Buddy Pack Volunteers Needed
The buddy packs program provides weekend meals for 12 students at Tillman Elementary school.  There are three different types of volunteer opportunities for this school year.  We need two volunteers to pack the food in bags, every week after church.  We nee one volunteer a week (on either Thursday or Friday) to deliver the food to Tillman Elementary School in Kirkwood.  Finally, we need one volunteer a month to unpack the food and stock it in the buddy packs closet. Sign up by using the links below.





Advent Devotion Book 2015
It’s hard to believe but it’s time to start thinking about Advent. Two years ago, the Worship Arts Committee started publishing an Advent devotion book to give people the opportunity to connect more fully with the church and to provide a worship guide to be used at home during the week. If you would like to submit a short (250 words or less) devotion and prayer for the book, please let Annie know. Submissions are are due November 1.

All Saints Sunday, November 1
Next week we’ll remember the saints of the church who have died this past year, and we’ll recognize the saints in our lives who have impacted us, loved us, molded us, and made us who we are.  This service will include a time of anointing and we’ll have a special “send off” of the scarves.  Do you know someone who has lost a friend or loved one this past year?  This is a good service to invite them to attend. 

Church-Wide Survey coming this week to your inbox!
In an effort to better understand how our members found Faith Des Peres and why they chose Faith Des Peres, the Membership Expansion Center is conducting a brief survey by email using surveymonkey.com.  It will only take you 2-3 minutes to complete the survey and your answers are anonymous.   We need all family members who are members of the church to complete the survey.  The Membership Expansion Center will use the results of the survey to identify our target audience and articulate our message in our marketing efforts.  Please know that our efforts to market the church are not just about increasing our numbers, they are about living out our vision to challenge the present to change the future to make Christ known.  We appreciate your assistance with aiding in this effort.  The Membership Expansion Team
