    Viola Recital -

    Viola Recital by Nicole Felker at Friedens on May 15- 6:00 PM

    The Friedens Congregation is invited to enjoy a viola recital by Nicole and her string quartet on Sunday, May 15, at 6:00 p.m. in our sanctuary, with light refreshments following. A free will offering will be donated to Nicole’s tuition fund for study at the Indiana University Strings Academy Camp in 2017.

    We have a long tradition at Friedens of encouraging and supporting our youth in fundraising projects related to activities that are important to them such as music, sports, scouts and more.  The Friedens Worship and Arts Ministry is very pleased to sponsor Nicole’s recital.

    What is Your God Moment -

      In the May 1 sermon Pastor Marc gave an assignment of being led to someone to help them during the coming week. I know that the people of our congregation are helpful to many people every week and I hope that I am as well. In the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper I made the commitment to be awake to calls for human connection. A few days later I thought I might get a little walking in at the mall. As I walked around the mall I saw a man that was peculiarly dressed and found myself ready to avoid him. The man called to me in passing. I was ready to pass by when I felt a stirring (my God-given conscience). I remembered that a friend had recently “walked a mile” with a stranger in need. I remembered the example of my friend and turned to him as he asked for directions to a store. I pointed him in the direction of a directory and he walked off. As he approached the directory, I got another message- not quite done, Pam. So I followed him to the directory and asked him if he had found the store. We looked together for the listing and then entered into a conversation. The man told me a little about his situation and then turned to go. Again, another urging, and I prayed for him. I felt such a Presence in this connection and although it wasn’t a big deal I can’t wait for the next connection.

    You are invited to share your story of a God-moment.  Sharing our stories of God working in our lives encourages more and more of us to share Christ's love in our everyday lives.  Please email your story to Pastor Marc at pastormarc@FriedensUCC.org
