What's New at FLC?
Volunteer at the Giving Garden!
Faith Lutheran members are invited to join the efforts at The Giving Garden at Rolling Ridge in North Andover!
The garden is an interfaith community garden started in 2015 by members of South Church of Andover. Fresh produce is grown for donation to the local food pantry, NIN (Neighbors in Need), and then distributed throughout the Merrimack Valley
to those in need. You can help by volunteering to help do
gardening work! What a great way to get outside and
enjoy the fresh air, and "fill your cup" by helping our
community! Plan a work-date with a friend, or visit on your
own! See South Church's website
or Facebook page
for details, shifts, and sign-up information!

Become a FLC Care Shepherd....
