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. Two new members
were added: Jodi Davis was reinstated, and David Fenner through adult confirmation.
There was one funeral, Andrea Fredrickson. Transfers out included Steve & Susan Perz, Tara and Stephanie to Peace
Lutheran in Green Bay; John & Linda Ludolph, Timothy and Peter to Pilgrim Lutheran in Suamico; and Naomi Aberg to Peace
Lutheran in Eau Claire.
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.
Board of Property report: Water heaters in the front of church will be changed out. The downspouts are being buried; the
parking lot will be resurfaced in spring. The replacement door for the north side of the school is here and will be installed
soon.
Financial report: Offerings for October totaled $26,762, and total income for the month was $31,627. 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. Randy Pfister, Dan Schrieber, Jim Wirch, and Pastor Pett will meet to go over the findings
more closely and decide where to go from there.
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.
Meeting adjourned at 8:50 p.m. and closed with prayer.
Respectfully submitted,
Jodie Ellingson
Congregation Secretary

CARDS FOR VETERANS
Yes it’s that time again for remembering our retired and
current VETERENS by adding CHRISTmas in their lives
with a brief message of thanks.
Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
We are joining with another group and together we will
be able to not only get cards to Milwaukee and King, but
to current overseas military (via the Red Cross) plus
nursing homes and hospitals locally. This will spread the
message out, benefiting more veterans with Christian
messages and our thanks. All we’re asking for is a few
minutes of your time. We know everyone is busy--but
please remember these men and women served years
so that we could enjoy the freedoms available to us that
we know.
We still need all the cards we can get and appreciate
them, we’ve had boxes of new cards from some of you,
thank you for your generosity, and please add your
message whenever possible, it is of so much help, even
if it’s only one message. GOD BLESS and THANK YOU
are powerful words.
Some of the cards are flattened---these are for the Red
Cross, they check the contents before packaging them
and sending them to current military men and women
serving our country and us overseas. Please keep them
flat---they will be taken care of in Washington by the Red
Cross.
Cards for signing are always available in the Narthex,
grab a pack, take them home, sign them and bring them
back. Thank you for your help--I know the Vets do
appreciate getting them. Thank you for your help!!!
God Bless and have a great day!

Green Bay Lutheran School Association
Green Bay Lutheran School Association/Trinity Update
Question: Why operate a Lutheran school? 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.

aspects of the event being planned. Please prayerfully consider supporting the auction attending, becoming an event sponsor,
and/or donating “new” items to this major fundraiser for Trinity Lutheran School. Look for more information on this special event
soon.
We are still looking for an auctioneer for this year’s event, if you know someone who would be available and willing to
donate their time please contact myself via email or the school at 655-4673.
December GBLSA Board Meeting
The next meeting of the GBLSA Board of Directors is scheduled for December 22 at 6:30 pm.
If you would like to address the Board, please contact me to be placed on the agenda.
As always please keep the Association and Green Bay Trinity in your prayers, asking that God would guide us to do His will.
God’s Blessings!
