Help Needed Saturday, August 9th!
In order to make our building more “user-friendly” to all of the groups that use it – including ours – we need to rearrange and clean out a few rooms. We’re organizing a work day on Saturday, August 9th, from 9am-1pm, or sooner if we finish early. We will be washing walls and rearranging furniture in our newly-carpeted Adult Conference Room (an outside group is providing the carpeting); consolidating and organizing the toys in the nursery; and moving/organizing the holiday decorations that are upstairs in the balcony area to the other room up there, the bell room. Bring work gloves, perhaps cleaning supplies (disposable wet wipes are ideal), hand truck if you have one, muscles, and a great attitude. Lunch will be provided.  Barb Abbett will be organizing this and will be in touch with everyone that signs up to help. Please let Marie or Barb know if you can help, and there will also be a sign-up sheet in the Gathering Space.  Thank you! 

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.

Share FDP
There’s a LOT going on at Faith Des Peres—let’s share it with everyone! “Like” us on Facebook then SHARE our posts on your wall so others can see what’s happening here. And if you’re courageous, “invite” your friends to like our page also. (If you don’t know how to do this, ask Marie.)

Directory Update
Please let Marie in the church office know if any of your contact information has changed since the last directory update in September of 2013. A new directory should be distributed in the fall. 

Do You Make Online Payments to FDP?
If you make payments to FDP 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. This will also help ensure accurate end-of-year statements for your tax records. Thank you!
