Welcome to the Cass Family, New Church Members
Cody, Katie and Carter Cass live in Southampton in St. Louis City. Carter is 9.5 months old and is crawling all over the place. He is the sweetest baby and so much fun. Cody works at Express Scripts in Specialty Pharmacy and Katie works at Barnes Jewish Hospital as a Nurse Anesthetist. We love the outdoors and spend as much time as we can at our family property in St. Clair, MO. We are very excited to join the FDP family.

Pals Program Update/Adult Learning Opportunity, October 18, 9:30am
Young people and their mentors met for the first time as Pals in September.  They played a Jenga-type get to know you game, and some of them sat together during worship.  Pals meet again on Sunday, October 18 at 9:30 in the Gathering Space.  Coffee and doughnuts will be provided along with a table topic for conversation. 

While the Pals meet, their parents also meet for a time of study that is open to anyone in the congregation.  In October, Pastor Annie will lead a discussion on “Gun Violence-Gospel Values: Mobilizing in Response to God’s Call”.  Are you tired of hearing about shootings and agree that prayer is not enough?  Come, listen, learn and get mobilized.
