ANGEL TREE – Coming soon!
Once again, Friedens is happy to participate in the Angel Tree program this year! We are working with an area group and have requested 50 lists. We hope to have everything set-up around Thanksgiving, including lists and information about how to prepare the gifts. As always, thank you for your generosity in helping to make special Christmas memories for local families.


As mentioned in Pastor Strause’s article in the Transformer, copies of Luther’s “Small Catechism” are available for your use in the narthex of the church. We also have a small number of large print copies. If you would like a large print copy, please contact the office.


Your help is needed to provide a simple lunch for our Confirmation class. The schedule and sign-up sheet can be found in the narthex. Lunch is served at 11:45am in the church parlor for Pastor Strause and the Middle School Students. Contact the church office with any questions.
