*Be mindful that everyone has different comfort levels with proximity and physical contact.

Wednesday Weeders - I would like to thank everyone for their participation this year. You are a blessing to this church and it would not look as lovely as it does without all your help. Beth

FAITH FORMATION UPDATES

Play games and learn what the 10 Commandments teach us about who we are, what God does, and how the gospel empowers us to live!
(11/13) FMSC Service Project
Serve w/friends at intergen. event!
Women’s Bible Study: We are beginning an Advent study on November 16th called Daily Discipleship. We will be following the story in the Gospel of Luke. In January we will start a new book called “From Daughters to Disciples” by Lynn Japinga. If you have questions please feel free to contact Carol Wojnarowski. New participants are always welcome.
Feed My Starving Children Update: All of our spots are filled! Please plan to be at the Libertyville Feed My Starving Children Packing Facility by 8:45 on November 13. Remember not to wear any jewelry and to wear a mask while in the facility. Please do not come if you are feeling sick on that day or have recently been exposed to Covid. The food we will be packing is for very vulnerable children and we do not want to make anyone sick. If you have any questions, please call Sue Koenig.
Harvest Sunday: Our tradition of donating fresh produce for the residents of Mt. St. Joseph will continue again this year, on Sunday, November 21. You can bring your produce on that day and place it on the altar. After our second service, the food will be tallied and delivered by any available Sunday school students and their parents. A treat at Culver's will follow!
Northern Illinois Food Bank: Due to Covid, changes have been made in some of the places we typically donate to during the holidays, i.e. The Culver's Thanksgiving Meal for Those in Need and the St. Francis de Sales Food Pantry. Instead of participating in those programs, during the month of November, we are encouraging anyone who is interested to donate to the Northern Illinois Food Bank. If you like you can write a check to Peace, with Northern Illinois Food Bank in the memo section and we will send one check at the beginning of December or you can send it directly to them at 273 Dearborn Court, Geneva IL 60134.For every $1 you can help provide $8 worth of nutritious groceries for local families, children and seniors. They are seeing about a 20% higher demand for food than before Covid 19 began. Let's help solve the hunger problem in our community.
Christmas Gift Giving for Children: served by Lutheran Social Services: LSSI has asked if Peace could provide Christmas gifts for 38 of the children who are served by programs that LSSI provides such as those in foster care. There is now a "giving tree" on a bulletin board in the hallway with these childrens' names and gift ideas on it. Just take off the top ornament, write your name on the ornament below, buy your present and bring the gift back no later than Dec. 12. Please put your gift in a gift bag if at all possible as they tend to be a little sturdier and these gifts will be moved around a bit! Put your child's name on the present but leave the "from" part blank or put a question mark. Place your gift in the church office. There is no minimum or maximum that you need to spend as the children will receive the gifts individually so it doesn't matter if the value of the gifts is not the same. Please try to purchase at least one item on their wish list if you are able. For further directions, check the bulletin board or contact Sue Koenig
Operation Warm: Thank you to all who donated to Operation Warm to provide new winter jackets for local children in need. We donated $600 to the Chapel for their jacket event on Nov. 13, from 10-1. If your child needs a jacket or if you know of someone who needs one, please register at either the Lake Zurich or Palatine Chapel location by going to their website. Jackets are available in size 2T to 18 (kid sizes). Please contact Sue Koenig if you have any questions.
Membership team: Thanks to all of you who have completed the time/talent surveys. Deadline for completion is today, Thursday, November 4th. Our church needs the time, energy and commitment of all our members.
