Board of Christian Education needs your help! - Sunday School has need of a 5th-8th grade teacher/co-teachers grade starting in January.

Youth Fundraiser - High School Youth Group will be selling 2019 God's Creation 12-month wall calendars for $10/each. Youth group members will be selling these calendars each Sunday beginning December 2. The calendars feature bright, beautiful pictures of God's glorious creations and have inspiring scriptures alongside the pictures. Profits from this fundraiser will be used to support the youth traveling to Minnesota this summer for the National Youth Gathering. Thank you for your continued support and prayers.
Sound Techs Needed - Faith Lutheran Church is looking for volunteers to operate the Sanctuary sound system during worship services. The system is fairly easy to learn and training is provided. If you are interested or would like more information please contact Pastor Adams or David White.
Choir seeking members - If you enjoy singing just for fun, or have been in a choir in the past, please consider joining us for practice on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm, and performance most Sundays at 8am. No experience necessary! Please contact David White for more information.
Ripples of Change - If you want to be a regular contributor of food to Ripples of Change on the 4th Thursday of each month, please talk to Russ McCullough. He coordinates the food, and will send out group text messages as the 4th Thursday draws near.

Prayer Chain Update
The Faith Lutheran Prayer Chain would like to thank Marilyn Zimmerman for faithfully serving as coordinator of our group for many years. She has now passed the baton to Margi Harris. We pray confidentially for anyone who requests that we do so. You can simply request “prayers”, or you can give as many details as you care to share. No questions asked. Whatever the case know that all information stays within the group and is not shared.
Please prayerfully consider joining our group to pray for others in need of prayer or to offer praise to God, Jesus our Savior and the Holy Spirit for all their benefits to us. If you would like to join please email Margi. Contact information in November's newsletter.
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”
