of Kleenex! It is for sure a white January for us! May the noses run in our favor!

A Chance to Serve
We could use Ushers and Greeter for the upcoming services.  We are in need of Ushers and Greeters on Sunday mornings.  We would love to have people volunteer to serve on a weekly basis.   If you would like to help with this either sign up for a Sunday on the bulletin board in the hallway or speak with Glen Boettjer or Don McKinley.   Thank you to everyone for helping with this very important project for our Sunday worship experience.
