Dear Faith Des Peres Community,

This Sunday we’ll kick-off our 2015-2016 stewardship campaign “Still Daring to Dream”.  Various church committees will talk about the mission and ministry they (you!) have been engaged in the past year and how your stewardship pledges have supported their (your!) ministry.  I hope you’ll be present to hear the good news they have to share.  We also will host a guest from Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA).  They’re in town for their annual meeting, and I was asked if we wanted someone from PDA to come and tell us about their ministry.  As many of you know, the One Great Hour of Sharing offering we collected on Easter supports the work of PDA. 

We will collect pledges for the “Still Daring to Dream” campaign on May 10, and we’ll celebrate the conclusion of the campaign and our program year on May 31 with a special church in the park worship service.  Church will be held at Kirkwood Park in the covered Lions Pavilion (where the Greentree Book Fair is held), and afterwards we’ll enjoy a BBQ lunch.  We’re looking for some grill masters!  Plus, the pavilion is just steps away from the park’s awesome playground and ample parking/bathrooms.  So definitely put this on your calendar.  It will be a great way to celebrate. 

See you in church.
