WELCOME TO  ST. ANNE’S

The St. Anne’s family welcomes you to our worship service this morning.  If you are a visitor, please complete the Visitor Card in the book holder in front of you.  You may then drop the card in the offering or give it to one of ushers.  Thank you for worshiping with us today.

BLESSING BOX DONATIONS

There is now an easy way to stock our Little Free Library with new, quality children’s books!  Kellogg’s is now offering an extremely generous program where we need only to purchase ONE food item and they will give back one book.  Kellogg’s and Keebler foods are both included in this offer.  All we need to do is save the receipts.  Connie Skinner will collect receipts and send the photos to be processed.  Or, you can register them yourselves at Feedingreading.com  The deadline is October 30, so we need to get busy.  Imagine our little library full of good reading!  Thanks, everyone.

IT’S FLU SEASON

October is passing quickly, and flu season is upon us. While the cases of flu are not significant in Iowa yet, public Health officials are predicting a serious flu season.

Seasonal Flu affects young children, persons over 65 years if age and persons with chronic diseases more than other individuals. This describes several of the parishioners at St. Anne’s. Even if you never get the flu, you can be a “carrier” of the virus in your respiratory tract. This means that you may not have observable symptoms, but you can affect other susceptible individuals.

Please be considerate of your fellow parishioners and others in your environment who may be susceptible to the flu and GET YOUR FLU SHOT NOW!  Joann Olson

ST. ANNE’S CHILI COOK OFF

Mark your calendars!  St. Anne’s will host a Chili Cook Off on Saturday, November 9th from 3:00 to 5:00 pm at St. Anne’s.   There will be a silent auction, including home baked goods, homemade items, etc.  A sign-up sheet is coming! Watch future announcements for details.

Please consider signing up to assist with the chili cook off! We are asking for a free will donation but everyone who helps gets free chili!

GIVING SUNDAY

Giving Sunday is coming up on Sunday, November 17.  This is the day we will be having a potluck lunch to celebrate our giving in thanks for what we have been given.  Please begin giving thought to your pledge for 2020.  Give generously to keep St. Anne’s and all the programs active!

PROJECT FEWD CLOTHING DONATION

Donations of gently used winter clothing items are needed for students in P-K through grade 12.  If you have clothing to donate, please bring your items to St. Anne’s before October 27 and place them in the box in the Parish Hall.  Donated items will be transported to the donation site.

LAWN MOWING

St. Anne’s is in need of a small, self-propelled “push” lawn mower.  Please let Jim Wettestad know if you have one to donate. Volunteers are still needed to mow for the rest of the season. Many hands make light work!
