Last week I started a short sermon series that talks about our new vision statement: "A faith community that challenges the present to change the future to make Christ known".  This week we'll talk about the phrase to change the future.  Changing the future weighs heavily on whether we challenged the present, so if you missed last Sunday you can find a copy of the sermon here.  You're a big part of our vision, so I hope you'll make time to be present on Sunday.  Do you know anyone looking for a church home?  This is a great time to invite them so they can hear for themselves what we're all about.

On a different subject, Faith Des Peres is now a part of Amazon Smile.  All you need to do is to go to Amazon via, and just underneath the search bar at the top of the page you'll see a little drop down box with "supporting" next to it.  Click on that and search for Faith Des Peres and make us your preferred charity.  Every time you shop at Amazon using the link (which your computer will eventually memorize), a percentage of the proceeds from your shopping will come to us.  This is a great way to contribute to the church.  (FYI: keep using your Schnucks escrip card, too.  We get about $750/year from Schnucks.  Imagine what we can do at Amazon!)

Thanks everyone for your support and for making this church a great place to  serve!  

See you Sunday,


PS: PALS meet on Sunday at 9:30.  Our theme is Thanksgiving.  I'm looking forward to seeing everyone.
