Christmas Events!

Sign up to play an instrument for the Christmas Program. Psalm 98:4 says, "Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.” Every Christmas we hear many joyful noises, especially during our Christmas program, which will take place this year on Saturday, December 15, at Lee’s Summit North High School. If you would like to be one of those joyful noises in the instrument ensemble, please contact Jay Watson by November 4 ( or 816-506-3044). Saturday morning rehearsals will take place at 9am on November 10, 17; December 1, 8.

Every year Metro Lutheran Ministry provides a merry Christmas for up to 900 low income families through its Christmas Store. We are once again collecting gifts for the Christmas Store. Please consider taking an ornament from the tree in the narthex and purchasing the gift listed on it to share with families who rely on the Christmas Store for gifts for their loved ones. Gifts should be dropped off unwrapped by no later than noon on Sunday, November 25. Please contact Dona Chaney if you have any questions.
