Sunday School Christmas Program

Good Gifts Collection
Through January 6
During Advent and Christmas we are collecting money for ELCA World Hunger through God's Global Barnyard.  Bring your loose coins to see how much money we can collect and see what we can purchase!  A pig is $30, honeybees are $50, a cow is $500, and chicks are $1 each!  We can also purchase a water filter or Bibles for a Sunday school program or school supplies for a new student.  At the end of the season, EKLC's Sunday School children will decide what animal or goods to purchase for a community in need.  What a great way to share the love of Christ!  You can take a God's Global Barnyard coin box home and fill it up.  You can also take an ELCA World Hunger Advent calendar home and use it as a devotion through the Advent season. Thank you for your financial support for this ministry!

New Sanctuary Microphones Needed
We have a bid from IBS in Madison for 3 wireless microphones and 2 devices that will allow Pastor Brenda to play music or video without static. The total for these items will be about $2,200. Donations are needed to help defray the cost.

Weekend Meal Program
Bluejay Backpacks is a Cambridge school district program that sends easy to prepare foods home with kids in need over long weekends because many of these families do not have adults home to help cook meals. There are approximately 75 kids in the program today. Each month 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches/
dinners, 2 snacks and 2 cups of fruit/pudding are sent home with each child. Several congregations in the area will help supply food. EKLC will supply 75 pudding cups each month through May. Place pudding donations in the church food pantry box. Mark monetary donations with ‘backpacks’ and put in the offering plate or sent to the church office.

Area Senior Dining
Join others from our community at the Amundson Center on Tuesdays and Fridays at noon and enjoy a delicious healthy meal and conversation. Open to anyone over the age of 60. For questions and to make reservations please call 608-838-7117. (Reservations need to be made at least 24 hours before) Suggested donation of $4.
