Walking with Jesus to the Cross

Every once in a while, an opportunity comes along to walk with Jesus in a way that deepens your connection.  This Wednesday, Noon to 3 and again, 5:30-8:30, you are invited to recall the story of Jesus' walk to the cross beginning with Judas' betrayal and ending with Jesus' burial in the tomb.  The journey begins in the fellowship hall, proceeds through the classrooms, and ends in the sanctuary.  Along the way, you will be invited to perform certain actions to help enrich the experience.  We pray this self-guided, meditative journey will open your heart wider to our Lord as you get to know him and his sacrifice more intimately.

If you are unable to attend in person, we are offering a virtual version of the experience through video. The videos will be available beginning on Ash Wednesday. Watch the videos in order, "Ash Wednesday Station-1" through "Ash Wednesday Station-6". Click here. You will be taken to a page with video links on the right.


Foyers - The word implies entrance to a building. That is exactly what the Foyers groups do once a month with a delightful twist: Food and fellowship. This is an opportunity to get to better know the people we spend time with: our church family and neighbors. It is an open, welcoming small group of people with only one agenda (maybe two), good food and caring. It sometimes meets in a private home and sometimes at a restaurant. It was started on October 8, 2017. Please contact the church office for times, locations, and to participate.

The current groups are

Denny Goodwin & Linda Apple, Gary & Cathy Bennett,Pastor Bill, Jenny and Lydia Zima, Lee & Nan Melber, Diane Sanderford

Doug & Janice Bradburn, Don & Judy Armbrust, Gail Crawford, Christy Johnson, Elaine & Gerald Fryar

Wray Robertson & Carolyn Harris, Justin, Kristie, Anna Grace & Emily Nicks, Bonnie Loy, JoAnn Allen, Jeff & Karen Storholt

    Friedens Lutheran Church is one of the oldest Lutheran churches in North Carolina (established in 1745) but we pride ourselves as being progressive and adaptive to the world around us.   Though we're among the oldest, the many ministries of Friedens Lutheran Church are designed to meet today's spiritual needs. A part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, we strongly believe that with our hands we are doing God's work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus' name throughout the world.

  • Food Pantry Depleting

    The Friedens Food Pantry allows members of our community to easily and anonymously obtain food to feed their families. Supplies are really running low and demand is increasing with the lower temperatures. We are really in need of all beans except Garbanzo, pasta, soups, and cereal. If you are able to help, please bring anything that you would enjoy having on a cold winter’s night to share with those in our community this Sunday, January 10, 2021. Thanks for supporting our community in their time of need.
