FLC Announcements

Budget Forum: NEXT Sunday, January, 22nd at 9a.m. If you have input into our 2012 budget or questions, please come to this budget forum.

Last Supper Pageant:

Anyone that would like to participate in the Last Supper Pageant on Maundy Thursday, April 5th: please contact Sheila Johnson at 929-3877-cell or at home 968-3967.

We will start practicing in February, so please be inspired to share your talents. I need people to read parts for the 12 disciples and Jesus. Plus, I need extras for costumes, props, set up, and lighting. I would appreciate whatever help you can give.

Community Christmas Basket Update – Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Community Christmas Basket program. We collected $1,284 with matching funds from Thrivent Financial for a total of $2,568.

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.

The Annual Meeting of First Lutheran Church will be held Sunday, January 29th after worship. We need all voting members to stay (if you are an adult or confirmed youth, you are a voting member) and help pass a budget and elect four new council members. The youth will be serving their baked potato bar, so you won’t go hungry.

If you head up a group or ministry, please submit a brief written report to the Church Office by Tuesday, January 17th.

Are you missing any dishes or containers? In the kitchen, on the corner counter are a bunch of misc. dishes and containers that need to find their way home. If any of these are yours please, pick them up. Thank you!!!

Annual Potato Feed: We’re only two weeks away from FLC’s Annual Meeting and that means potatoes! We need volunteers to help set up on Saturday, January 28 (1:00-2:30). We also need volunteers to prepare, serve, and clean up on Sunday. If you can help, please let Joe know or sign up on the Facebook event page. (www.facebook.com/flcyouth)

Desserts for the Annual Meeting: What’s better than a great baked potato? How about dessert afterward? We’re looking for eight people to bring dessert (cookies, brownies, etc.) for the Annual Meeting. If you can bring something, please sign-up on the Youth board. Thanks.

Winter Youth Retreat Registration: The Winter Youth Retreat isn’t far away. Our goal is to get ten people committed by today, January 15. We’re half way there!

Winter Youth Retreat: 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. We’re happy to have Nate and Emily McGown teaching and leading music for us. We are restricted to the first twenty people signed up, so get signed up today (sheet is on the gym door). There will be a $30/per person cost.

Friday, February 17–Sunday morning, February 19.
