Sept. 6 - FLY Nights Begin - Phones & Faith

FLY meets on Wednesday nights from 7 to 8:30pm in the FLY Room. We'll spend some time getting to know each other, play games, and have a discussion about our faith in the real world.

Sept. 10 - FLY Forum Starts - Bible - Literal or Inspired?

On Sundays, FLY meets in the FLY room from 9:45am through 10:45am. During this time we'll get to know each other, participate in engaging activities, and talk about God.

Sept. 13 - FLY Night - Modesty and Clothing Rules

Join us from 7 to 8:30 as we talk about clothing and modesty and seeing what the Bible has to say about these things!

Sept. 17 - FLY Forum - Psalms and Worship Music

*Feed My Starving Children Form Due TODAY

Did you know there's a book of songs in the Bible? We'll be discussing this and worship music.

Sept. 20 - FLY Night - Outing to Feed My Starving Children with Confirmation - FORM NEEDED BY Sept. 17

Confirmation and FLY will be doing a joint service project at Feed My Starving Children in Aurora on Wednesday, September 20. Students will meet at Faith at 5:45 pm. From Faith, we'll carpool to the Feed My Starving Children site where we'll serve from 7 – 8:45 pm. We'll return to Faith by 9:15 pm. Though we realize this will be a longer than normal event on a school night, we believe that this service project is worthwhile and will give your student both an opportunity to serve and to form lasting memories with their family of Faith. Five other things to note: Students should eat BEFORE they come. Students must wear closed-toed shoes to participate. Because this event will be held off site, to sign up for it, each student must return this completed permission slip no later than Sunday, September 17.

Here's a link to the permission slip:

Sept. 24 - FLY Forum - Mission and Service Trip Announcement for Parents and Students

Every year our FLY and Confirmation Students have a few trip opportunities they can go on to help them grow in their faith! This includes an annual winter retreat, a combined FLY and Confirmation mission and service trip, as well as a FLY Trip. During the education hour from 9:45 to 10:45, parents and students are invited to join us in Luther Hall to learn about the opportunities this year, including learning about where we'll be going this summer. This meeting will contain all the information you need - parents and students are invited to join us.

Sept. 27 - FLY Night - Honesty - are white lies okay?

Join us in the FLY room from 7pm to 8:30pm!

Oct. 1 - Last Year's Mission Trip Forum for Parents and Students

From 9:45 to 10:45, join us in Luther Hall to hear about last year's mission trips from our Confirmation and FLY students! It's a great way to hear about last year's summer mission trip and see what may be in store for the trips this summer! This forum is for adults, Confirmation and FLY students.
