The FLPC Education Ministry has made it possible for FLPC to begin to experiment with podcasts to get the Good News out into the world beyond our walls. Ed and Ellen are working on two separate podcasts! See below for descriptions and how to find them. We hope you will listen and subscribe to these two podcasts! Let us know what you think. Stay tuned!
FLPC’s podcast is where we are invited to talk frankly about what needs to change in us, in the Church and in the world, even as we follow and worship a God who doesn’t change. We say that our Church’s purpose is “transforming head, heart, and hands in the service of Jesus Christ!” What does this transformation look like? On Spotify.com or Google Podcasts, search for “Forest Lake Presbyterian Church” or “Transforming Faith.” Or click this link: https://open.spotify.com/show/2M8f8qPl5voN2YWA2tTEVn
Ellen Skidmore, Rabbi Jonathan Case, and Imam Omar Shaheed have joined forces to continue our tradition of interfaith conversations in creating a second podcast series. The Christian, Jewish, and Muslim faith all share Abraham as a father of our faith, and we invite you to a lively and respectful interfaith discussion. We do not always agree, but we all love God, and we recognize that every human being is made in God’s image. Join us as we talk about issues that affect our everyday lives. From spiritual disciplines and Scriptural instructions for living, to discussions of immigration and mental health, please join us at Abraham’s Table. On Spotify.com or Apple Podcasts search for “Abraham’s Table”. Or click this link: https://open.spotify.com/show/6GOlaVIBFa0z6JfAfKH1N8
Non-perishable Food - We have an ongoing collection of non-perishable food for Rehoboth United Methodist Food Pantry. Pasta, mac and cheese are always needed, but any meal/pantry staple is greatly appreciated. There is a collection box downstairs at church.
Recycling - Our Environmental Stewardship team keeps this church focused on the ways we can take care of God's Creation. We accept dental hygiene items to be recycled. Please make sure they are clean: used toothbrushes, empty dental floss containers, empty toothpaste tubes, toothbrush and toothpaste outer packaging. These items will be recycled through Terracycle, and Environmental Stewardship will be paid a small stipend for these products.
