Friedens Memorial Brick Walk

This is a rendering of the Memorial Brick Walk being placed at the west side of the Church. It is not too late to honor or remember a loved one, friend, pet, mentor, business group,or anyone dear to your heart, by ordering a personalized inscribed brick to be placed in the Memorial. See below for details and order information. Still have questions call the church office 610-488-6260. And please join us on June 11th for Worship and after the 9:30 am service we will hold a brief dedication ceremony for the Memorial. This will be a continuing work in process as more bricks are ordered and added.

Friedens Brick Walk Memorial

The bricks will be 4 x 8 inches with up to three line of text available (each line a maximum of 15 characters). Rather than being advertisements for your business or organization, we would request that the message inscribed would honor one, or a group of people, that you would wish to remember. We are asking that the first line of each brick begin with either 1) honoring, 2) celebrating, 3) remembering, or 4) Glorifying God. Please print clearly.

From the Pastor’s Heart

                 Well, This is What…

    Since Pastor Rob began his last newsletter article with So, Now What?I thought I would follow up with, Well, This is What“.

It seems that the transition is complete. You should have received your letter by now that I will be serving Friedens for at least the next year. It is an honor and privilege for me as, after supply preaching for almost two years, I have come to love the people of Friedens very much.

It can be a scary time when you dont know what is going to happen next. I know that I always have anxiety before a change. But, I am excited and looking forward to whats ahead. We are doing some great ministry at Friedens. You can see that by all of the things going on in this newsletter and by how long it takes to do the announcements on a Sunday — thats a GOOD problem’. That means there is life here. I want to take a moment and thank all of you who work so hard to continue the work of Jesus in this church and in the community. I would name you all, but my over 50 brain means I will probably forget someone.

Someone said to me recently, Well, youre at the helm now“. Actually, I would like to think that God is at the helm, holding on to us with His loving arms and gracious heart. So, hang on folks, its going to be quite a ride.

In Gods Service,

Carin’ Karen

P.S. You will see me sign many things this way, because I truly care, thus, I am Caring Karen.

 

 

Attic Scavenger Hunt

Ever wondered what is in the attic at Friedens, well wonder no more. Some enterprising souls went on a scavenger hunt with pictures to prove what they found. With the Church being 120 years old it was hard to visualize what might be awaiting. And no we do not have bats in our belfry! What they found was interesting to say the least, and certainly not what was expected. See the pictures to satisfy your curiosity. Thanks to the group for sharing their trek with those of us who are not so brave or who could never have negotiated that ladder!

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to our new website, we are still under construction but are making strides now! Please take notice to the facebook link, the google map with directions, and Pastor has started to blog!  We look forward to posting more pictures, and adding History and Genealogy pages as soon as possible. We want to thank everyone for their feedback and patience as we are learning as we go.  Have a blessed day!
