Welcome Confirmands!
This Sunday we’ll welcome our confirmands Gwen Emery, Tommy Epling, John Onken and Annie Wyman into membership at Faith Des Peres. They have been meeting and studying all year in preparation for this Sunday. They will each present a statement of faith during worship.  Afterwards, there will be cake and punch in the Gathering Space.  Join us to welcome them! 

Dare to Dream Pledge Dedication
We will also be dedicating our pledges for the Dare to Dream for Today (annual stewardship) and Dare to Dream for Tomorrow (Gathering Space loan reduction) campaigns. If you’ve not done so already, we are asking all FDP members and friends to give prayerful consideration to their pledges and bring them to church this Sunday or mail them to the church office by Wednesday, May 28th.  (Print extra Dare to Dream for Tomorrow pledge cards here; print extra Dare to Dream for Today pledge cards here.) We are pleased to announce that, to date, advance pledges and gifts to the Gathering Space loan reduction campaigns total $207,940.  Stewardship pledges to date total $50,840.  We have long known that Faith Des Peres members and friends are very generous with their time, treasures and talents. This is another demonstration of that and an indication that we give out of a sense of abundance that acknowledges the blessings of God's generosity to us.  Thank you so very much for your gifts and for all you do for Faith Des Peres!
