  • Volunteer as a Guardian ad Litem Have you ever read a newspaper story about a child who was abused or neglected and wondered what happens to this child? If a child is lucky, their case is assigned to a volunteer Guardian ad Litem. The first thing the volunteer Guardian ad Litem will do is to get to know the child. They will want to know the child’s needs and wishes. Then they make recommendations to the Court. Each child has different circumstances and wishes. Volunteers are the voice of the child in court. Presently there are 41 children in Iredell waiting for a Guardian ad Litem. The Iredell GAL program needs more volunteers.The requirement to be a volunteer is to be an adult who ...

  • Visitor Bags DID YOU KNOW ??? - The Evangelism Team has stuffed lots of visitor bags with goodies, and placed them around the church and FLC.

  • Property Committee- Painting We need volunteers to help paint all of the classrooms and the hall on the Nursery wing of the church.  Although this sounds like a big job, with enough volunteers we will be able to complete this task quickly.   We will continue to work on Saturday June 25th, beginning at 8:00 am.  We have plenty of paint, rollers and brushes.  If you can only stop by for an hour or two we will take all of the help we can get.  We will be happy to put your children to work, as long as they are past the age where they might be tempted to eat the paint instead of putting it on the walls.  We will also ...

  • LUTHERANS LEARNING LUKE  – Journey with NC Lutherans this summer as we read together the Gospel of Luke. For 28 days, the synod’s Book of Faith Team will provide an introduction, overview, devotions and prayers for you to engage with scripture and read the Gospel of Luke with Lutherans from across the synod. The resource has been written by rostered leaders and lay people of all ages, including our own Molly Markley. The dates are June 12 – July 9; however if another 28 day period during the summer works better for you, use it then. There are a limited number of copies available in the Narthex and you can download and print it yourself from the NC Synod Book of Faith webpage: http ...
