Community  Thanksgiving  Service  Tonight  
The  annual  community  Thanksgiving  service  
for  Winterset  will  be  held  here  at  St.  Paul  this  
evening,  the  24th,  at  7:00  p.m.,  with  sermon  
by  Pastor  Jared  of  the  Seventh  Day  Adventist  
Church.  Everyone  is  welcome  ,  and  please

congregation  who  are  helping  with  it!  

 
Christmas  Decorating  Party  Today  
Kim  Patience  and  Sonya  VerMulm  will  host  a  decorating  party  after  second  
service  today,  to  get  the  church  ready  for  Christmas  and  Hanging  of  the  
Greens.  We  will  need  people  to  haul  items  down  from  the  attic,  set  up  trees,  
etc.  Lunch  will  be  provided  also.  If  you  are  interested  in  helping,  please  let  Julie  
in  the  office  know,  or  contact  Kim  Patience  (515-­‐468-­‐0503).  

 
Poinsettias  for  Christmas  
If  you  would  like  to  help  decorate  the  church  for  Christmas,  you  can  buy  a  
poinsettia.  The  cost  is  $14.98.  A  sign-­‐up  sheet  is  on  the  kiosk  in  the  hall.  We  
have  ordered  30  poinsettias,  so  please  sign  up  to  claim  yours  today.  
 
 

Group  Homes  Christmas  Party  
A  Christmas  list  for  the  residents  of  the  group  homes  can  be  found  on  a  kiosk  
in  the  hall.  If  you  have  signed  up  to  provide  a  gift,  please  bring  it  (wrapped  and  
tagged  with  the  recipient)  by  December  1st.  We  will  host  our  traditional  party  
on  December  15th  at  1:00  pm.  If  you  have  questions,  ask  Twila.  
 

Flowers are given by Matt and Candi Dole in joyful
celebration of their 15th wedding anniversary.
 

Tour  of  Homes  
We  are  seeking  donations  of  cookies  for  the  tour  of  homes,  which  will  be  
December  7th,  led  by  Sheila  Stewart  and  crew.  If  you  can  provide  some,  please  
bring  them  to  the  church  by  December  6th  (or  early  morning  on  the  7th).    

 

Devotions  in  December  
St.  Paul  Lutheran  is  responsible  for  devotions  at  Madison  Square  and  West  
Bridge  on  December  8th.  
 

Today we celebrate the baptismal anniversary
of Molly Boyd.
 

 

Hospitality  Committees:  Assignments  for  Advent  
As  tradition  goes  at  St.  Paul,  we  are  arranging  for  several  upcoming  special  events  by  asking  our  monthly  hospitality  
committees  to  assist  with  providing  a  meal  (or  food  for  a  reception,  as  the  case  may  be).  Here  are  the  assignments  for  this  
Advent  season.  You  will  likely  be  contacted  by  your  committee’s  chair  to  see  if  you  are  able  to  help  or  provide  a  donation.    
Thanks  for  your  service!

Communion  Outreach  
The  Health,  Wellness  &  Healing  Team  is  seeing  if  our  homebound  (shut-­‐in)  members  would  like  to  receive  communion  with  
a  visit  at  their  residence.  The  communion  would  be  blessed  during  a  Sunday  service  and  there  would  be  training  for  those  
interested  in  delivering.  Please  let  Pastor  Joel  know  if  you  are  interested  in  being  part  of  this  outreach.  

 
Scrip  Cards  for  Christmas  Giving  
In  your  bulletin  today,  please  see  the  order  form  for  all  the  possible  cards  we  can  get  
through  our  Scrip  program  for  your  holiday  giving.  As  a  reminder,  the  purchase  of  
these  cards  through  St.  Paul  generates  money  for  our  church.  Stacy  and  Keri  would  
like  to  have  orders  returned  by  December  8th  to  allow  enough  time  to  receive  cards  
and  get  them  to  you  before  Christmas.  We  have  a  lot  of  cards  on  hand,  also,  with  no  
need  to  special  order.  Just  find  Stacy  or  Keri  between  services  and  they  can  fill  you  in!  

 
    Multi  Purpose  Center  Offering  
Next  week  is  our  regular  offering  for  the  Multi  Purpose  Center.  Canned  meats,  cereal  and  baby  supplies  (diapers,  etc.)  are  
particularly  helpful.  
 

CRISP  Adopt-­‐A-­‐Family  Ornaments  
Our  mission  team  has  been  in  touch  with  CRISP  and  adopted  some  people  for  Christmas.  Their  wishes  are  written  on  
ornaments,  which  will  be  placed  on  the  tree  in  the  front  hallway.  Please  check  the  instruction  sheet  next  to  the  tree  to  
make  sure  we  have  all  the  gifts  accounted  for,  or  ask  Liz  Hansen,  462-­‐3987.  
 

New worship calendars are on the usher’s table. You’re welcome to pick one up.
