Dreams for Today and Tomorrow
If you haven't had a chance to attend one of our Discussing the Dream gatherings, there is still an opportunity. You are welcome to come to the Gathering Space at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 10, or to Barb Abbett's home in Clayton at 7 p.m., Tuesday, May 13. Thank you, Bernie & Leila Davis and Clarissa Schuller-Meyer & Jason Meyer for hosting gatherings on May 7 and May 9. As we expected, these are wonderful times to share stories about why we are members of FDP, our hopes and dreams for our ministry and enjoy fellowship and food with others in our church family. We also take some time to talk about the importance of the annual stewardship and Gathering Space loan reduction campaigns to fulfill our dreams for today and tomorrow. Please contact Terry Baker, firstname.lastname@example.org or 314-313-8499, if you can attend the gathering on May 10 or May 13.
Dare to Dream Dedication and Advanced Pledges, Sunday, May 18
Please mark your calendars now for Sunday, May 18. That is the day we will be dedicating our pledges for the Dare to Dream for Today (annual stewardship) and Dare to Dream for Tomorrow (Gathering Space loan reduction) campaigns. We are pleased to announce that as a result of advance gifts from members of the Session and many of those leading the Dare to Dream for Tomorrow campaign, we have received pledges totaling $192,940 toward our goal of $285,000. Thank you for your generosity and for leading by example with your time, talents and treasures! We are asking all FDP members and friends to give prayerful consideration to their pledges and bring them to church on May 18 or mail them to the church office prior to that time.
