Congregational Meeting to Consider New Co-Pastor for Faith!
A special meeting of the congregation will be held TODAY at 12:15 p.m. to consider the Church Council’s recommendation to call The Rev. Katherine (Kate) A. Davidson to be co-pastor of Faith Lutheran Church. All confirmed members are asked to come to this important meeting of the congregation.
Mission of the Month: Arlington Free Clinic
The Arlington Free Clinic (AFC) provides free, high-quality medical care to low-income, uninsured Arlington County adults through the generosity of donors and volunteers. All patients live in Arlington County and have incomes at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. Although most of their patients work, their jobs do not include access to health insurance. In recent years, an increasing number of new patients came to the AFC after losing their jobs and their insurance.
You can give to the mission of the month by using the special mission offering envelopes in the pews, online at www.flcva.org, or by scanning the QR code on the back of this bulletin.
First Communion Classes Continue On Saturday
Just a reminder to parents: the second half of First Communion instruction will take place this coming Saturday, June 11, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. The children will be baking the bread used for their First Communion next Sunday, June 12. For more information, or to sign up, please contact Pastor Yvette at firstname.lastname@example.org
More work days are planned for Saturdays, June 4, July 2, August 6, September 3 and October 1. This year, we’ll be setting up a “farm market” one Sunday per month, May – August, to sell extra produce at church. For details, and to sign up to help out with the garden, visit www.flcva.org/garden.
