CHRISTMAS DIORAMA PLANS
It’s not to early to start thinking about being a part of the Diorama! WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! Volunteers to play the roles of Mary, Joseph, Shepherds, Angels, Citizens, Tax Collectors, Roman Soldiers and Wise Men. A MINIMUM of 86 people per night are needed to fill all of the roles. Don’t like the cold? We have a spot for you! You can work the warming trailer making sure the food is available. Food donations are also greatly appreciated! We also need people to help dress and undress the participants before and after participating in Riverside Park. St. Paul’s weekend is December 2 & 3. Sign up sheets will be coming out in October. For more information, please contact Miss Bauer, 608-461-0125
ALTAR FLOWERS are placed today in memory of Raymond Horstman by Bonnie Horstman.
A NOTE OF THANKS TO THE MEMBERS OF ST. PAUL’S:
Thank you for the generosity that you showed to us. We are grateful for all the gifts and food that you graciously gave. We also enjoyed socializing over cake and coffee during fellowship hour. I am thankful for the opportunity to teach here at St. Paul’s and consider it a great privilege. In Christ, Eric & Kimberly Duve
