Thank you to Sheila Johnson for preaching today.

Pastor Dennis will be on vacation December 26-January 2. In an emergency please contact the church office 925-2844 or Dennis cell phone 929-2927.

FLC Office will be closed December 26-Januay 2nd.

Sunday School classes will NOT meet for three Sundays during the Christmas Season: December 15 (Christmas Program), 22 or 29. Classes will resume Sunday, January 6th. Adult class does meet on December 15th, but not on December 22 or 29. Have a wonderful Christmas break everyone!

Change is coming to the Sunday School Education Hour. Starting Sunday, January 12thit will be at 11:30a.m not at 9:00a.m. and will be for Adults and Middle/High Schoolers (yes, together in one room). The 9:00 hour does not work for Middle/High School and has not been working well for adults either, so we’ll try meeting after worship in the Chapel from 1:30-12:15. We will start with Dan Erlanders great little overview of the Bible “Manna & Mercy.”

Sound Operators – Do you want to share your talent by helping with the Sunday morning service? You can if you want to run the sound board (iPad) during the service. If you are interested see James Stolte or leave your name with the church office. James can show you the system so you can see what is involved before you decide. Arrangements can be made to sit in at the sound station during the service to see it in action if you wish. Youth are welcomed to participate.

The 2020 offering envelopes are ready to be picked up in the fellowship hall. If you do not see a box set with your name on it and would like a box of envelopes, you can write your name and address on the sheet on the table by the envelopes and a box of envelopes will be there by the following Sunday.
