There's a lot happening at Faith Des Peres!  Rev. Joe Marting will be leading worship this weekend while Annie is out of the office (if you have an emergency, please contact Marie). Remember to bring items for the School Supply Drive ... sign up for the float trip ... register for the new PW Bible Study ...  "like" the new FDP Facebook page ... and make the most of this beautiful spring-like summer that God has given us!  ~Marie

Are You Ready for a Float Trip?

Faith Des Peres is a “Social” Place!
That’s right, we’re on Facebook. The address is Your Flat Jesus photos are on there, as are Community Garden photos and information. Important announcements and events are being posted (float trip information, etc.). Please let Marie in the office know if you do NOT want any photos of you or your family posted on Facebook. “Like” us ... then SHARE our posts on your wall so others can see what’s happening at Faith Des Peres. And if you’re courageous, “invite” your friends to like our page also.  (If you don't know how to "share" or "invite", call Marie in the office.) There’s a LOT going on at Faith Des Peres—let’s share it with everyone!

Please Remember Your Items for the School Supply Drive 
Mission and Ministry is sponsoring a school supply drive this summer in coordination with the Circle of Concern, running from June 29th – August 3rd.  Please help give children a good start to the school year with your donation of school supplies. If you cannot bring items on a Sunday, please drop them off when the church is open. Click here for a list of needed items.   A big, bright box is in the Gathering Space for school items.

New PW Bible Study Beginning August 27th
Join us for a new Presbyterian Women’s study based on the book of 2 Corinthians entitled, “Reconciling Paul,” by Elizabeth Hinson-Hasty. Our first meeting will be Wednesday, August 27th at 9:30am, led by Joanna Gerst. We’d love to see you, so register and pick up a book in the Gathering Space. Or let Marie know you’d like to attend.

Do You Make Online Payments to FDP?
If you make your stewardship and/or capital campaign payments through your online banking, please take a moment and adjust the memo line to read either “capital” or “stewardship” for clarification to the church office and Sunday counters. Thank you!

Don’t Take a Break from Making a Difference!
Summer is break time, but not for contributions...  Use your Schnucks e-scrip card (or pick up one in the Gathering Space). It costs you nothing, but Schnucks contributes a percentage of your purchase to Faith Des Peres every time you swipe it at the checkout. The contributions you generate simply by shopping at Schnucks (which you do anyway) helps build a stronger church and allows us to do more for others. Enjoy your summer and be sure to keep up the good work – use your red Schnucks Community or Customer Card every time you shop. Need more information? Contact the church office or visit Schnucks online. The FDP Group ID # is 164503349.
