Needed: Candy for Easter Eggs ASAP!!
The Easter Egg Hunt, held yearly at the Old Des Peres Church (Old Meeting House), is a community-wide event that attracts about 100 people, not just members of FDP. We’re in need of CANDY with which to stuff the eggs. Needed are individually wrapped pieces of candy that will fit inside plastic eggs. Also, if you can help stuff the eggs after worship on Palm Sunday (April 13th) and/or hide them the morning of the hunt (April 19th), please sign up in the Gathering Space, contact Nancy Hope or Clarissa Schuller-Meyer, or contact the church office. Thank you!
GO! Sunday set for April 27!!
What is GO! Sunday? On one Sunday, the Sunday after Easter, the members and friends of Faith Des Peres put our faith into action in works of ministry to the community. While as a congregation we are involved in serving the community throughout the year, this day is special because we all participate together. There are sign-up sheets in the Gathering Space and online submissions are greatly appreciated. Pick an activity (recycling drive, community garden, blanket-making, planting a garden at Lydia’s house, or lunch preparation), let us know if you need childcare, dig up your GO! t-shirt from last year (or let us know you need one), and let’s GO! Contact Elizabeth Pribor, Whitney Payne, Clarissa Schuller-Meyer or Erica Abbett if you have questions, or get more information on the website.
