Redactor Between Now and Spring Semester

Dear Gentle Reader, The Redactor will be on holiday  for the remainder of the year and through the January Term. The Redactor will be updated sporadically during that time, based on the volume of announcements. You can expect one more issue before we ring in 2015, and then two to three posts a week during January. As always, please submit your Redactor announcements (or questions) to Have a blessed and relaxful vacation!

Babysitter needed

Kristen and Jon Papson are looking for a babysitter for Tuesday evenings from 4:30 until 7 starting on Jan. 6. If you're interested and would be willing to hang out with our 7-week old daughter, please either talk with Kristen or Jon, or email Kristen at to discuss the details and payment. Thanks!

Got Scraps?

Do you have coffee grinds, egg shells, or fruit and veggie scraps from cooking? Well there are two compost bins between Heiges and Stempfle that would love to have them! Just dump them in the bin and your food trash will go to helping the community. Check out the link below to learn how easy composting is and why it matters to the environment.


There will be a service of Holy Communion at 9:30am on Christmas morning in the chapel, led by the Zimmann family. Of course, all are welcome, and you're welcome to come as you are – Dr. Denton's especially welcome!


Interested in leading worship during January? There are several prime dates available for volunteers – individuals or groups! Simply sign up on the list in the back of the chapel, and Pr. Oldenburg will be in touch with many resources and information about sharing planning with the cantor and sacristans. Any questions? Track down Pr. Oldenburg!
