Come to Fredsville Lutheran Church any time between 4-6:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 9, for a delicious aebleskiver dinner! Tickets are only $6 for adults and $3 for children ages 3-10. It’s free for kids 2 and under! Menu includes all-you-can eat Danish aebleskiver, sausage, applesauce, dessert and beverage.
On March 17th at 6:00 p.m. The women of the church are invited to meet at the parsonage for appetizers and the beginning of an evening of progressive dinner and Bible Study! The plan is to begin with appetizers and then travel to someone else’s home for salad, for main course, and then for dessert. At each location we will have a short devotion that will pertain to our meal. This is going to be a great night and we hope that many women and their friends will join us! Please RSVP the church office or sign up on the clip board so we can make sure each hostess has enough food! If you are interested in helping with this event, please contact Pastor Lisa.
Each Saturday during Lent we will spend some time with a new series called Animate. Animate is a video series, that includes Bible Study and conversation that looks at where the Bible came from and the importance of this book to our daily lives. We will meet each Saturday morning beginning on March 8th at 9:30 a.m. in the fellowship hall. Donuts, coffee, and juice will be provided! Please sign up on the sheet in the fellowship hall so we can be sure to have enough supplies for everyone!

March 16 - Bath Towels that are light weight, dark color is preferred.
March 23 – Toothbrushes in their original packaging

The Fredsville Community is being challenged by Pastor Lisa and Vicar Ron to donate enough items that we can put together 250 Baskets! We will collect items in bins at the front of the church as part of our Sunday offering. On Palm Sunday following worship we will have a finger food potluck and we will all gather in the fellowship hall to assemble our Basket/Bundles! This is a wonderful challenge and we know you are up for it! Let’s beat this goal together!!!!
On Sunday February 23rd at 2pm, Pastor Lisa and Vicar Ron will lead an afternoon of funeral planning for all members of Fredsville. Pre-planning your funeral is a loving act that we can do for our families and we encourage you to attend this informative workshop. We will walk you through the funeral liturgy, choosing scripture and hymns. At the end of the day we will keep on file a copy of your decisions and send a copy home with you to give to your family members. If you have any questions about this workshop please do not hesitate to ask Pastor Lisa and/or Vicar Ron. We do ask that you let us know that you are coming to this event by either signing up on the sign-up sheet or by calling the church office. There are many materials we need to have printed in advance. If you cannot make this time, Pastor Lisa and Vicar Ron are happy to help you do your planning at another time, simply call the church office to get on their schedule.
