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 participating.

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 is again partnering with Gibsonville United Methodist Church on a PB&J Bag Lunch Ministry this summer. Bag lunches will be prepared and distributed each Wednesday morning starting June 12 through August 14. We will meet on Tuesday nights at 6:30 in the Fellowship Hall of Gibsonville Methodist Church to start filling the bags (go in the side door, then down the steps to the right) and then on Wednesday mornings at 9:00 a.m. to prepare the sandwiches and then deliver them to various places in the Gibsonville area. If you are interested in participating or would like to donate items for the lunch bags (peanut butter, jelly, or chips), you can contact Terri Summers or any member of the Social Ministry Committee.

    Welcome

    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.
