THANK YOU to our church family for all of the prayers, thoughts, phone calls, texts, cards, and well wishes that were sent our way following my back surgery, and then to support us through the COVID virus. We are so fortunate and thankful for our church family. We are doing much better and are back to work. Blessings to you all! Here’s to 2021! Deb and Hunter Clark
THANK YOU to everyone who attended the special congregational meeting. It was a unanimous vote yes at FLC and CTS to sell the parsonage. Keep the Executive Committee in your prayers as we move forward. We will keep you informed of progress.
THANK YOU for the cards, texts, and most importantly the prayers offered to our family these past weeks. We most certainly felt the love of our church family helping us navigate the days. Peace be with you all of you. Merry Christmas too! – Denny & Patti Bisgard
