What's Happening At Faith:

Week of December 10th to December 17th

THIS WEEK AT FAITH:
Tue Dec 11: Interfaith Kitchen 5 pm
Wed Dec 12: Potluck 5:30 pm; Advent worship 6 pm
Sun Dec 16: Worship 9:30 a.m. Mission Sunday’s goes to Local Youth Activities; Advent class 11 am.

The Sanctuary Candle has been dedicated by Pastor George Willis to the glory of God and in memory of Mr. and Mrs. Claude E. Willis.

Living Nativity
Join Faith on Saturday from 5 to 7 pm on the 22nd of December for our Annual Live Nativity! This is one of our most loved events and this year you’ll enjoy a Spaghetti Dinner – it’s free - hot chocolate and cookies! The Christmas story will be told through music, theater and carols.

From Pastor Keith
Advent is here and it’s a great time to study the Bible! For the four Sundays of Advent at 11 am, we will have a class titled “Introduction to Luke and Acts.” Advent is from Sunday, December 2 to Monday, December 24 this year. Spend Sundays in December with Pastor Keith and the bible!

We have a Library!
We now have a tall bookshelf in the fellowship hall to house our informal library. Bring books to share, take them to read, keep them or return them as you wish. There will be room for magazines, Puzzles, and DVDs. The bottom shelf will be for the children. See Christine Medrano for details.

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!

Altar Guild
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.

Second Sunday Sharing
Faith's Outreach Ministry will be continuing our partnership with St Barnabas to help their Faith at Work Food Pantry! On the second Sunday of each month, everyone will be asked to bring a specific non-perishable food item the pantry needs. To find out what to bring, click HERE!

FROG Ministries
In partnership with our friends at FROG (Forever Relying On God) Ministries, we now have a collection barrel for donations of new or gently used clothing, baby items, toys and other small items. If you have something large to donate, such as furniture, please contact the office to make arrangements.

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.

Fellowship Gathering
Please sign up to host Fellowship! Sign-up sheet is in the Fellowship Hall at the coffee service area.

Special Occasion?
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.
