    Childcare Director and Workers Needed: St. John’s Lutheran in Watertown is blessed to have a year round childcare center that serves families with children ranging from six weeks old through 8th grade. Our goal is to provide high quality, Christ-centered care and education in a loving, learning, and nurturing environment.

    St. John's is taking applications for a full-time childcare director. Additionally, as the childcare center continues to grow we are looking to add more individuals to fill other needed staff positions. There are various opportunities to help with this program including teachers or teaching assistants to work part time or up to 40 hours per week. St. John's offers competitive wages for all staff, and vacation benefits for full time workers.

    If you or someone you know is interested and would like more information on the responsibilities or hours, please visit www.sjwttn.org/employment or contact Chris Mueller at 920-261-3756 or email childcare@stjohnswatertown.org.

    DEAR MEMBERS: We were amazed by all of the Christian love and support shown to our family during Mom’s (Grandma’s, Great Grandma’s) battle with cancer and after she won her crown of Glory. All of the prayers, words of encouragement, hugs, beautiful cards, acts of kindness and the bounty amount of food at the funeral lunch were astounding. How proud and humbled we are to be a part of this church where there is such a strong support system and so many who possess a true servant’s heart. May God richly bless all of you as you continue to serve others. To God be the glory, The Arndt Family.

     

    Our Spring Rally: Many of you are aware that Sue Prothero, secretary for the Milwaukee Metro South Circuit, has recently retired and is moving out of the area. Since no one else raised their hand and volunteered to fill in for, I offered to be interim secretary until the end of April.

    Our Spring Rally will be on Saturday, April 21 beginning with a continental breakfast at 8 a.m. The site is: St. John's Lutheran Church, 7809 Harwood Ave., Wauwatosa, WI 53213

    For those who know we normally have our rallies on the fourth Saturday in April, there was a scheduling conflict at St. John's. They have something else at their church that day.

    POINSETTIAS: TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO ORDER YOUR FLOWERS  for Christmas. Order forms can be found in the narthex. Direct all questions to Jean Wentz.

     

    DECORATING FOR CHRISTMAS:  Sunday December 10th  we will have church decorating for Christmas. Lunch will be provided.  Jean put up a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the hallway, as we need a headcount for lunch.

     

    SECURITY: Given the rise of mass violence in society  today, we all need to be prepared to react in a threatening situation.  These situations can happen anywhere; the grocery store, the workplace, the movie theater, and even at church.
    Be aware of where the exits are.  Your best option if available is to run and scatter as far away from the threat as you can get. Do not huddle together and present an easy target.  If you can’t run, do you have the option to barricade and lock down? Lock the doors, turn off the lights, close the blinds,
    pile furniture against the door, move away from windows and doors and stay low. Call 911 as soon as it is safe for you to do.  Provide as much accurate information on the situation as you can.

    If those options are not open, then counter  the intruder with distraction, scattering, and if there is no other choice, fight back with whatever you have available.  If face to face, go for the weapon.

    The church council is working on a more extensive
    security plan.  If you have any questions or input, please speak with a member of the council.

    Reformation Family, This past week we had the opportunity to host 2 wonderful families at our church through Family Promise. We were able to witness two loving mothers, a very intelligent and mature 15-year-old, a shy but energetic 3-year-old, and a smiley 9-month-old. Ginny and I very much appreciate the tender care of our volunteers to either cook, bake, grill, clean, play or spend an overnight with our families. Just completing this rotation helped to reinforce the positive impact we have on these families.

    Our next host week will be 12/17 – 12/24. We would like to offer a class in November or early December for anyone wishing to become eligible to volunteer with the families either at our church or at the day center located in Wales. If you are interested please send an email to helwigandysheri@gmail.com. We can set a date and time for training with those interested. Any other questions may be directed to either Ginny, 262-363-4716 or Sheri, 262-370-2903

    Again, thank you for your time and commitment to this much needed resource. Sheri Helwig

    HEARTS FOR JESUS: According to the American Heart Association, every year in the U.S., there are approximately 424,000 cardiac arrests outside of a hospital setting and on average, just 5.2% of victims survive. Immediate CPR and early defibrillation provided by an AED can more than double As Reformation provides more community outreach and out of concern for our own members, we are going to purchase and install an AED at church.  “HEARTS FOR JESUS” is a new program begun to raise money to purchase and maintain an AED and provide education on CPR and a Healthy Heart lifestyle. Our goal is $3,000.00. Look for information in the very near future on special events.  Contact Paula Jessup for any questions. jessuprn@wi.rr.com or 262-965-2763.

    Luther Preparatory School presents their Children’s Theater performance of The Grateful Beasts, an interactive comedy inspired by the classic story “Stone Soup,” directed by Professor Timothy Wrobel. 

     

    In this play within a play, a crafty traveler with a flair for storytelling arrives at a village and has to persuade some stubborn farmers to contribute a few of their prized vegetables to his soup pot. The traveler tells the farmers the story of Lionel, a charitable farm lad who saves the lives of five unfortunate animals. Determined to seek his fortune in the big city, Lionel ventures forth with five silver coins his mother gave him for his journey. Along the way, Lionel buys a loyal hunting dog, a faithful horse, a cat with an attitude, a blues-singing nightingale, and a bear who hates puns, saving them from a certain death. When Lionel reaches the city, he discovers that an evil ogre has transformed King Percival into a rat, taken over the kingdom, and has his sights set on marrying Princess Bianca. It is up to Lionel and his animal friends to recover a magic wishing ring and save the kingdom from the clutches of the selfish ogre.
