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!
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.
