- Thanksgiving Baskets: Today is the last day we will be collecting a free-will offering for gift cards to be purchased for our Thanksgiving baskets. No food donations will be taken this year! These gift cards will be delivered to some members of our congregation who could use a little extra help at this special time of the year.

- Zilwaukee Anniversary: The members of St. John Lutheran Church of Zilwaukee invite you to join them in praising almighty God for 150 years of his free and faithful grace. A special anniversary worship service will take place in St. John’s sanctuary (318 So. Franklin Street in Zilwaukee) on Sunday afternoon, December 6th, beginning at 4:00 PM. The Rev. Mark Schroeder, president of our Wisconsin Synod, will serve as guest preacher. Mr. Ryan Friske, minister of music at Trinity Lutheran School in Bay City and director of the Saginaw Valley Lutheran Chorale, will be the guest organist. Following the worship service, a catered dinner will be served in the St. John Parish Hall.

The deadline for such requests is Friday, November 27th. Passes will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.
