THANK YOU FAITH ROOF FUND DONORS!

WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP

Still to be accomplished is the addition of more insulation in the Fellowship room so we aren't aren't out of the woods yet either financially or workwise.

Ceiling work in the Fellowship Room at Faith is in progress. A new ceiling, with new energy efficient lighting, in addition to insulation is being installed.

With additional costs on the horizon for calling a new pastor next year and possible upgrades to the parsonage Faith needs to reduce its debt as much as possible.

A $34,900 debt still remains from the roof project and members of Faith have received letters asking, once again, for an additional $300 (or ANY amount) donation  you can afford.

Financial considerations from other sources would be gratefully accepted as well.

The Annual Seniors appreciation service at Faith Is celebrated annually, October 4 in 2009.  Credit for taking charge and organizing this event in recent years is Patti Carter.  Patti's hard work and attention to every detail is very much appreciated! Here's Patti making sure everyone has what they need at the dinner has what they need at the dinner.

Below are some of the seniors Patti works so hard to honor.

As usual, where 2 or more Lutherans are gathered.......EATING is involved:

A HANDBELL CHOIR?

WHERE..........................HERE?

Even in large cities churches that sport handbell choirs are few and far between. The Stevens Point/Plover metro area, which population exceeds 35,000, can claim only two churches that have handbell choirs. They are St. Paul's United Methodist and St. Paul Lutheran Church so it's quite a bit deal for a smallish country church to muster enough dedicated folks to staff a handbell choir much less do a good job of it. The proof is at the links below!

The first link is for a 1:08 minute 2.89 meg Windows WMV video which shows the choir doing a portion of Silent Night (edited to 1:08 for size). The second link is for the entire performance with audio only, runs for 2:38 and is only 643KB in size and the third link is for their rendition of, appropriately, Carol of the Bells which runs for 2:11 and is 536KB in size.
