THE SENIOR CHOIR practices on Thursday evenings, at 7:00, September through May.  The ability to read music is not required and we have the need for all voices.

CIRCLE OF PEACE

 

Are you seeking an opportunity to serve our Lord?  If so, then Circle of Peace would like to invite you to join us!

Our purpose is to serve our congregation and school, our church-at-large, and our community.  Through events such as Lenten and Advent dinners, and through the sale of greeting cards, Christmas cards and Advent calendars we raise funds for the purpose of supporting our congregation and school, provide financial support to seminary students and to our members who are attending our Concordia Universities to become full-time church workers, and to Lutherans for Life - to name a few.  We also provide meals for our congregational families in times of need, such as after the birth of a baby.


We purchase Bibles for our upcoming 3rd grade students who are preparing to start midweek classes, acknowledge our high-school and college graduates with a card and special pin, and send cards to our members who serve in the armed forces.  We organize the purchase of Easter lilies and poinsettias, make palm crosses for Palm Sunday, and once a year we deep-clean our church and school kitchens.


Would you prayerfully consider becoming a member of Circle of Peace?  We meet monthly in the fellowship hall.  Watch newsletters and weekly bulletins for schedule.  We would love to have you join us at our next meeting!
 

FAITH'S FAITHFUL

 

Faith’s Faithful is a group of senior citizens who meet at 10:00 a.m., on the first Monday of each month.  We have devotions, play games, and have a pot-luck lunch. 

We celebrate birthdays and anniversaries and have great fellowship.  Occasionally, the Faith Lutheran School children come and sing for us.  During the school year, Bible study class is held on the remaining Mondays of the month.  All senior citizens are invited to join us.

 

LWML

 

Lutheran Women’s Missionary League

LWML Pledge: In fervent gratitude for the Savior's undying love and His blood-bought gift of redemption, we dedicate ourselves to Him with all that we are and have; and in obedience to His call for workers in the harvest fields, we pledge Him our willing service wherever and whenever He has need of us.  We consecrate to our Savior our hands to work for Him, our feet to go on His errands, our voice to sing His praises, our lips to proclaim His redeeming love, our silver and our gold to extend His Kingdom, our will to do His will, and every power of our life to the great task of bringing the lost and the erring into eternal fellowship with Him.  Amen.

 

What LWML can do for you…
Exercise and build your Christian faith through devotions, Bible study and prayer.

Provide ways to help people in your church and community.
Provide you with Christian friendship and fellowship.
Make you part of the solution – help meet global needs for sharing and spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Open your life to new blessings through service to the Lord and His people.

 

The LWML ladies of Faith do a variety of projects:
We continually collect items for Lutheran World Relief, including: quilts, health kits, school kits, layettes, sewing kits, and bars of soap.
We help Grace Lutheran with their food bank.
We support Missions with our mites.  It's not hard to just put our change in one of the mite boxes!

 

Faith Lutheran LWML meets on the second Tuesday of each month at the church.  Please watch for information in the weekly bulletins and monthly newsletters.
For more information, please call Marlene Smith at 524-0439.

We say a big THANK YOU for supporting the projects
