Let’s Still Dare to Dream
Last year around this time we were starting our Dare to Dream for Today and Dare to Dream for Tomorrow campaigns. Because of our dreams and our successful stewardship and debt reduction campaigns, we have had a vibrant and exciting year at Faith Des Peres. In the coming weeks, we’ll hear more about our joys during the past year and what we expect in the coming year. Sunday, April 19 is the kick off for this year’s stewardship campaign, Still Daring to Dream. Please join us for a special service of lesson and hymns, interspersed with messages from each of FDP’s committees to set the stage for pledge card Sunday on May 10 and celebration Sunday on May 31 with a first ever Church in the Park, 10:30 am at Lions Pavilion at Kirkwood Park followed by BBQ lunch. More details will be forthcoming about these events and about how each of us can share in life at Faith Des Peres and give what we have back to God who is faithful and generous to us.
