Summer Sunday School

Teachers Needed

Can You Teach a Sunday or Two? - Since we haven't found someone to lead the Preschool-Kindergarten Sunday School class this summer, we are asking for several volunteers to sign up to lead a Sunday or two.  Signup sheet is in the OpportUNITY center and materials will be provided soon.  See Bonnie if you have any questions.  

Flagfest Parade Float

Walkers Needed

The Flagfest Parade will be held on Sat. June 12.  We are hoping to host a church parade float again and have walkers who can hand out candy to the children on the route.

If you can help decorate, walk, ride a bike, or whatever to help hand out candy; or have children who can ride the float, please sign up in the OpportUNITY Corner. 

Children who ride the float will be given special goodie bags to thank them for representing FELC! Drinks will be provided for all!

Iowa Lutheran School Tuition Organization

75% Tax Credit

A Great Deal Got Even Better: New for 2021, those who donate to ILSTO will receive a 75% state tax credit. For example, a donation of $5,000 will generate a voucher for $3,750 state tax credit. In addition, 25% may also be a Federal income tax charitable contribution. A donor is able to designate which Iowa Lutheran School they would like their donation to benefit. Wouldn’t it be great to help a student attend IGLLS instead of paying taxes? A change for 2021, donations will stay at the designated school up to 70% of need. Call Dewey Torkelson at 712-260-2991 for more information.
