Adult Discussion Group (ADG) Book Study

Call or email Barb Abbett for more information. 721-3292

January Sunday School
The kids are learning all about Sarah and Abraham in January.  Jason Meyer is leading them – he’ll be ready to collect the kids for Sunday School after the Old Testament reading.  Keep an eye out for him and join the fun!

Game Night, January 23, 6:30 pm
Join us for GAME NIGHT in the Gathering Space on Friday evening, January 23 at 6:30 pm.  Bring your favorite board games, drinks, and a snack to share.  Fun for the whole family.  Don't be SORRY.  Take a RISK, and have the time of your LIFE! 

Next food packing at Food Outreach is Saturday January 31st at 8 am
Want to know how you can make a difference in people’s lives in just a few short hours? Come join members of Faith Des Peres at Food Outreach on Saturday morning January 31. There we will pack food into individual meals that will be given to individuals living with HIV/AIDS and cancer who are living at or below 400% of the poverty level. We start at 8am, and are done before 11 am – often by 10 am.  If there is interest, sometimes we go out for breakfast afterwards. Food Outreach requests that volunteers be 11 years old and in 5th grade. We need to have at least 10 individuals and they strongly prefer 15 – so know that we NEED YOUR HELP. Please sign by emailing Elizabeth Pribor at

We're going back April 24 - 26, 2015!  The church plans two happy hours on Friday and Saturday nights, and one brief worship service on Sunday morning, but the rest of the time is yours to enjoy as you want.  There’s fun for everyone – horseback riding, ponies, zip lines, fishing, biking, relaxing, mini golf – the sky’s the limit at Trout Lodge.  It’s a great weekend away.  Reserve your spot by calling the Trout Lodge reservation desk at (573)438-2154 before January 31.  The food is good, and the room includes a private bath and hotel type amenities. For more information, pick up a handout in the Gathering Space, or call Terry Baker @ (314)313-8499.
