Thanksgiving Celebration/Pastor Appreciation
Sunday, November 24, after the Worship Service
While we are having our Thanksgiving celebration, we will also be honoring Brad and Mike for Pastor Appreciation Sunday. For the next three weeks there will be card/gift baskets for each pastor on the kitchen counter. Let’s fill those baskets and shower our pastors with words and gifts of appreciation and love!
Coat and Shoe Give-Away
Macy’s and DSW will be providing brand new shoes, coats and winter wear that we get to give away to people in our community! We are looking for 12 volunteers to operate the give-away that will be held on Tuesday night, December 3, from 4:00-10:00 at the Chippewa Falls High School Cafeteria. We expect to have over 300 coats donated! See Mike for more details.

You are welcome to worship in our Worship Hall, a new space in our building to gather for praising our Lord. The service in the Sanctuary is being streamed onto the screens in the Worship Hall, allowing people there to participate in singing, praying and learning along with the rest of the congregation. We hope this space facilitates worship in a new and meaningful way. We would appreciate it if you would give the Worship Hall a try and give us your input as we fine tune the details.
Because Every Person Matters to God
We believe that every person matters to God and that Landmark is a great place for people to find both God’s love and a Christian family they can be a part of. But people won’t know all this unless we spread the word! Here are some easy ways you can help get the word out.
Yard Signs – Place a yard sign in your front yard or anywhere else you’re allowed to. Be creative!
Invite Cards – Give the cards away to your friends or leave a trail of them wherever you go. You never know who God might direct to pick up one of these cards.
New Mover Cards - Postcards inviting new residents to Landmark will be going out at the end of each month to the 45 new movers closest to the church. Please be praying that God will move people to accept the invitation. And if you see someone recently moved in, welcome them to the neighborhood and invite them to church!
Mending the Soul
We offer small groups that assist people on their journey of healing from abuse. Contact the church for more information.
Hope Village – Help Needed
Hope Village has a number of needs at this time – would you consider how you might help?
1. We are looking for a project manager for a tiny house build – this person would plan out the house build, contact our volunteers and layout a work plan for our work dates.
2. Construction help – we need people to pound some nails and paint walls.
3. Mentors – we need people to mentor our guests. We normally have 2 mentors per guest so you share this role with one other person
4. Network Friends- just be a friend to one of our guest…Lunch? Bible Study? Give a ride?
5. Donate Items for our Auction – we are involved in Sold4U auctions – if you are cleaning your garage let us know – we may be able to turn your throw away items into funds.
Contact Mike at the church for more information.

KhunYuam Christian Youth Hostel – Student Sponsorship
Landmark Christian Church has partnered with the KhunYuam Christian Youth Hostel, in KhunYuam, Thailand since 2003. The youth hostel was created so that children that live in the mountainous regions of Northwest Thailand, specifically the Mae Hong Song Province, could attend school. Often times the village a student lived in did not have a school.
There are currently 80 students at the youth hostel; they range in age from 6-18. They live at the hostelmand attend school in KhunYuam during the school year but live with their parents when school is not in session.
Landmark has a sponsorship program and from time to time a new student needs a sponsor. The sponsorship is $15.00 per month – that $15.00 is used as follows; $5.00 is used to purchase rice for meals, $2.50 is used to provide items for their dorms, $2.50 goes directly to the student for spending money, $2.00 goes into a travel fund, $2.00 goes into a college scholarship fund and the last $1.00 goes into a fund for a Christmas celebration.
During the day, the students attend the local school appropriate for their age. During the evening, after doing their homework, the children are taught how to be followers of Jesus. The learn the Bible, pray and sing. The older students lead worship and prayer for both the younger students and for the local churches each weekend.
Members of Landmark Christian Church have been blessed to be able to visit the youth hostel, its students and staff every three years. We are currently working on a having a couple of the graduating students visit us here at Landmark each spring.
