Jesup Ministerium Christmas Concert Series: 

The Jesup Ministerium is hosting a series of 3 concerts, filled with beautiful Christmas music, the first three weekends in December.  "Ring In Christmas" will be Sunday, Dec 2 at 1:30pm at Zion Jubilee Lutheran Church, La Porte City, and will feature music from hand bell choirs, chime choirs, and vocal music groups.  "Central Standard Time" will be Saturday, Dec 8, at 6:30pm at First United Methodist Church, Jesup, and will feature acoustic folk music.  "Saunders Vocal Studios" will be Sunday, Dec 16 at 2:00pm at American Lutheran Church, Jesup, and will feature Dr. Jessica Saunders and her voice students.  At each of these three concerts, a free will donation will be taken, which will be split 50/50 between the musicians and the Jesup Ministerium Fund, which is used to provide assistance with rent, utilities, food, and gas to those in the Jesup community.  Join us for one or all of these concerts this December!


Independence Food Pantry is in Need of Donations:

The independence food pantry is in need of toilet paper. Your donation would be greatly appreciated and can be left in the back of the sanctuary though the end of December.

Fellowship Hosts:
Fellowship hosts are needed for December and January. Please sign up in the Fellowship Hall.

Christmas Gifts for Bremwood Lutheran Home:

For the past few years, we have purchased Christmas gifts for the youth at Bremwood Lutheran Home in Waverly.  Bremwood is a group foster care setting that gives troubled youth a safe place to live while they receive therapy, education, and spiritual support as they work through trauma and other difficulties they have had in their lives.  The gifts will be listed on tags hanging on the Christmas tree in the back of the Sanctuary beginning November 18.  Please return all gifts to ALC on or before Sunday, December 16.
