NEXT WEEKEND
Veterans Day and Armed Forces Recognition
At worship, next weekend on November 13 & 14, active duty and veterans will be recognized.

Wear your uniform if you can.

Lapel pins from LCMS Ministry to Armed Forces will be given after worship.
Nest Collective Run/Swim Fundraiser
Run & Swim for the Nest is back! On November 13, POP's very own, Jerry Nepodal and Erin Summers will once again run and swim to raise money to support The Nest Collective's mission! Jerry's goal is to swim 300+ continuous minutes and Erin's goal is to run a half marathon.

The Swim-for-the-Nest and Run-for-the Nest fundraisers will allow us to meet one of our most basic, yet most impactful, needs.  ALL funds raised from the events will be used to provide complete bed sets (new mattress, frame, and bedding) to our most in-need clients.

Pick up your box today in the Church lobby!
UPCOMING EVENTS
POP Church Christmas Decorating
Bethlehem Olivewood Crafts at POP
On November 27-28, 2021, after each worship service, Dr. George Ghanem from the Holy Land Christian Solidarity Cooperative will be hosting a display of handmade olivewood carvings from Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Available for purchase will be olive wood nativity sets, crosses, Christmas ornaments, candle holders, angles, and more!

These carvings are handmade by Christian families in Bethlehem who rely on sales for their daily bread. For more than ten years Bethlehem Christians have been enduring many hardships as tourism in Bethlehem has plummeted and access to other sources of income has been sharply restricted due to the ongoing conflict and the COVID 19 pandemic. Many Christians left their homeland. The Christian population of the Holy Land went down from 30% in the last century to almost 1% today.

Please help support our Christian brothers and sisters in Bethlehem by purchasing their carvings. Proceeds go to support Christian artisans from Bethlehem. George Ghanem, an indigenous Christian from Bethlehem will be standing by the carvings after all the worship services. Let us keep Bethlehem a Christian town forever. It is never too late to help! Please visit our website to purchase your gifts online: www.holylandcsc.com
Saturday, December 4, 1:00 – 4:00 PM

The Care Ministry is offering a Grief Share program entitled "Surviving the Holidays."

Childcare will be provided for children under the age of 7 years old. A light dinner will be served. Cost: $15.00 to cover books and meal.
