Christian Assistance Program (CAP)

During the month of May, CAP will be collecting canned fruit, and for the month of June, CAP will be collecting macaroni and cheese. A basket is located at the bottom of the sanctuary steps to collect donations for our food pantry. If you want to donate in another way, you can donate cash in honor or in remembrance of someone.

There are cards on the bookcase in the Fellowship Hall to complete and mail to our CAP address, 1239 Murray Rd., Odenton, MD 21113. Letters are sent out to the recipients or their families acknowledging these gifts.

Voters' Assembly April 30, 2017

Voters' Assembly - Pre-K

There was a Voters' Assembly on April 30th to discuss the future of our Pre-K. It is with regret that we report the vote was to close the Pre-K at the end of this school year. In these austere times for FELC, it was deemed that we can no longer operate the Pre-K at a loss and that we must focus on our call for a new Pastor. However, it was decided to maintain our license so we can possibly reopen in the future.

We have had wonderful, dedicated teachers who have provided a solid start for our children as they entered into Elementary school. We appreciate all their hard work and the work of everyone who have supported our Pre-K.

Sunday School News

by David and Ursula Pinckney

Our year of Sunday school is quickly winding down. The last day of Sunday school for the children is May 21st. The adult class will run until May 28th. We will continue to study the Large Catechism. There will be a Christian movie available for the children that day so that parents may attend the adult class.

Dave and I would like to thank all the teachers for their dedication and the time they gave to share God's word with our children. The Middle and High school class was joined together this year and was well attended! Thanks Brenda for taking that on!

As students move up a grade next year we will be in need of another teacher for the 1st/2nd graders. Think about it over the summer and if you desire and are able to help with Sunday school in any way, please feel free to contact us at or 410-729-2916.

Rally Day for next year will be on Sunday, September 11th. Mark that date on your calendar and think about someone you can bring or tell about our Sunday school classes!

Have a safe and blessed summer!
