We will be setting up the Fellowship Hall to accommodate 173 diners.  To be sure that you and your guests will be able to be seated when you arrive, please pick up a FREE ticket for each person in your party.  We’ll also keep track of the people to whom we give tickets and how many tickets we’ve given away.  The ticket table will be set up after worship on November 24, December 1 and 8, or until all tickets are gone. In addition, we are asking for a crew of helpers and chefs who will be instrumental in making the event a success.  There are two signup opportunities; one for being part of the crew of helpers and the other for saying what food you’ll prepare.  The Congregational Life  Ministry sincerely hopes you will join us for this festive occasion and thanks you in advance for your assistance.

 

New Members/Inquirer’s Class today and Sunday, December 1st 11:30a in the Chapel Room.  Join Pastor Dennis for about an hour if you are interested in joining First Lutheran or just have some questions.  We hope to welcome new members to FLC on December 8, 15 or 22??

 

Wednesday Holden Evening Prayer Services in Advent Half hour worship services during the season of Advent will be on Wednesday nights at 7:00pm, December 4, 11 and 18.  These are half hour services of scripture, prayer and song. During the hectic month of December, you are invited to take a brief time-out for worship and it’s always great to sing Holden Evening Prayer together.
