Upcoming Events 


Softball Team Forming

Our Softball team’s season is underway with an 0-1 record, since the second game was rained out (though it may yet be rescheduled).  Next up is the game for Monday, June 18 at 6:15 pm at Chaska Lion’s Park field #3, as this time our team faces the marauders from Christ Victorious Lutheran Church.   Ellie and Scott Boros are this summer’s managers for our softball team, and you can contact Ellie. 

Summer Worship Teams

Singers and instrumentalists! We hope you can join with our Summer Music Ministry by helping out, once, twice or a number of times.  Two pianists, Mary Renz and Andrea Zimmerman, will be helping lead our summer worship services and on those Sundays when we have a Worship Team, they’ll rehearse the group on that Sunday at 9:20 am.  Andrea Zimmerman will add an extra rehearsal on Fridays at 6:00 PM prior to her Sunday and Mary Renz will add an extra rehearsal on Saturdays at 9:00 AM prior to her Sunday.  Also, watch for more information about a bell choir on July 15, a World Music Sunday on July 22 & a Polka Worship on Aug. 5.  We love to welcome new and returning musicians into these joyful summer worship services. Click HERE for a full calendar of music for the summer and email Mary Renz, our Director of Music, with any questions. 



        Here’s this week’s schedule:

                        6-7   Picnic Supper

6-7   Eat your supper in the Conference Room for a Pastor’s Class led by Pr. Josh

6-7   Intergenerational tie-blanket project ongoing throughout the summer w/ Teri

                        6-7   Games for kids out on the lawn before worship

Wednesday, June 21 will have a very similar schedule, though the supper menu will change, and Pr. Sue will lead worship. If the weather is ever bad, we just move ourselves indoors.


Block Party Art Fair

This year’s block party will feature an art gallery. If you are an artist and have 2-3 pieces that you would like to display on July 25, let me know. All types of art are appreciated but it would be a bonus you have something with a faith focus. Email andie@familyofchristonline.com to sign 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.
