In our prayers this week, we remember the following school families: Ben & Chauntaine Kidder, Eric & Robin Klaus, and Matt & Amanda Kuhlman.
CHAPEL OFFERINGS FOR NOVEMBER & DECEMBER- WARREN’S TABLE
In November and December, we will be collecting money for Warren’s Table. This outreach project at Christ Episcopal Church in Beatrice provides a free meal to the public each Tuesday evening. After we raise funds, we plan to prepare and serve a meal with our older students, and donate any extra funds raised. Our meal is scheduled for Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018, so mark your calendars! The current total is $133.06.
We encourage you to prepare for Christmas by attending the midweek Advent Services: December 13th and December 20th beginning at 7:00 p.m. at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. Plan now to worship on these Wednesday evenings and invite a friend or relative to join you. A supper will be served beginning at 5:30 p.m. on these Wednesdays before the evening service. A free will offering will be taken for the meals.
