Foyers is a dinner fellowship ministry that's never too late to join. Contact Pastor Bill and Denny Goodwin/Linda Apple to be put in touch with a group. This is a great opportunity to get to know folks from the congregation more personally. In January, participants in Foyers will meet to be reassigned in groups and plan activities for the new year.

  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.
