A Note from Pastor Marilyn

Dear Faith Des Peres Church Family,

Construction continues with the phased removal, grading and paving of our new parking lot!  The entire project with the possible exception of some new landscape plantings in the front of the church is to be finished by Halloween.  Thank you for your patience as we become a construction zone for these next two months!

Our PALS program is taking a break for now, so it will not meet this Sunday.

Our guest preacher this Sunday will be new UKirk St. Louis pastor the Rev. Max Hill.  I hope you will particularly make the most of this opportunity to meet Max and hear about his plans for the UKirk ministry.

As my on “study leave” September 9-22 to move into our new home continues, our guest preacher September 22 will be the Rev. Carol DeVaughan.

In anticipation of receiving Presbytery approval for our Mission and Ministry Study Report and permission to form a Pastor Nominating Committee the Session has called a Congregation meeting following worship Sunday, September 29 to elect a Pastor Nominating Committee.  This is the next step in our transitional journey in preparation for searching for your next called and installed pastor.

I look forward to seeing you in and around our church as we share in mission and ministry together!

 

Shalom in Christ Jesus,

Pastor Marilyn

Dear Faith Des Peres Church Family,

 We are now under construction with the beginning of the phased removal, grading and paving of our new parking lot!  The entire project with the possible exception of some new landscape plantings in the front of the church is to be finished by Halloween.  Thank you for your patience as we become a construction zone for these next two months!

 My sermon message this Sunday will be “Molding and Shaping Our Church” from Jeremiah 18:1-11.  This is the story of God sending the prophet to a potter’s house where the Divine Potter then gave him a message for the people.  We will celebrate Communion this Sunday and please bring your items for Feeding the Flock.

 This Sunday will also be our first Disciples Gathering following the children’s message this fall.  Clare Dingus will be teaching our elementary children on the second and fourth Sundays of the month.

 We will also have our second Buddy Packing day of the new school year after worship this Sunday.

 I will be on “study leave” September 9-22 to move into our new home.  Our guest preacher September 15 will be new UKirk St. Louis pastor the Rev. Max Hill and our guest preacher September 22 will be the Rev. Carol DeVaughan.

 I look forward to seeing you in and around our church as we share in mission and ministry together!

 Shalom in Christ Jesus,

 Pastor Marilyn

Dear Faith Des Peres Church Family,

 Worship this Sunday will be a Hymn Sing service created from your favorite hymns by the Worship Arts Center at 10:30 a.m. at the Old Des Presbyterian Church on Geyer Road.  This will be our last service at the Old Des Peres Church this summer.  We will not celebrate Communion this Sunday but will instead share it together on September 8.

 I will be on vacation August 31-September 6 to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary September 4.  Our anniversary present to ourselves is closing on our new home that day!

 I look forward to seeing you in and around our church as we share in mission and ministry together!

 Shalom in Christ Jesus,

 Pastor Marilyn
