The time and talent sheets are being distributed today to everyone. Please pray about your responses and let the Lord lead you. If you haven't tried one of the areas, maybe now is the time for you to give a new gift. We would really like the youth to fill these out also. It's very important that every member of FLC has an opportunity to serve the Lord with joy.

Please fill this out and return by November 6th.

available after worship. Feel free to leave a donation. Note: remember that this cider is not pasteurized.

Fall Youth Schedule:

Watch for a new November/December Event Schedule, coming soon. For now, here’s a quick overview of events.

11/4 Parents’ Night Out.

11/6 Event Planning Meeting

Parents’ Night Out: We’re coming up on our third Parents’ Night Out, the first Friday in November. PNO is a chance for families with young children to get out for a few hours. The FLC Youth will host your kids, feed them, and play games through the night. The night lasts from 5:30 to 9:30. No donations or gratuities will be accepted. However, if you have interest in helping out with the event, please be sure to sign up. We need people to cook, supervise, and clean. Parents and volunteers are asked to sign up so that we plan food and supervision accurately.

Sunday School: Remember that the Youth Sunday School meets every week from 9:00 to 9:45. We continue working through common questions about our beliefs. Every week we take a vote on the next week’s main question (so far, we’ve explored, “Does God still

create stuff today?” “Why are there so many different Christian churches?” and “Can it be proven that God exists?” Don’t miss it.
