We still need spiral notebooks to fill the school bags for Lutheran World Relief. Because of members generosity, we have plenty of everything else to fill our goal of 200 bags.
WE NEED SCHOOL SUPPLIES TO FILL 200 LUTHERAN WORLD RELIEF
SCHOOL KITS. CAN YOU HELP? Even though it seems like Summer has
barely begun the school supply lists are in stores and the weekly adds are
offering sale prices on school supplies. Please take advantage of these sale
offerings and help complete our goal of 200 school kits. In order to complete
200 school kits we will need: blunt scissors, pencil sharpeners, boxes of
crayons, erasers, notebooks, pencils, and pens. With smart shopping $5
will complete a bag and give a child the chance of going to school and the
chance to change the world. ***Shopko has 50¢ Crayola crayons (limit 4) and
19¢ notebooks (limit 18). This is a very good deal but we need many trips to
meet our needs. So if you are out shopping please consider picking up some.
(Place supplies in drop off box in narthex)
With some donations already in and a few excess supplies from last year,

OR if you are someone who will be helping to lead any aspect of Sunday School,
please plan on attending one of the following meetings. We will go over crucial
information about our child protection policy, parent handbook, and volunteer
handbook. Attending one of these meetings will help us all get off to a great start in
Sunday School this year! Please RSVP to Pastor Kristin (930-452-4771 or

meeting you can attend. Please talk to Pastor Kristin if you have any questions.

Rally Sunday – Job Fair
Once again Shalom will host a Job Fair on Rally Sunday (September 10th) to give all teams
the chance to tell the congregation what they do, answer questions, and accept new members!
Team leaders will be contacted in the next few weeks – but it’s ok to start planning now!
Are you ready to Rock?!?!?!
Shalom has tickets to see the Broadway musical School of
Rock! We’ve got 20 tickets – first come, first serve. We will
then have a waiting list and will try to get additional tickets.
When: Saturday 11/25/2017 – 2pm
Where: Marcus Center in Milwaukee
Cost: $59/ticket – due upon sign up
The attendees can discuss car pooling as we get closer.
Based on the film and with a rocking new score from Andrew Lloyd Webber, School of
Rock follows slacker Dewey Finn as he turns a class of straight – A students into an earpopping,
riff-scorching, all-conquering rock band! As they prepare for the Battle of the Bands,
can Dewey make them embrace the empowering message of rock?
