Community Christmas Basket Update – Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Community Christmas Basket program. We collected $1284 with matching funds from Thrivent Financial for a total of $2568.

Thrivent Appreciation Dinner – An appreciation dinner for all Thrivent members will be held January 21 at the Ellensburg Pasta Company beginning at 6:00 p.m. If you plan on attending please let James Stolte or Donna Morris know so we can give an estimate of numbers to the restaurant. The chapter will be paying for the dinner. See you there.

Refreshments are needed for fellowship time after worship each

Sunday. There are lots of openings for upcoming Sundays.

Please sign up on the back of the kitchen door.

Winter Youth Retreat: The Winter Youth Retreat isn’t far away. During Presidents’ Day Weekend, FLC Youth will travel to Lazy-F Ranch for a couple nights away in the snow. It will be a time for play and worship, including running in the woods, tubing, skating, and avoiding snowballs. We will also sing and study as we set ourselves apart devoted to God

and his people. Watch for more information and a sign-up sheet. We are restricted to the first twenty people signed up. There will be a $30/per person cost.

Friday, February 17–Sunday morning, February 19.
