INFORMATION FROM OUR DIRECTOR OF MUSIC: Rehearsals for all ensembles begin Wednesday, September 7th. Regular scheduled rehearsals WILL be on THURSDAYS (with the exception of Thursday, September 8th rehearsal moved to Wednesday, September 7th due to my “Meet the Teacher” night at school).
If you took a break from music and are ready to come back, if you have never rung a bell or sung in a choir before, or if you have been part of the music ministry here for years; I look forward to glorifying God’s name with you.

Faith Lutheran will be the sight of a 2-hour workshop to look at the grief that comes with death, divorce, unemployment and other important losses that may impact your life. Participants will work together to find meaning in grief, and look at God's Word and coping strategies that may help to lessen the pain and promote healing.
There is no cost for this workshop, which will be held at FELC on Sunday, Sept 18, from 2 to 4 pm. Contact the pastor with questions or to register.
There is a Flamingo poster on the Sunday School bulletin board in the hallway. We are looking for people to post sightings of LIVE Flamingos that you see during the summer. So far, I haven't seen any postings. Can you help us out? Send me an e-mail and I can post that! There are two posts on the board so far!'
