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.
