A Word from Pastor Junie

In the midst of August heat it is hard to believe that school starts soon, the official sign that Fall near!  So don’t miss this Sunday’s CHURCH IN THE PARK!  Bring food to have fun and fellowship.  Come share faith in worship before we eat!  Children and youth, remember to bring your backpack for the “Blessing of the Backpacks” during worship.  Faith Formation Center has a small gift for kids’ backpack as well – so don’t miss out - come enjoy the last days of summer as community.  Let us rejoice and be glad for all God is doing among us and through us!  This is a great time to see old friends, renew acquaintances, and begin anew. Come join us!

CIRCLE OF CONCERN

It’s a communion Sunday which means the kids will pull the wagon and collect food for Circle of Concern during the offering time. The idea behind Feeding the Flock is that while we are spiritually fed at Christ’s table, we are called to physically feed others. This is an important outreach ministry of Faith Des Peres, and is one that gets everyone involved. Even if you forgot food today, you can always donate food to Circle of Concern by dropping it off at the church. Thank you

Mark your calendars for our fourth Church in the Park worship service! Church will be at Scout Shelter in Kirkwood Park.  There is ample parking near to the pavilion and space for the kids to run around. We’ll bless the backpacks of all our students and afterwards enjoy a BBQ lunch. The church provides burgers, dogs, drinks and paper products. It’s potluck for the sides, salad and deserts.  It will be lots of fun, so we hope to see you there.  Wear your t-shirts! Please sign-up in the Gathering Space or by replying to this email to RSVP. Let us know how many are coming.
