Totenfest ~ Sunday, October 27, 2019
The celebration of Totenfest is the church’s time to remember those who have entered eternal life during the past year. It acknowledges our relationship with God who creates and who calls us home when our life’s journey is complete. On Sunday, October 27th, during our worship service at 10:00 a.m., we will light candles in remembrance of loved ones we have lost during the past year. If you wish to add a loved one contact the church office by Tuesday, Oct.15th in order to have time to prepare printed materials for the service.

Faith Community in Action

Crossroads Kids Club at Tioga One-by-one they arrive at the school – laden with curriculum notebooks – ready to show their identification – allowed to enter the fortress exactly at 3:00 pm – coming with one purpose in mind – to share the love of God and the Good News of Jesus Christ with the Tioga Wolves! (That’s the Tioga Elementary mascot – the Wolves). Our first afternoon of Crossroads Kids Club was a success! Thirty-five 3rd-5th grade students attended with 11 volunteer mentor/teachers from Faith Community.  The next week we were gifted with forty-five young people with a potential of fifty-four kids with completed sign-up sheets!! Thank God for the growth!! Now we need more mentors!! With awesome Bible storytelling, science projects, praying, singing, crafts, dancing, games, treats, and prizes, our Faith Community crusaders are prevailing even over the offers by parents of “Either soccer or Kids Club!”

Energized by compassion, commitment, and craziness – this team will continue telling the story of God’s Love every Wednesday during the school year – until the last Wolves shall lie down with the lambs!
