Charge Up Connections

Upcoming Events 


Women's Advent Bible Study

On Friday,  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!


John Hill's Jazzy Christmas Concert – Sunday, Dec. 16 at 4:00 pm  

Our own John Hill presents his sixth annual Christmas concert.  Working with a number of his musician friends, John, with guitarist Dustin Bendell, will play their laid-back style and help you celebrate the joy of the season.   It is free-admission.  Along with holiday favorites, they will also play selections from their holiday CD entitled “Christmas” and those CD’s will be for sale after the concert. Join us for this wonderful way to relax, sing-along, and enjoy the music of Christmas.


Choir Caroling

Come and hear the FoC Singers caroling at the Lunds/Byerly’s in Chanhassen. They were  invited to bring the joy of the season through their music to holiday shoppers on Saturday, Dec. 22, from 2:00-4:00. Come shop for some groceries, then linger to hear our church carolers!


Join our Family of Christ Singers on Christmas Eve  

Are you a strong singer (and fairly good music reader) but cannot regularly join our FoC Singers Choir?  How about singing with us on Christmas Eve during the 7 pm service?  You could meet with our Christmas Eve Choir at two rehearsals:  11:15 am on Sunday, Dec. 23; and at 6:30 pm on Dec. 24.  We'll prepare two songs, and be ready to sing them in worship at 7 pm on Christmas Eve.  Direct questions to Mary Renz or Ron Larson.


Saturday, Feb. 2 we will head to Grace Church in Eden Prairie to see Christian Comedian John Crist (if you haven’t seen or heard of him check out this link  – he’s hilarious). The tickets are $25 a piece. Please sign up soon so we can get them ordered. We will, of course eat beforehand, not sure where yet but will keep everyone informed. Show starts at 7:30. Hope you can join us! It will be a hoot! Questions: Talk to Melanie Wegner or Kim Schaeferle.


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.


Save the date

Family of Christ Couples’ Retreat at Luther Crest Bible Camp in Alexandria, MN! February 15-17, 2019. Watch for more details and registration soon. Questions? Contact


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 Stephanie Proper's mailbox in the church office.
