Announcements & Upcoming Events

ADVENT SERVICES CONTINUE Thursdays at 6:30pm in Verona
Mondays  at 7:00pm  in Monroe


WELS Mission Journeys, the official WELS program for short-term mission trips, provides an opportunity for all WELS members to walk together in the Great Commission. Through church- or school-based volunteer trips to WELS mission fields at home and abroad, mem-bers have the opportunity to engage in Christian service. With the Lord’s blessing, these trips will inspire a lifelong journey of service and outreach for all who volunteer. Want to learn more about how you can get involved? Visit wels.net/missionjourneys.


Are you looking for a way to serve the Lord and your church? We need more people to serve as Ushers Thursday evenings in Verona. Ushering is very easy and does not require a lot of time, however it is an important part of the service. For more infor-mation contact Randy Munson at 608-320-4321, email rlmun-son@wisc.edu; or Jeff Hartmann at Jeffer2@hotmail.com. Or speak to one of the pastors after a service.


Is there church if weather is bad?

If weather is bad, be safe. Stay home if you don’t feel safe coming to church. We do not cancel church for bad weather. Pastors can make it to the church and will do so. Be safe. Stay home if you don’t feel safe coming to church.

If you have a duty that day, such as ushering, greeting, bringing treats, we can cover it. And there will probably be less of a need in bad weather.

Be safe. Stay home if you don’t feel safe coming to church.


Any articles, photos, announcements etc. that you would like in the newsletter need to be submitted to the Ministry Coordinator (Kathy) before end of day Friday, December 14th, at ministrycoordinator@rlcverona.com.


Our youth group has many denominations of Kwik Trip gas cards on hand for easy gift-giving and all your travel needs over Christmas and the New Year. Please see Denise Reimer or Katrina Meinel to purchase cards and help support our youth group. Thank you!


Additional cleaning team is needed. Please contact John Deegan, property@rlcverona.org to get a complete list of instructions. In a nutshell, your team of 2-6 individuals cleans the church, narthex, bath-rooms, fellowship hall and education wing 6 times a year. It keeps our space looking great and more welcoming to visitors; while at the same time saving the congregation the expense of hiring a professional cleaning service. Its also fairly flexible, your team sets a time that works best for your schedule and families can easily include kids with this worthwhile use of time & talent.


Saturday, December 15, 8:30-10:00am. Just before Christmas for Kids.


 Book club will not meet in December.  

 • The Alice Network by Kate Quinn      
    Tuesday, January 15th, 7:00 p.m.

One-million souls. C18 is a synod wide effort to reach 1 million.  Yes, 1 million people with the good news of great joy that is for all people.  We have a Savior Jesus.  If everyone in our synod invites just 3 people to Christmas Eve worship or Christmas for kids that goal will be achieved.  Can you image 1 million people invited to hear the good news?!  Postcards are available at both campuses to help you invite your friends, neighbors, and co-workers.  Additional materials and updates are available from our synod at welscongregationalservices.net/c18.


Advent means coming. It’s the time of year when we get ready for the coming of Christ-mas. This year we will have special services to prepare our hearts for the coming of our Savior.

Advent Suppers in Verona will be on Thursdays at 5:30pm and the services will be held at 6:30pm  December 13. These will serve as our Thursday Worship for those weeks. Please note December 20 will also be Christmas Eve early.

Vietnam – Hmong Outreach
God’s grace has opened doors to an unprecedented mission opportunity in communist Vietnam.

It all started when Zang Lou, a leader within the Hmong Fellowship Church (HFC) in Vietnam, viewed an online sermon by WELS Pastor Bounkeo Lor in 2011. The clear proclamation of law and gospel and the message of pure grace through Jesus Christ was something he had never heard before . . . and he wanted to learn more. That same year, Zang Lou invited Lor to come to Vietnam to train the HFC in the truth of the gospel. Lor made his first training visit in 2012. Since that time, Lor has made over 24 different trips to Hanoi, Vietnam. To assist in his training, members of the Pastoral Studies Institute (PSI) began to accompany him on some of these trips starting in 2016....

RLC Cookbook
I am trying to create an online Cookbook of RLC recipes that you can share with friends and family on Facebook or via a website. This cookbook will serve as an easy inreach / outreach ministry, we are after all a church that loves fellowship, a great meal and sharing the love of Christ.

You can email a recipe to Recipe@Rlcnotes.com. A recipe should include the following...
  • Your Name
  • Ingredients and measurements
  • Directions
  • A photo (not required but your phone is just sitting there)
  • A brief note about why this is special
Example of notes...
...I made this slaw as a hamburger topping for our Vine and Branches Group and it was gone before the burgers came off the grill...

...My aunt Laura refused to share this recipe, so I volunteered to help her make it one day and wrote it down when she stepped out of the kitchen. She is in Heaven now so think about her when serving this...

This should be fun,
Ken    ...more
