    Church Wide Ice Cream Social and Fun night -

    As summer draws to a close, let's make the most of it! Join us for ice cream and games at the church on Saturday, September 5, at 6:00pm. We'll provide the ice cream (including a dairy-free option); you bring your favorite topping! Bring a lawn chair and any outdoor games, too. Weather permitting, we'll play outside, and there may even be an all-ages game of Hide-and-Seek! Contact Trish Gilbertson or trisha.gilbertson@gmail.com if you have any questions.

    Oktoberfest -

    On September 27, 2015, directly following the 10:30, the Fellowship Committee will sponsor a pitch-in celebrating Oktoberfest. Everyone is invited to join us. The church will provide the meat (brats, hot dogs and chicken plus buns), drinks and the table service supplies. You are invited to share a dish for the meal. We will transform the CLWC into a German party area. Plans are to have German music during the dinner time and some activities for the children. 

    There will be sign-up sheets and information available in the Narthex starting in September.

    So please plan to come and enjoy a meal with your Friedens congregation. Now that the two 10:30 services are meeting together, this is a good time to make and renew friendships. We look forward to seeing all of you on the 27th to have some food, fellowship and fun!!

    Message From Pastor Marc -

    Unified 10:30 AM Worship Service

    Remember: September 6th Marks a New Opportunity in Worship!

    There is no adjustment in the spirit of worship at Friedens United Church of Christ, it will remain dignified, joyful and sacred. The 8:30AM communion service will remain as usual. The change is at 10:30AM worship where two services are unified into one service in the sanctuary. Where we were once separate we are now together!

    Everyone is welcome!  God is the audience!  The purpose is to glorify God and to find inspiration and instruction to follow the way of Jesus from Monday through Saturday.  We are not the church without worship.  Worship is less than it should be without you!  The Psalmist said it beautifully, “Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.  Worship the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing.”  (Psalm 100:1-2)
