Each Sunday during Advent, November 27th –December 18th, we will be collecting baby items during the offering. Diapers and new clothing items will be collected in celebration of the coming of the Christ child and the 2nd coming of Christ. Please remember a baby item to “fill the cradle”. The items collected will be donated to Fredsville’s Family Clothes Closet, the food pantry and the women’s shelter.

On All Saint’s Sunday November 6th, during worship, we will lift up in prayer those who have passed away in the last year, since last All Saint’s Sunday. We will light a candle and remember those whom we love and dearly miss. Grieving is hard work and continues on for many years. On this day, as well as every Sunday, we pray for those who have passed and we pray for all who are grieving. May we all find hope in our times of grief in the knowledge that Christ is raised from the dead, so we too will be raised with Him.
Watch our full service from Sunday, August 21, 2016:
Sunday, September 11, 2016 marks the 15th anniversary of the attacks on the twin towers in New York City. It is also a designated day of service by the ELCA called “God’s Work. Our Hands”. The past several years the ELCA has encouraged congregations to take part in a “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday. This is intended to be a Sunday where instead of being in our building worshiping as we do every week that we would go out into our communities and be the hands of God for our neighbors and our community. The council is extremely excited about this event and we hope that EVERYONE will get involved! On Sunday September 11th we will gather at 9:30 a.m. and all will be given projects to work on- these projects will range from tying quilts, making pillowcase dresses, decorating doors at a nursing home, cleaning up trash in the ditches, baking cookies and delivering them fresh and hot to shut-ins, etc… We will gather again at Fredsville at 11:30 am for a brief liturgy of thankfulness and a celebration lunch and sharing of stories! Please, please, please mark this day on your calendar! We want this day to be an all congregation experience! We will make sure that there are activities for ALL ages and abilities! Tell your friends we would love to have them join us! If you are interested in helping to plan this event please contact Pastor Lisa ASAP! WOOT! WOOT! We are going to have a GREAT TIME!!!!!
