Annual Meeting Today, after worship. You won’t go hungry, because the youth will be serving a baked potato bar right after worship. We do need all voting members (if you are an adult or a confirmed youth you are a voting member) to help us pass a budget and elect some council members. We try to keep it short.

Credit Card or Debit Card Use - If you are interested in using your credit/debit card for a donation or offering to the church, please see James Stolte.

Our Eastern Washington/Idaho Synod Assembly of the ELCA will be April 24-26 at the Pasco Red Lion this year. We hope to elect/appoint 2 delegates at FLC’s annual meeting January 25th (preferably 1 male and 1 female). Synod Assemblies include great worship, workshops, speakers and friends as well as some synod business. FLC pays your way! Let Pastor Dennis know if you are interested.

Youth Activities

Nothing is going to slow us down!

February 1 we are participating in National Souper Bowl of Caring Sunday. We hold super soup pots and the congregation fills them up with donations for the FISH Food Bank.

Don't forget Winter Retreat is coming up - sign up on the Youth Board. We leave at 4 p.m. on Friday, February 13th and come home 4 p.m. on Saturday, February 14th. You don't want to miss it. High Schoolers welcome, too. Pretty much required for confirmation students. Cost $30. (Scholarships available.) Includes 3 meals and lodging. We will be covering 3 lessons on the Lord’s prayer as well as having a great time. Bring snacks for Friday evening, warm clothes, sleeping bag, pillow, toothbrush, Bibles and games to play. (Also medical release form.)

A big thank you for all of the books donated for the Mount Stewart's READ Box program! There's going to be a lot of happy kids reading some really great books soon!
