Capitol Drive News
**Third World Handcraft Shoppe Needs You!!**
As we mentioned in the last couple weeks, Bridget
left the Shoppe to pursue a new position elsewhere,
and while we are in transition, we are going to need
lots of help filling in volunteer slots. The Shoppe is
an important ministry of the congregation, and we
need to show our support to keep it open in the next
few months. We need volunteers both for in-shop
hours, and for off-site sales. Our most pressing need
is for volunteers on Wednesdays. The shop is open
from 9:30-12:30 (in Oct), or 9:30-3:30 (Nov-Dec).
Please sign up on the sheet in back if you are
willing to volunteer in the next couple of months,
to help keep the Shoppe going strong!
Simmering Sunday
Lunch, & Conversation
Pastor Joe Ellwanger has
long been an icon for race
and justice ministry in the
city of Milwaukee. His
prophetic witness through
the Civil Rights Movement
and turbulent years in
Milwaukee as an inner city pastor are captured in his
recent book “Strength for the Struggle.” Pastor Joe
joins us for a conversation about race, justice, and
ministry in Milwaukee. You won’t want to miss it!
Women’s Guild
Women’s Guild meets this Tuesday, Nov. 4 in the
Lounge. Our hostess this month is Nita Matter—please
call her with questions.
Sunday Nov 9, 2014
Kids’ Klub—November 12, 5-6 pm
All elementary students, K5-6th grade, are invited to
attend Kid’s Klub on Wednesday Nov 12th from
5-6pm. Kids join the Pastor and adult volunteers for a
time of Bible lessons, crafts, activities, and games. At
6pm, families can join the Kid’s Klub kids for dinner,
$2/person. If you would like to be one of our
volunteers for the night, please sign up in the back!
Just a friendly reminder: If you have not yet
turned in your 2015 Stewardship and Capital Fund
Appeal Commitment cards, please
do so this week. You may turn them
in to the offering plate, or mail them
to the church office. There are extra
cards on the back hospitality table.
Thank you!
Thursday Nov. 27
Thanksgiving at the Boathouse
Bring a dish to share and join us for a morning of
thanks, song, and friends.
Boathouse at Brown Deer Park (7835 N. Green Bay Rd.)
Thanksgiving Worship & Meal
On Wed, November 26th, you are invited to join us for
a Thanksgiving worship service in the sanctuary at
11am. We will be joined by our friends from The
Gathering Place. Following worship, everyone is
invited to stick around for a festive meal. No need to
RSVP. Hope to see you there!
Dear CDLC friends,
The Discernment Team has been reading a book
entitled “The Future Starts Now.” In it, we were
encouraged to see how our whole model of being has
been centered around scarcity thinking— if only we
had ____, we could do/be ____. And so we try to fill
in all the blanks. But, what would happen if we took a
step back, and stopped trying to fix problems or meet
needs? What if we began by trying to know more
deeply who we are in Christ, and what God’s plan for
us is? What then?
District 7 Faith Based Initiative Meeting
This month we meet at Albright UMC (next door) on
Thurs Nov 6th, from 5:30-7pm. If you’d like to get
more involved with other faith-based groups in keeping
our community happier, healthier, and safer, then
please come along!
You’ll notice in worship a new installation
piece— our Renewal Dream Board. The Discernment
Team will be helping lead us in envisioning what the
future could look like. And we will invite you to add
to the board as well!
Make a Difference Day Sat Nov 8th
Our EPiC friends are all meeting to help seniors in our
immediate church neighborhoods from 9-12 on Sat.
Nov. 8. We will be raking, light yard work, and other
things to help seniors winterize. Please sign up on the
sheet in the back so we can organize volunteers.
BE WHO YOU ARE. Before any strategic plan,
before any asset-mapping, before any renewal can
begin, we start by prayerfully discerning how we can
be used to do God’s will. Because we are all gifted
and blessed, we each have a part to play in God’s plan.
And so does our church... So, what is it? What is our
mission? Being clear about who we are and what
really matters to us is essential if we want to meaningfully do what matters to God. So— who are
you? Who is CDLC? What is our purpose?
GIRL RISING: Film, Activities, Lunch
Girls AGES TEN AND OLDER, and the women in
their lives, are invited to come explore the education of
girls through a world lens. Join us Saturday, November
22, 2014, 10am-2pm at Body and Soul Healing Arts
Center, 3617 N. 48th Street, Milwaukee. See flyer in
back for more info.
SEE WHAT YOU HAVE. Sometimes the trouble
with “seeing what we have” isn’t that we don’t have,
it’s that we can’t see. Do we see where God is loose
in the world? Do we see what resources, passions, and
gifts are in our church and in the community at large?
Sunday Afternoon Worship by GST @ Luther Manor
For the next 3 weeks, Nov 2-16, Good Shepherd
Trinity is taking Sunday Worship to Luther Manor at
3:00pm. All are invited for Sunday afternoon worship and help bring a senior resident that needs assistance
down the hall to worship.
DO WHAT MATTERS. Once we are clear about
God’s purposes for us, and then see what God’s
already working and lifting up in our communities,
then we will start to have a sense about the direction
God is headed with us. Ideas for action will emerge.
“Curtains” the Musical—an all ages event
Where can you go and see a murder mystery, a wild
west saloon dance, a Kansas square dance, a 1950’s
night on the town, and MERMAIDS?? “Curtains” the
Musical is coming to Wauwatosa East High School—
and the EPiC churches are meeting there on Friday
November 21 for the 7pm show—come and see Livia
Quinn in the show and the 210+ costumes that Lisa
Quinn designed. Tickets are $15 adult/$12 senior and
s t u d e n t . B u y yo u r t i c k e t s a t : h t t p : / /
www.tosaeasttheatre.org or call 866-967-8167.
Our hope is that with this visual plotting of our
vocations and assets this congregation will be
convicted in its mission to be set free to use our gifts in
ways that make a real difference in this church which
we care about.
Starting the Future with You Now,
Pr Alexis
