Upcoming Events 


Express Wednesday Worship

We are excited to announce a new worship service on Wednesday nights! This upbeat, creative worship will be offered from 7-7:30 pm (during confirmation but all are welcome!!!); an express worship designed for movement, music and communion! The themes and messages will be different than what you will hear on Sundays, so feel free to join us for both! Unique music leadership, 5-minute sermons & joy-filled worship. All are welcome. It is held whenever Confirmation is in session. Nursery is available.


Summer Mission Trip Info Meetings

Sunday, November 18, at noon those interested in the summer trip to El Salvador will meet in the Conference Room, all others (whitewater/adventure trip & Puerto Rico) in the Youth Room. Ask questions, get more details and sign up for these awesome trips!

Thanksgiving Caroling – Tuesday, Nov. 20 6:30 to 8:00 PM

Join us for a unique and joyful way to celebrate the season of Thanksgiving. We’ll go Thanksgiving-Caroling to our friends at Bethesda Lutheran Community in Victoria, as well as one group home on Rolling Acres Road. It’s a music service event! Meet at church at 6:30 for some hot cider, then we’ll carpool together to our destination. No sign-up is necessary since we’ll just be taking our show on the road with whoever can join us.  


Sunday Evening Bible Study

A “come as you are” gathering geared for women in their 30’s and 40’s. We meet the 3rd Sunday of the month from 7-9. The group will begin with a study of Bob Goff’s book “Everybody Always” (you don’t have to have read the book to participate!) starting this next Sunday, November 18, at the home of Lisa DeLaHunt, 1839 Clover Meadow Drive in Chaska. Contact Lisa DeLaHunt if you are interested in this fun group!

Women's Advent Bible Study

Beginning Friday, November 16 and continuing on Fridays, November 30 and December 7 & 14, join us from 9:30-11:00am in the Conference Room at church to study “The Gospel of It’s a Wonderful Life.” Using clips from the beloved holiday movie, we’ll look at several themes from the movie from a Scriptural perspective. Contact with your interest or questions. We hope you’ll join us!


Common Thread (55+ Group)

Monthly Dinner Out on Monday, Nov. 26 at 6pm at Jake O’Connors in Excelsior. Questions? Call Janet or Dave Heibel. No need to sign up, just show up. New people always welcome!


Holiday Concert with Compass Rose – Saturday, Dec. 8 at 3:00 PM

The brass band, Compass Rose, has been rehearsing in our church on many Sunday evenings. Now they are preparing for a Christmas Concert on Dec. 8 right here at Family of Christ. Adult admission is $10 and children are $5. Make room in your December schedule to catch this wonderful performance.


16th Annual Cookie Walk

Join us on Saturday, Dec. 8 from 9-11am for our annual Cookie Walk! Fill a container to the brim, $10 each. Get all your holiday baking done in one spot! FoC honey will be for sale as well. NEW this year we will have O.W.L. yoga taking place from 9:30-11 as well as a kids’ craft! Bring the little ones to pick out some delicious treats then spend some time relaxing and appreciating the season of Advent! Come early for the best selection. Questions? Talk to Kim or Teri.


It's Hip to be Square

The FoC Quilting Ministry makes quilts for Lutheran World Relief and various Veterans programs.  Meetings are for tying quilts only.  No sewing is required, but help is always welcomed and appreciated. Join the fun for a couple of hours every other Friday afternoon, starting at 1 PM (the quilters take December off).  Oh, and there are other ways to help such as sewing squares together at home, sharpening scissors, or delivering quilts to the LWR warehouse twice a year.  For further information, contact Lynne Merrick at 952-937-8014.


Altar Flowers

A gift of flowers for Sunday worship is a lovely and meaningful way to remember a loved one, a special occasion, or a blessing received. For a very affordable $20, we will create a beautiful fresh arrangement to adorn the altar, which you may take home after Sunday worship, if you’d like. Sign up on the flower chart on the kiosk for the date(s) on which you’d like to provide flowers. Please make your check payable to “Family of Christ,” write “flowers” on the memo line, and leave the check in Marilyn Syverson’s mailbox in the church office.
