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.

New Member Class

Interested in becoming a member here at Family of Christ? We will have a new member luncheon on Sunday, November 4 from noon – 2:30, meet other newcomers, church council leaders, pastors, and staff, learn more about FOC, and explore ways to get connected. We will welcome you as new members on Sunday, November 18. Sign up on the “What’s Happening” board by the kitchen if you’re interested and talk to Kim if you have any questions. Childcare is available for kids under 4, so let us know if you need that.

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.
