  • At the last council meeting, it was decided that all IN PERSON Faith Formation programming will be cancelled for the summer. This includes summer stretch, VBS, bible studies, small groups, etc.  If you have any questions regarding what programs this will affect, please let the office or Kim Jones (kim@lundbergph.com) know.  The council will be reviewing this in August to decide what direction to go for Fall programming. We encourage everyone to please continue planning Fall programming and we will keep praying that we are all able to meet in the church by September.

    Please remember that just like everything else with the pandemic it is rapidly changing.  FLC is making this decision to keep their congregation safe and healthy as well as the community. 

    Check back here for future information which will be posted regarding any future happenings at FLC. For now the building remains closed and employees continue to work from home as much as possible.

  • Caring Calls Since the Covid-19 virus struck, we have had a faithful group of callers reaching out by phone to the elders of our congregations to check on them and make sure that they are safe and well. Many more callers are needed for this important ministry. Please call the church office if you are interested in making Caring Calls.
     

  • Hospitality Volunteer Opportunity We need a volunteer to oversee the Hospitality Ministry. This person would oversee events for the Kitchen Ministry, Nursery, Church Use, Sunday Fellowship, Keepers of the Vineyard, WELCA Circles. This does not mean this person has to perform all the work. This person would be in charge of enlisting helpers to take care of the tasks at hand. Tasks include: creating a Sunday Fellowship each year, assigning new members to Keepers Groups and WELCA Circles, working with the Nursery Supervisor on any projects for the nursery, assisting the Kitchen Ministry Leader and the Church Use Ministry Leader in coordinating events, and reporting to the Council Liaison.
