Help us with Food for Fellowship!
As you may know, we at Faith enjoy refreshments and snacks as well as fellowship after Sunday worship. Our volunteer hosts are always happy to provide these delights for us, especially those dishes they know we love. As you can imagine, this can get expensive - especially for those who host fellowship for us regularly. In appreciation for the good food they bring to us every week, we would like to help them out by bringing in food for fellowship. This will help their pocket books as well as our fellowship pantry! The best foods and drinks to bring in are those with a long shelf life such as sealed cookies, crisps, bottled tea, crackers and other snacks, but especially refreshments! Thanks!
The Altar Guild prepares the sanctuary for worship services. Members are responsible for the care and cleaning of the altar paraments, and are very knowledgeable in the aspects of the liturgy and Church seasons. There is no experience necessary, and training will be provided. If you would like to help serve the congregation by filling this vital role, please call the church office at 386-734-2791.

Give the Worship Folders!
Giving the worship folders by making a donation of $20 is a great way to celebrate or commemorate a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, retirement, or promotion! You can also give the Sanctuary Candle by making a donation of $30. You can find envelopes designed especially for this purpose in the Communication Center at the rear of the Sanctuary, or simply make your donation and call the office with your commemoration. You can also make your donation and commemoration online using your credit or debit card.
Please sign up to host Fellowship! Sign-up sheet is in the Fellowship Hall at the coffee service area.
Commemorate it by giving the weekly Worship Folders (bulletins) or the monthly Sanctuary Candle. Call the church office at (386)734-2791 to find out how. If you would like to celebrate a special occasion with flowers or live plants give Ruth Erickson a call at 386 734-9697.
