Sermon Series Continues November 15 and 22
Vision 20/20

At Faith Des Peres we’ve set a vision to challenge the present to change the future to make Christ known.  But what does that mean?  How do we do that?  Can I really do that?  Join us as we explore together the answers to these questions and how you are vital to our vision.


Poinsettia Orders    
It’s time to order poinsettias for Christmas. There is a sign-up sheet in the Gathering Space. The cost is $10 per plant. Please note on your check that your payment is for poinsettias.


The Christmas Giving tree is around the corner!
You may still be eating Halloween candy and not have finalized plans for Thanksgiving, but we are already planning the Christmas giving tree at Faith Des Peres. Our tree will go up on Sunday, November 22nd and be covered with ornaments. As in past years, each ornament will have the name and age of a person (child or mother) and a few ideas of what they would like for Christmas. The children are from Southside Early Childhood Center and Lydia’s House and the mothers are from Lydia’s House; both organizations we support over the years. There will also be some ornaments that just say food or gas gift card. We ask that you gather as many ornaments as you want to, be sure to indicate to a volunteer which ornament you took, and purchase gifts cards or gifts, valuing no more than $25 per gift. The ornaments will be up for two Sundays (Nov 22 and Nov 29). Then bring your unwrapped gift, with the ornament attached, to church by Sunday, December 6. We will have a light luncheon party after church and then we will deliver the gifts to the organizations in time for them to enjoy a wonderful Christmas. We have spoken to volunteers at both agencies. They commented on how much they appreciate and count on Faith Des Peres to help their families at Christmas. And - for some of us who no longer have small children – a fun way to get down the toy aisle again! Thanks for bringing joy to our community in a meaningful way. Have questions? Ask Elizabeth Pribor or Dianne Modrell.


Christmas Wreaths
Henry and Tommy Epling are selling wreaths (various sizes and prices) for Boy Scout Troop #457 before and after church this Sunday, November 15.  Wreaths will be available for pick-up on November 29 at church.  If you won’t be at church, they can deliver them to your house.  Payment is preferred at the time you place you your order.  Thank you for your support!
