Dear Faith Des Peres Community,

This week I’ll conclude my sermon series on our vision: to be a faith community that challenges the present to change the future to make Christ known.  This week we’ll look at the last phrase, to make Christ known.  We make Christ known by welcoming people, connecting with them, and caring for them.  Or, as the Apostle Paul says, by serving as “ambassadors for Christ”.  How are you serving as Christ’s ambassador in your day to day life?  Wear your FDP t-shirt on Sunday as we close out the series! 

Don’t forget Game Night TONIGHT (November 20)! The fun begins at 7pm in the Gathering Space.  Bring a game, munchie or drink to share.  All ages are welcome!  And, Saturday at 9am there’s a church-wide clean-up.  There are tasks for all ages and abilities.

Finally, Advent begins one week from Sunday!  This year’s theme is “I Believe Even When . . .”  Look for more information below, but take some time to think about who you can invite to worship with us during Advent.  It’s one of our best attended times of the year, more so than even Lent and Easter.  During the short days, I think people are looking for some light, and in this crazy world, I think people are looking for hope.  You have it to offer!  Who can you invite to join you?

See you in Church.
