American Lutheran Church is gearing up for LIVING NATIVITY, held on Wednesday, December 14th.  The night will start at 5:00 PM with a soup/chili supper put on by the Youth and Family Board. Between 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM, enjoy other events.  Outside, drive or walk past the front of the church to catch a view of the stable, see the animals, or take a carriage ride. Visit inside to see the animals, enjoy musical selections, and visit the youth bake sale. There will also be an opportunity to donate to the Sharing Center. Come join in the festivities. All are welcome!

HOLIDAY MUSICAL SELECTIONS! Vocal and instrumental music is already in the air.  It is time to sign up to share for either LIVING NATIVITY, DECEMBER 14TH or CHRISTMAS EVE WORSHIP SERVICES on December 24th at 3:00 PM, 5:00 PM, and 10:00 PM.   Please check out the sign-up sheet on the Worship bulletin board located in the office hallway. Thank you for sharing your talents at ALC!

ALC MEN’S GROUP: We have met twice, once to watch the Vikings on a Monday night, and once to play cribbage and eat pizza. At some point during each event we have someone talk about issues men may face and have a little discussion and then we get back to our activity. Because we had so much fun playing cribbage we will be playing it again at ALC at 6:30pm on December 15th and all adult men are invited.
