Trunk or Treat
Faith Lutheran Evangelical Church will host its 2018 Annual Trunk or Treat event in the parking lot for children from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 31st. Faith Lutheran Church every year provides a safe place for youngsters to go trick or treating. This year we will have some games for the kids to win prizes. The trunks, or cars, will have their own Halloween themes only limited by the creativity of their owners. See you there!

For more information call Christine Medrano at 678-925-4297.

Looking for Cars and Candy!
The “Trunk” parts of Trunk or Treat are the cars and we really want more of them for this event! Get those Halloween skeletons dressed and those pumpkins carved and then give them a ride to Trunk or Treat at Faith. The “Treat” part is Candy, and any kind of candy will do! An abundance of both will make this event a success!

For more information call Christine Medrano at 678-925-4297.

Can You Believe It?
It’s almost time to order Poinsettias! Plants will be 8 dollars each again this year and the Deadline to order is Monday, November 12th! Be on the lookout for order slips in Bulletins coming soon.

Operation Christmas Child
National Collection Week is November 12-19, 2018. Have your Shoebox ready by Sunday, November 11th and Faith will make sure it makes it to the ends of the Earth! See Carol Sutton for details.

We have a Library!
We now have a tall bookshelf in the fellowship hall to house our informal library. Bring books to share, take them to read, keep them or return them as you wish. There will be room for magazines, Puzzles, and DVDs. The bottom shelf will be for the children. See Christine Medrano for details.

Help us with Food for Fellowship!
As you may know, we at Faith enjoy refreshments and snacks as well as fellowship after Sunday worship. Our volunteer hosts are always happy to provide these delights for us, especially those dishes they know we love. As you can imagine, this can get expensive especially for those who host fellowship for us regularly. In appreciation for the good food they bring to us every week, we would like to help them out by bringing in food for fellowship. This will help their pocket books as well as our fellowship pantry! The best foods and drinks to bring in are those with a long shelf life such as sealed cookies, crisps, bottled tea, crackers and other snacks, but especially refreshments! Thanks!

Altar Guild
The Altar Guild prepares the sanctuary for worship services. Members are responsible for the care and cleaning of the altar paraments, and are very knowledgeable in the aspects of the liturgy and Church seasons. There is no experience necessary, and training will be provided. If you would like to help serve the congregation by filling this vital role, please call the church office at 386-734-2791.

Second Sunday Sharing
Faith's Outreach Ministry will be continuing our partnership with St Barnabas to help their Faith at Work Food Pantry! On the second Sunday of each month, everyone will be asked to bring a specific non-perishable food item the pantry needs. To find out what to bring, click HERE!

FROG Ministries
In partnership with our friends at FROG (Forever Relying On God) Ministries, we now have a collection barrel for donations of new or gently used clothing, baby items, toys and other small items. If you have something large to donate, such as furniture, please contact the office to make arrangements.

Give the Worship Folders!
Giving the worship folders by making a donation of $20 is a great way to celebrate or commemorate a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, retirement, or promotion! You can also give the Sanctuary Candle by making a donation of $30. You can find envelopes designed especially for this purpose in the Communication Center at the rear of the Sanctuary, or simply make your donation and call the office with your commemoration. You can also make your donation and commemoration online using your credit or debit card.

Fellowship Gathering
Please sign up to host Fellowship! Sign-up sheet is in the Fellowship Hall at the coffee service area.

Special Occasion?
Commemorate it by giving the weekly Worship Folders (bulletins) or the monthly Sanctuary Candle. Call the church office at (386)734-2791 to find out how. If you would like to celebrate a special occasion with flowers or live plants give Ruth Erickson a call at 386 734-9697.
