Blue Ribbon Project
More...

During the month of September FELC youth will be collecting items for our “Backpacks of Love” project.

Look in the Church Narthex for a poster board with Blue Ribbons attached to it. Each Ribbon will have an item on it that we need to fill the Backpacks.

The Purpose of the Backpacks is to provide children with essential and comforting items during their first 24-48 hours of entering Foster Care. Please place the item in the Blue Box next to the poster board by the end of September.

Sunday School News
More...

Rally Sunday is just around the corner! School will be back in session and that means it's time for us to get started with learning more about Jesus here at FELC! Our Theme is "Growing In Christ". We will have a class for the adults, taught by Pastor Alec in the Fellowship Hall. The remaining classes will be taught in the church basement. Classes are available for preschool age thru high school. Sunday, there will be a note on the church basement doors to let you know more about the intended locations of each class, as some moves may have been necessary. We are excited to have some new faces joining us this year and hope we can count on your family to join us in Sunday school!

The main change for Sunday school is the starting and ending times. The younger students should arrive in the whole group area, located in the back end of the basement by 9:00 am. We will have our regular opening that includes a welcome with singing, prayers and offering collection led by the Schmidleys. Then students disperse to their age appropriate classes. Students will be finished and ready to meet parents at 10:00. There will be coffee and refreshments in the Fellowship Hall with the Service starting at 10:30.

The Middle school students will be meeting at the same time and will join with the High School youth until October, when Mike Peterson will begin teaching the middle school class. It will include information that could lead to confirmation, if your child desires to go that route. In October, all Middle school students will have the same curriculum taught to them, but those seeking to be confirmed into the Lutheran church will have additional expectations. Mike will teach the important topics such as Ten Commandments, the Creeds, Lord's Prayer, etc., and the understanding that goes along with those topics.

We have updated our registration form to include allergies, and email addresses for parents. Please be sure to register (again) so that we have that information. Registration forms will be at the Superintendent's desk starting September 2nd at 8:45 am. Ideally we'd like that filled out before classes begin. We look forward to meeting you and your children. God's Blessings!

Christian Assistance Program (CAP) / Food Pantry
More...

During the month of September, CAP will be collecting peanut butter and jelly.

A basket is located at the bottom of the sanctuary steps to collect donations. 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.
