Other Items of Importance

2020 Church Council
Information from and about our current church council (link)
El Salvador Mission
We continually collect toothbrushes and bandaids for the El Salvador Mission of Healing/Family Wellness Fair.  Please deposit them in the labeled box in the narthex.  
Chum Food Shelf:
CHUM Food Shelf has asked French River Lutheran to be the "Ramen Chicken Noodle Soup" church.  This means they'd like us to contribute 100 packages, or the monetary equivalent, per month to the food shelf.  Be sure to indicate "for CHUM-Ramen soup" on the memo line of a check or on a special giving envelope when donating.
CHUM also encourages the use of reusable bags (vs. plastic grocery bags) by those who donate non-perishables and those who receive them.  Bag donations may be left near the wicker baskets in the narthex.  Thank you!

Order for Healing Service:
Typically the third Sunday of the month with blood pressure checks provided during first twenty minutes of coffee fellowship time.

If public schools are closed due to weather conditions, so are church activities.

Let's stay connected!  See "Documents" for the Celebrate insert (lessons and prayers).
