Last Friday about 20 of us gathered for the first ever Faith Des Peres Chili Cook-Off. It was a great night! The chili was excellent and so were the desserts. A big thank you to Terry Baker and her Church Life team for organizing the event.
Last Saturday the Session met with our Vision 20/20 consultant to collate all of the information we’ve gathered thus far into some very rough draft goals. I appreciate the time many of you have taken to attend the Vision 20/20 gatherings to share your thoughts with us. I continue to be invigorated by everyone’s input and feelings about the ministry we share at Faith Des Peres. If you haven’t been able to attend one of the gatherings but you want to share your thoughts about the church, please talk with me or any member of the Session.
And last, but certainly not least, Lent is traditionally a time when Christians remember Christ’s suffering and self-denial by either giving up something (like certain foods and drinks) or taking on a new spiritual practice (giving, fasting, prayer). It is easy in our Christian life to drift away from our commitments to God. Seasons like Lent help us redirect our focus, and in worship our sermons will help you do just that. It is easy for worship to become something we do when we aren’t busy with a trip, game, or event. This season, I invite you to make worship your priority as we study Jesus’ core teachings.
See you in church,
