This newsletter is published monthly. Dear Friends in Christ, Did you know that the word advent literally means “arrival”? So during the season of Advent, Christians are focused and preparing for an arrival: Christ’s arrival. We prepare to celebrate His first arrival in Bethlehem, but even more importantly, we also prepare for His second arrival, His final arrival to judge the living and the dead. I want to share a true story about a man named Mike Hanzas, who had become meticulous about being prepared. Two years before his death, Mike, who lived alone, began to make preparations for his demise. He bought a lot in the cemetery. Weekly, he visited the site where his mortal remains would be laid to rest. He planted grass there and mowed it regularly. On Memorial Day, he place flowers on his own grave site, for he said, “I want to see flowers there now. I won’t be able to see them when I’m gone!” A while later Mike went into a funeral home. “I want to buy a casket which will be my new home,” he said. Whenever he passed the funeral home he would go in. Standing beside the casket he would say, “That’s where I’m going to live someday!” One day Mike invited his whole family to come to see him. After a very hearty meal, Mike began to dispense some canned goods and personal effects among his family members. Then he handed his nephew his will. As he did this, he dropped dead of heart failure! As far as we can tell, Mike Hanzas made every possible preparation for his body, but none for his soul. What do we need to learn from Mike Hanzas? The season of Advent is more that just preparing to celebrate Christmas. It must be about preparing the soul to meet Jesus at His second Advent. A soul is prepared through sincere and heartfelt repentance. A soul is prepared when it has been heartily fed with God’s Word and Sacrament. A soul is prepared when meeting Christ is the first and primary concern in the daily routine. To prepare us for Jesus first Advent, God made promise after promise, prophecy after prophecy, and yet the world was largely unprepared for His arrival. To prepare for His second Advent, God has made promise after promise and prophecy after prophecy, and yet are we truly and fully prepared for His arrival? Make this Advent season about more that shopping, parties, and decorating. First prepare the soul, decorating it with God’s Word, celebrating in God’s house with extra services, and filling it with all His graces, which, simply put, money could never buy. In Christ’s love, Executive Committee Redeemer Lutheran Church Executive Board Meeting Minutes November 11, 2014 The meeting was called to order at 6:30p.m. by Chairman Randy Pfister and opened with a devotion led by Pastor Pett. The minutes from the October meeting were approved as written. Pastor’s report: During October Pastor led (7) adult bible classes; (4) Confirmation classes; and (1) chapel service at Trinity. There were (8) hospital visits; (11) home visits; (3) nursing home services; and (3) counseling sessions.

Elder’s report: Dates for a possible Elders’ retreat weekend were discussed. A member asked if there would be a Christmas program or some kind of recognition for the Sunday School. A brief discussion was held and different ideas discussed. Tim Ahtonen will talk to the confirmation class to see if any of them would be willing to help out. While planning services for 2015, it was decided the have a New Year’s service on Wednesday, December 30, 2015 and no service on December 31, 2015. Pastor Pett brought up various outreach needs in our community that may be addressed by utilizing our facilities. School board report: GBLSA will be doing concessions at a few UWGB girls’ basketball games to raise money for athletics. The board is currently working on changing the policy regarding tuition payment. A letter for zoning requirements for a pre-k at Redeemer has been composed. The board recommends continuing the tuition assistance for the next school year. The family that was receiving the community scholarship from Redeemer has left Trinity. It was decided by the executive board to continue the scholarship for the second semester. The family(ies) will be chosen by Trinity. Board of Mission & Ministry report: They will again host a social time between the Wednesday services during Advent. A Giving Tree will be going up soon to help St. John’s shelter. Dates for Vacation Bile School are being looked at. They are checking to see if anyone is handling the cradle roll. They are also looking into getting some Redeemer apparel.

Total expenses paid were $30,561. Currently the mortgage balance is $383,903 and the Cougar Care balance is $41,999. Old Business: Several board positions are still open. Currently the constitution states that terms are to be one year with a three term max. The board will present a proposal to the congregation at the next congregational meeting to change the constitution so terms will be two years with a two term max as well as to eliminate the position of congregation vice-chair. A list of members who did not respond to the letter sent them regarding excommunication will be published. New Business: The results of the survey concerning Redeemer’s future some members were asked to take were looked at by the executive board and elders.

Name tags will be available for members who wish to purchase them for a nominal fee, probably about $4.00. Pastor stated that our Benevolent Fund is low. It was decided that a door offering will be taken on the Sunday before and Sunday after Thanksgiving to help replenish it. There have been numerous problems with the copy machine, and because of its age it can no longer be repaired. A refurbished one can be purchased for $1500. A motion was made and seconded to purchase the refurbished copy machine. Motion passed. The next Executive Board meeting will be on Tuesday, December 2, 2014 with a social beginning at 5:30 p.m. The Congregational meeting will be on Sunday, December 7, 2014 at noon.

Answer (from the Lutheran School Portal www.luthed.org): To Nurture the Children’s Faith Faith is nurtured by daily proclamation of the Gospel, teaching children the Word of God and how to read and understand that Word on their own, and by modeling and challenging students to live the Christian faith. We live in a changing society where instant gratification and pleasure are gaining importance , while traditional family and moral values are declining. A society where the dehumanization of people (born and unborn) is constantly assaulting us. In the face of these societal changes one thing becomes evident – the importance of having a Christian worldview and strong Christian faith. On a daily basis the teachers and staff at Green Bay Trinity work with parents, developing a strong faith foundation in their children by “nurturing mind and spirit”. It is a foundation rooted in the absolute truth that Jesus Christ sacrificed himself and was raised to forgive our sins and grant us eternal life. For as St. Paul points out in his letter to the Romans, “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this; while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) It’s a foundation that teaches that what is right and what is wrong is identified in God’s Word and that such a foundation is timeless, consistent and reasonable for “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8) As an Association we have the opportunity to provide that Christian worldview to families in the greater Green Bay area. Assist us in fulfilling our mission of reaching all children in the community by spreading the word about Green Bay Trinity Lutheran as an option. Encourage families to look us up on the web (http://greenbaytrinity.org), on Facebook (http://facebook.com/ gbtrinityluth), and on Twitter (http://twitter.com/gbtrinityluth). Suggest they contact the school at 655-4673 to set up a visit or attend the Open House in January. “For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given” (Isaiah 9:6) Have plans on Monday evening, December 15? The students of Green Bay Trinity invite you to attend their Christmas program at 6:30 pm at Our Saviour. Hear the Christmas message as we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior.
