WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR THE WEEK of DECEMBER 7, 2014
Mark your calendars for our mid-week Advent Services on Wednesdays, December 10th and 17th at 7pm. Join us before the services for a soup supper, beginning at 6pm. To volunteer to bring your specialty, contact John Lindemann at the church office or sign up on the Soup Supper sheet in the narthex. If needed, we will reimburse you for your ingredients.
Caroling in the Courtyard
Join us on December 14, following the 11a.m. service as we sing of good cheer to neighbors and passersby (and offer them a little hot chocolate and cookies). All ages and all voices welcome!
Lutheran Essentials – Wednesdays during Advent
We’ve been meeting for several weeks to discuss “The Spirituality of the Cross,” written by Gene Edward Veith, Jr. The book explores the author’s journey to becoming a Lutheran. We will continue to meet through Advent on Wednesday evenings, December 3rd, 10th, and 17th, following the 7p.m. service (we’ll take a break for Christmas and New Years, and dive back into the book on the 7th of January).
Even if you’ve missed our gatherings, please join us. The book for the study, as well as copies of the Book of Concord, are provided free of charge. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor, the Elders or Paul Edmon.
While We’re Planning Ahead
The next FLC Voters’ Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, January 18, 2015, following the 11am service. We look forward to having voters, those who want to be voters, and members of the congregation join together to review and make decisions about the business of the church.
Altar Flowers and Coffee Hour
There are still many openings for both Altar Flowers and Coffee Hour sponsors after the 11am service! Sign-up sheets can be found on the bulletin board in the hallway next to the church office.
Help FLC on Sunday mornings by serving as an usher or lector! To usher, speak with or email Head Usher David Litke (firstname.lastname@example.org) or speak with any of the ushers To lector, let Ron Eisner (at email@example.com) or any of the Elders know if you’re interested.
