What's Happening At Faith:

Week of August 13th to August 20th

THIS WEEK AT FAITH:
Mon Aug 13: First day of School for Staff.
Tue Aug 14: Interfaith Kitchen 5:00 p.m.
Wed Aug 15: Potluck 5:30 p.m.
Sun Aug 19: Worship 9:30 a.m.; Mission Sunday’s collection goes to Office Supplies; Rally Day! 12-4 p.m.

The Sanctuary Candle has been dedicated by Pastor George Willis to the glory of God and in memory of Pastor & Mrs. Art Greenwalt.

Hand Bell News: No Bells after Wednesdays’ Potluck – instead bells will ring after fellowship on Sunday. Beginning bells will be offered in the fall!

Rally Day!
Rally Day will be held on the church grounds noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug 19th. Faith Lutheran and Children’s House Montessori School invite everyone to the event, which kicks off the school year. There will be plenty of food, snow cones, a water slide, games and other events for this neighborhood event so don’t miss out!

We Need Your Help!
Worship Assistants are needed. We need people to help out as Ushers, Acolytes, Communion Assistants and Lectors. Our volunteers are slowing down plus there is a need for an extra Usher every Sunday. If you can help out anywhere here, or need your name removed, please let Bob Bebee, or any council person know. Again, you are needed! The more people that volunteer, the fewer times you will be needed per year. Thanks!

School Kits
We are collecting again for school kits! What should be included? 4 70-sheet notebooks, 1 30-centimeter ruler – or one with inches and centimeter markings, 1 pair of blunt scissors, 1 box of 16 or 24 crayons, 5 unsharpened #2 pencils bound by rubber band, 5 black or blue ballpoint pens bound by rubber band, 1 pencil sharpener, 1 2.5 inch eraser, and 1 drawstring backpack-style cloth bag.

All items should be new and in good condition. Remove any excess packaging, pack all items in bag and close. Please do not donate any items decorated with a U.S. flag, patriotic or military symbols, or references to the armed forces, including camouflage.

School kit handouts are available in the communication center in the fellowship hall.

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.
