CAMP SUNDAY AND CARNIVAL, FEBRUARY 7
Sunday, February 7th, is Super for many reasons. It is our Camp Sunday AND our Camp Sunday Carnival. It is the day we will celebrate our pledges toward FLC’s $30,000 goal to support the construction of a new dining hall at OUR Camp Vermillion. Camp Staff will be joining us for worship and the Carnival.
The 10:00 am worship will be one of those unique times we have the WHOLE congregation together the WHOLE time. Right after worship the carnival barkers will beckon all into the fellowship hall for carnival games and carnival lunch of Hot Dogs and Brats and more. FLC’s camp team and others are a THRIVENT Action Team and appreciate your support as we INSPIRE generosity through this fun faith event.

IN OUR COMMUNITY:
Aitkin County CARE offers weekly tape recordings of the Aitkin Independent Age
for the blind or sight-challenged,
but additional readers are needed.
As a volunteer, you would record in your own home, involving 3 hours a month. Please contact Pastor Bob at the church office (218-927-2028) or cell (218-851-2483) for more information or to sign up.
MEALS ON WHEELS DRIVERS:
This worthy service for homebound seniors and disabled adults is in temporary need of
delivery volunteers to fill in during the winter months for the regular “snowbird” drivers.
If you’re able and willing, please call
Betty Jacobs at the Aitkin County CARE office, 218-927-1383, or 1-800-333-2433
for the 2016/2017 School Year
Community Education is looking for 30-35 volunteers, aged 55+, to meet once a month during the next school year with Kindergartners. Each volunteer will spend about an hour with 3-4 kids to read a book and then do a related craft, cooking, or other activity. Since this is funded by Northland Foundation in Duluth, volunteers will need to sign up before the end of this school year. Please contact Jill Blanchette,
FLC’s Office Manager, at 218-927-2028.
