Caroling to our homebound members: Sunday, December 9th after worship. Anyone is welcome to join our youth and parents as we share a little Christmas joy with our homebound members. We’ll serve a light lunch for carolers right after worship, then carpool to homes and assisted living places. Let Amy and/or Pastor Dennis know if you are going. We’ll be done by about 1:30p.m.

Time, Talent and Treasure If you did not get the chance last Sunday to fill out a Time & Talent sheet or a financial pledge form, they are in the back by the bulletins and ushers. Drop them in the offering plate, mail them in, or put them in the big basket on the children’s table just outside the sanctuary.

Youth Activities

FLC Youth (grades 6 - 12)

Saturday, Dec 1 - Cookie Bake and Cocoa Party! 6 to 8 pm in the Fellowship Hall. Bring your favorite cookie to share and join in the fun. Christmas Karaoke, bake and decorate treats for Fellowship, more!

Sunday, Dec 9 - Caroling after church! Meet in the kitchen to eat a light lunch and warm up those vocal chords. No auto-tuning on this trip! We will be visiting our friends in nursing homes and around the community.

Note: December is the last month that the youth newsletters will be mailed out. You can still find out what's going on by checking the monthly Flare, listening to the Sunday announcements, reading the emails I send out, Facebook, the Youth Board, the FLC website, picking up a flyer at church, and of course reading about it in your weekly bulletin!
