Salvation Army Bell Ringing - December 2nd & 9th (our 24th year)
Are you looking for a way you can do ministry during the holidays? One easy way is ringing bells for the Salvation Army. Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd members, families and friends have the opportunity to donate one or two hours of time to assist with this critical work. We will cover two full days of bell ringing at one location: Cub Foods on Central Entrance (inside!). The dates are Saturday, December 2nd and 9th, from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM (this starts one hour later and ends one hour earlier than past years). Look for the signup poster in November. It will be on an easel in the gathering space. Please fill in your name for one or two one-hour time slots to offer your help for this worthwhile cause.
Christmas Cookies to share!
Again this year, Reaching Out Leadership Team will be collecting cookies for the Visitation team to deliver to LCGS home bound, the CHUM Drop-In
Center, Twin Ports Ministry to Seafarers and St. Louis County jail
Please bring your homemade or bought cookies to the church
office by 9:00 am on Monday, December 11. Please mark the cookie container with "Visitation" to assure proper delivery. Due to food allergies, please
label your cookies if there are nuts, peanut butter or coconut in them.
If you need to bring cookies early, the cookies can be placed in
the downstairs freezer with marked for "Visitation"
Youth Silent Auction
Our goal is to set up and wrap up the Silent Auction before mid-December - making this a great opportunity to do some holiday shopping for a great cause! All money collected will support our high school youth going to New Orleans next summer for the ELCA Youth Gathering.
Do you have something you are willing to donate? Please drop off all donations to the church office before Thanksgiving. But, we'll start setting up tables as a "preview" as soon as we can!
Thank you so much for your generous support!
Christmas Eve Preparations
We are looking for candles of all shapes and sizes to add to our Christmas Eve Worship Services. You may drop off candles at the church office at any time between now and Christmas Eve, or bring your own candle with you that day. Candles could be of special meaning and significance for you personally, or they could be extras that you are ready to pass on. Our goal is to light all candles during our Christmas Eve Worship experiences - as the Light of Christ spreads to each and everyone of us. Even if you aren't able to join us for worship that day, we will light your candle in your honor.
Christmas Eve Worship:
There will be NO SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP ON
Worship times are: 2:30pm, 4:30pm, and 10:00pm
Christmas Day Worship: 9:30AM
