Announcments

For December, we are collecting shaving cream, razors & aftershave for both Immanuel Community Services and Compass Cascade Women's Shelter. Last month, we collected 30 toothpaste, 15 toothbrushes and 18 body lotions. Thanks to all who donated.

Pastor’s AIC class will resume on December 8, at 7 p.m. with lesson 10, a study on “Holy Baptism” (including a discussion on infant baptism.) Walk-ins are always welcome.

Former Ensemble musicians - There will be a practice for Christmas Eve service on December 21 at 7 p.m. Please contact Bev Edmon if you would like to play with the current ensemble members. We are going to play from the front of church this year so we need to practice together prior to Christmas Eve. Questions? Please contact Bev Edmon, bevedmon@gmail.com or 425.486.4653.
One Night, One Community, One Vision. Save the date for Concordia Lutheran School’s Annual Auction coming Saturday, March 31, 2012.

The Youth are sponsoring an Advent Food Drive for the Lake City Food Bank. The food drive runs from November 27 - December 18. Needed are dried pastas, canned goods, boxed cereals and bags of dried beans. Please look for a collection bin in the Narthex. Thank you for your generous support.

Today in Sunday school: The lesson is the foretelling of the birth of John the Baptist Luke (1:5-25). The children learned that God in His mercy promised to send John to prepare sinful people for the coming of the Lord. In His Word, God calls us (sinful people) to repentance, declaring us righteous because of His Son, Jesus. In your family discussion, ask the children to retell the story they learned. Talk about times when you have doubted God's Word and how because of Jesus, God forgives our doubts, granting us faith to believe through the power of the Holy Spirit.

This year for our Christmas project we want to say Merry Christmas to our military forces serving in various countries. Working with LCMS Ministry to the Armed Forces, we will be collecting the items to send to chaplains who will distribute the items to the men and women in their areas. Items may be brought into the office no later than Monday, December 5. In addition, there are Christmas cards that you may write a note that will be sent with the collected items. If you would like to donate money the shopping will be done for you. (This project replaces the Lake City Children's Project.)

Advent is upon us! This also means that the Junior High and High School aged youth will be meeting in the Narthex after each Wednesday night service to go out for dessert. This is a great time for fellowship and sweet treats!

Advent Calendars: Carol Martens will be selling them during Education Hour this Sunday. They are $3.00 each. This is also an opportunity to sign up to purchase the “Luther” book ($10.00) if you missed it. Messiah’s 2009 Christmas CD will be available starting November 27 for $1.00 each. More calendars & Luther books have been ordered and will be offered next Sunday.

Mary/Martha will NOT meet in December but will resume on January 9, 2012.

Men's Night Out, Monday December 5 at 6:00 pm at Romano's Macaroni Grill located at 401 NE Northgate Way. Please RSVP to Brian Danforth at 206.363.5654.

Pillowcase Dresses - Please bring completed pillowcase dresses on Sunday, December 11. Bev Edmon will mail them to Gail Ludvigson who will take them to Africa in January. So far, we have 60 dresses to send with her. Thank you for supporting this continuing project.
