Foyers and Packathon

Foyers, a small group activity based on Christian fellowship, will have its first informational interest meeting on Sunday, August 21st, after the 11 AM worship service. Foyers implies the warmth of a small group of close friends or family members sharing love and concern for each other. Small groups would meet monthly in each other's homes, with the focus on getting to know each other and sharing conversation over a meal, such as lunch or supper. If you have questions or are unable to attend on August 21st, please contact Pastor Bill, Denny Goodwin, or Linda Apple.

IMG_0676 Friedens youth and other members of the congregation participated in a "Feed the Hunger" All-American Packathon activity at the Holly Hill Mall on Friday evening, July 8. The group, along with another church group, was able to pack 54 boxes of food for use in other parts of the United States to feed hungry and underprivileged children. The over 12,000 meals not only provide nutrition for those in need, but are packed in an environment of fun and Christian fellowship.

  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.                      

A very special thank you to Drew Hamlet who attended this years' NC Synod Assembly in Charlotte.  Drew spoke to the congregation this morning and provided a few links for exciting information through our Synod.
