Thank you to Pastor Tom and Linda for preparing such a meaningful service, and to the choir, music team, and all who attended the installation.

     FCLC has signed up to cook dinner at the Ronald McDonald House on Monday, October 16th and Monday, November 13th. We still need 4 - 6 volunteers. You arrive at 4PM and are usually done cooking and cleaning up by 6:30PM. If you are unable to volunteer but would still like to help you could help provide the food that we will be cooking. RMH usually contacts us about a week before our scheduled night and asks us if we have an idea for the menu and how many people they show will be at the house that night. We can set the menu at any time but we have to remember that if it is not sealed from the store it must be prepared at the house. Please contact John Wiemer, , and let him know if you are able to help cook.


    On November 4th from 10am to 1pm there will be a seminar on the subject of Cancer Killers.

We are asking for a $10.00 free-will donation and all proceeds will go to the establishment of a new free Integrative health and Wellness Clinic run by the National Integrative Health & Wellness Project Inc., a 501c3 charitable organization run by Bob Neugebauer.
