We welcome Rev. Robert Berger
The New Year blesses us with Pastor Robert Lee Berger and the ministry of Food for the Poor. The Reverend was ordained June 15, 1969 in St. Paul Lutheran Church, Reading, Ohio. Since August 2011, after more than 40 years serving in ELCA parishes in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida, he has been privileged to be a speaker for Food for the Poor. He also earned an additional Master’s degree in pastoral psychology and counseling. Pastor Bob lives in Orange City, Florida with his wife Connie. They have two grown and married daughters, also living in Florida, with five marvelous grandchildren. Pastor Berger will join us on the 13th of January. There will be a meet and greet after service.
See more about Pastor Berger and Food for the Poor in our January newsletter.
On the third Sunday of each month there will be a second collection for various needs of the church. The collection on January 20 will go toward Worship Supplies.
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.
