Guys' Night at the Movies

On Tuesday, Feb. 20 the men of FoC are invited to join Pastor Josh in viewing and discussing the new movie, “Samson,” starring Taylor James, Rutger Hauer, and Lindsay Wagner.   Let’s see how Hollywood is portraying this Old Testament story from the book of Judges.  Plan on the early evening showing (7ish).  Email Josh if you’d like to come and he’ll respond with the exact time of our meet up.  We’ll also plan a night-cap afterwards to discuss the film & enjoy a libation. 


Interested in Serving on a Call Committee?

We are putting together a committee to work on creating a ministry-site-profile, building a job description for an Associate Pastor, then interviewing prospective candidates, and finally recommending a candidate to the Congregation.  If you are interested in serving on this Call Committee, please contact Pastor Josh in person or via email to express your interest and availability.


Common Thread Dinner Out

The next Common Thread (55+) Dinner Night Out will be on Monday, Feb. 26 at 6pm at Jake O’Conner’s Public House, 200 Water Street, Excelsior.  If you are a regular or have never attended a Dinner Night Out or are new to  FOC, this is a good way to meet people.  Come and enjoy some good food and conversation.  No need to sign up, just show up.


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.
