ANNOUNCEMENTS:

  
ADULT CHOIR PRACTICE/SIGN UP:  Practice will be on Wednesday evenings at 7PM.  There will be no practice on November 21st.  More voices are always welcome...we're not looking for soloists, just people who enjoy singing and would like to join us!   There is a sign up sheet on the bulletin board in the narthex.  Contact Susi Huls or Sue Grindley with any questions.
 
KRISPY KREME DONUTS!  Place your order today for Krispy Kreme Donuts!  See a high school student to place your order. 
  
HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH GATHERINGS take place in the youth room every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.  Check the "Youth" page for updates!

THE SAINT JOSEPH FOOD PANTRY NEEDS OUR HELP!
Demand is high, and food supplies for the pantry are often stretched.  Bring your canned and non-perishable goods to the boxes in the breezeway entrance (near the church offices).  Your donations will be a blessing to families in need in our community!

  
WOMEN’S COFFEE AND PRAYER:  All women are invited to gather bright and early every Wednesday morning at Geschenk Coffee Haus in downtown St. Joseph. We meet at 7am for about 45 minutes of conversation, a devotional, and prayer.  And, we enjoy a variety of delicious hot and cold coffees and teas plus breakfast items.  It’s a wonderful start to the day; Jesus, prayer, hugs, and sweet friendship. Come anytime, and bring a friend!
