MRS. VICKY BRANDENBURG has retired as our school administrative assistant after ten years of service. We will commemorate this fact in our services on Sunday, and in a reception between the services at 9:30 A.M. Please plan to join us to thank God and Vicky for her years of faithful service!

CHECK OUT THE ST. JACOBI “TAXI” board in the back of church if you need a ride or can provide a ride for someone, whether for church, or for other activities.

COPIES OF THE REVISED CONSTITUTION AND BYLAWS are available in the back of church for members to review. This is an updated version from what was made available previously; changes were made based on valuable member input.

THE GROUNDS AND MAINTENANCE GROUP is looking for 2 individuals who enjoy using their God-given talents to serve the Lord and St. Jacobi. You will be responsible for performing basic maintenance and service repairs in the church, school, and parsonage. You will also have the opportunity to oversee projects and service contracts on items that we utilize contractors on. You don’t have to be an expert in either; training is provided. If you are interested, please let one of the pastors know and/or contact Ryan Rayeske at 414-559-8004. Thank you!

KIDS’ CLUB MEETS AT 9:30 A.M.  We start off with large group devotion in the church sanctuary, then break off into individual classes. The Armory, which is the group for the older kids, meets in the small conference room. We could use donations of prepackaged snacks, including some gluten free, dairy free, and peanut free foods. Bring donations to the ushers’ room marked “Kids’ Club.” Thank you in advance! We are looking forward to another great year of learning and fun!

ONE BY ONE is a Bible study based on Pastor David Rosenau’s keynote presentation at the?WELS National Conference on Lutheran Leadership in January of 2020. Using powerful personal stories and drawing from his wealth of experience both as a detective and a parish pastor, Pastor Rosenau helps Christians understand why it is so important to see every soul as a treasure and why we want to be willing to spend the time and effort necessary to share the gospel with each one. Come to the large community room Sunday at 9:30 A.M. Besides food for the soul, there is also tasty food for the body!

LUTHERANS FOR LIFE is requesting donations of clean, gently-used or new winter clothing for their clients' families. Useful items would be jackets, coats, hats, and mittens.  Of particular need is toddler clothing of this sort, as well as pants and long-sleeved shirts in sizes 2T to 5T.  Other sizes would also be acceptable.  If you have any questions, please contact Pam Manske at 262-679-9575. Donations can be placed in the box in the atrium or in the school lobby.

PARENT INTEREST—THE ARMORY--Hello parents! I am hoping to expand The Armory Bible study group to include outside of Sunday worship/Bible class opportunities. With that, there might be some traveling involved and costs included with each event. I was hoping to get some feedback before planning the events so that I can ensur e there is support for what is needed to make this successful for our 6-12th graders (If enough students participate, we will divide it 6-8th and 9-12th.) Please fill out this survey accordingly (use the QR code to the left), and contact me if you have any questions! ~Mrs. Janelle Nitz (262)212-2318;

THE NEXT GAME NIGHT will be Sunday, November 21, 5-8pm. Our game will be “Bags” and we will be serving Chili. There will also be Childcare available in the school MPR, where the kids will have snacks and watch the movie “Sing”. Please sign up in the narthex if you plan to come since we will need the right number of bags and boards. We hope to see you there, and feel free to bring a friend!
