Life Together
You will find many opportunities for involvement in our community of faith.

 

 

Midweek Advent Series: Sabbath
Wednesdays in Advent at 7:00 pm
We will gather at the Upper Church on Wednesdays through Advent. Using the Holden Evening Prayer worship service, we will explore the theme of Sabbath, why we do it, why it’s hard for us, and discovering ways to make it an important part of life. Using Deuteronomy 5:12-15 as a guide, we will prepare our hearts for Jesus’ birth with a Sabbath theme during one of the busiest times of the year.

We are collecting French's Crispy Fried Onions (or an off brand is ok too) for the Christmas baskets.  These are the crunchy onions that go on top of a green bean casserole.  We need 80 cans of onions, and will take donations
through, Sunday, December 8.  Please bring your donations and place them in the food pantry box in the narthex.  Again, thank you for helping our community in this way!

Alden Estates Christmas Project
Due by December 8
Once again we have been asked to help provide a Christmas gift for some of the residents of Alden Estates in Jefferson. If you would like to provide a gift, please take one of the tags from the tabletop tree in the Narthex. The gift suggestions are to help you select something that would be a good gift. You do not need to get everything on the list. One or two items would be very much appreciated. We will need them placed in the box in the narthex no later than Sunday, December 8th. Thank you.

History Display Areas in Friendship Hall
We are looking for pictures of Christmas trees and/or holiday events from you! They might be of your family at home or in church.  Also looking for Christmas items (tree ornaments, figurines, linens, etc.) you might like to have on display for a few weeks over the holidays.  They could be on the history shelves or behind the glassed area (both areas are locked for safe keeping).  We would include a few sentences describing the item, who it belongs to, what, where, when, etc. Bring your Christmas items to church and contact Bonnie Ehrke, Judy Taylor, Linda Hanson, or Marilyn Gunderson with the details. Thank you for sharing.

Attention College Students & Parents
Please remember to update the church office with college students addresses.

Cambridge Area Resource Team (CART)
Pastor Brenda serves on the board for CART, which is a charitable organization that, according to CART’s bylaws, “provides confidential assistance that brings together resources to individuals, elderly, and homeless in our local community and to provide assistance to meet basic human needs.” CART also works closely with families in the Cambridge School District. CART is in need of financial assistance. If you are interested in supporting this organization and would like to make donations through the church, you are welcome to do that. Write on your donation that you’d like the money to go to CART. Or you can send money to CART; 223 Jefferson St; Cambridge, WI 53523. The website www.cartforhelp.org also has a donation button.
Pastor Brenda has been studying poverty and how to make a difference in the local community. If you would like to see some of the things she’s been reading, let PB know. She’s always happy to share books!
