Announcements ~ November 2017



The youth are having a fundraiser to support the 2018 National Youth Gathering in Houston TX. During November, you can order a personalized cake pan, kitchen accessories and more. These items are ordered from the “That’s My Pan” Company in Chippewa Falls, WI. Please take time to look at the samples in the Gathering Space. We will be taking orders during the month of November with delivery before Christmas. These make great personalized gifts for family, friends, special occasions, anniversaries, weddings and more. Please see a representative at the table before or after church service for more details. You can order at the table or order directly from We highly recommend you order online as you can use a credit card and enter your personalization directly.


It’s that time of year again when the Elves are preparing for the holiday season at the Manitowoc Health Care Center. In the Gathering Space is a list of suggested gifts that may be purchased to help out the residents. Please have all items back to the stewardship cabinet by Thursday, November 30. Leave all gifts unwrapped.



In As Much Sunday

‘I tell you, in as much as you did this for one of the least important of these followers of mine, you did it for me!’ (Matthew 25:40) God tells us that whatever we do for others, we are doing for God. In the spirit of this, we will have a toy drive for children who are in need this Christmas. We ask that you purchase a new toy/gift that you would like for yourself and give it up for someone else. We will be collecting the items during worship Sunday, December 3 and Wednesday, December 6. You can also drop toys off at church before December 11.                                        


Faith Lutheran Church is again sponsoring the “Sharing Tree.”  The tree is located on the Welcome Center in the Gathering Space.  On this tree are tags that represent gift items for an extended family.  A spending suggestion for each tag is $20.00.  Information sheets highlighting the family are available near the tree.  All gifts need to be returned to church unwrapped no later than Tuesday, December 5th, as they will be delivered the following day.  Support in the past years has been tremendous, so I am confident this family will see God’s love made real through your generosity.  Any questions can be directed to Julie Endries at 920-973-9881.

Poinsettia orders for Christmas will be taken December 3, 6, 10 & 13. Order forms can be found in the Gathering Space. Each plant is red in color and is $9.50. Wednesday, December 13 is the deadline to have all orders in.


Christmas Caroling will take place Friday, December 8 at 5:00-6:30 p.m. Please meet at church and we will divide into groups to go caroling. All ages and singing ability are welcome to join in this event. We will have upper when we return from caroling. Please sign up on the sheet in the Gathering Space if you plan on attending.
