  What's Happening?  
Here is a great opportunity to help your church, spread the message of Jesus birth to thousands of people and renew inside of you what Christmas is all about! We are in need of people of all ages and abilities to help at the Diorama at Riverside Park. Some characters do quite a bit of standing (the Angel Choir and Roman guards), some do a lot of walking (the citizens and Wise Men), some only sit (Mary and the tax collectors), some do a little of each (shepards and Joseph), and some walk and sit a little, but are always warm (the people in the warming trailer serving food or helping people get dressed at First Lutheran School). A few things you may not know: The angel choir is a recording, so even if you can't carry a note, no worry! All of the outer clothing is supplied; you dress underneath however warm you wanna be! There are people at First Lutheran that will help you choose clothes and get you dressed. A bus takes you to and from First Lutheran/diorama. Groups take turns being a character and being in the warming trailer. If you would love to be a part of the diorama, but are unable to do it our weekend, you can volunteer ANY Saturday or Sunday, just go to First Lutheran School about an hour before leaving for the diorama. Even if you are not interested in being a character or helping down at the diorama, we need people to supply food for the volunteers. Snacks, treats, sandwiches, hot cocoa, anything would be appreciated! When you hear the remarks of people walking and/or driving by, you realize just how special this opportunity has been. Please sign up at church and/or contact Carl Cox, Pastor Rimmert or George Italiano with any questions.

Meet and Eat is a time for us to get together, to know each other, and share fellowship. Mona and Carl Cox choose a place for us to meet and have supper on the last Sunday of each month at 6:00 pm, .  You can sign up by contacting them (788-7909) or signing up at church.  
The Meet and Eats have been put on hold until after the New Year! 

The Good Steward Resale Shop!!
The Good Steward Resale Shop is now located at 1930 Rose Street.  Just down the highway from where it was (in the old Edwardo's Pizza location).   There is always something new at The Good Steward and purchases help with Luther High School student tuition.   So, when you are cleaning closets or doing Spring/Fall cleaning, remember that The Good Steward is always looking for items.
VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED--they are looking for people that can lift heavy items.  Talk to one of the store coordinators for more information.
This is your church!  There are many times during the year when the church needs your help.  Please consider helping with one or more of the following tasks:
Shoveling snow
Cutting the grass
Being an usher
Cleaning the church
Being on a committee
Helping with Sunday or Vacation Bible School

If you are interested in any of these areas, please let Pastor Rimmert know!
