             We’ll plan to leave the church Fri 2/1 at 4 pm and return to church Sat at 4 or 5 pm.  It’s a really fun time!  Please, sign up on the board!

 

Church Phone Directory Update: Do you have a new address, phone number, email address that you would like included or other changes?  If so, please stop by the free-standing bulletin board in the Fellowship Hall to make the changes for our 2019 Directory.  The annual publication isn’t just for members, but for members and friends of First Lutheran Church.  If you don’t see your name and would like to be in the directory, please add your name to the list.  Please put a check mark, next to your name to show that you have checked to make sure that your information is correct.  Thank you! Photo board. If your smiling face is not in the photo board in the fellowship hall, we would like it to be!  It helps us get to know each better.  Please submit a photo or email to church.  P.S.

FLC Youth (6th grade to 12th grade)

 

 

Today!  Trip to Fused!  Leave the church at 1 pm to make sure the first group gets to the cutting table on time!  $10 participation fee required, plus be sure to have your own spending money as well!

 

Congrats to our brave youth who tried out for the Winter Musical.  This year is a tough one to get in!

 

Coming soon:  PJ Pancake breakfast on January 1 at 9 am!  Come for the homemade pancakes in your pjs - stay for the syrup!
