Dear Faith Des Peres Community,

This weekend we’ll worship at the Old Church and I’ll continue my sermon series “Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism”.  The topic is creation and evolution.  I hope you can join us.  Don’t forget Church in the Park on May 31.  If you haven’t yet RSVP’d, please let us know you’re coming so we have a head count for the BBQ.  This will be a fun day! 

On June 7, we’ll hold our annual meeting after church.  This will be an important meeting to attend because the Session will present our new vision and mission statement, our values, goals and a restructure of how we do ministry.  As you know, the Session has spent countless hours with our consultant for the Vision 20/20 process, and the fruits of their labor will be presented on June 7.  I’ve been truly inspired by the work we’ve done, and I’m more convinced than ever that our best days are ahead of us. So please, please, please mark your calendars for June 7.

And last but certainly not least, as we celebrate Memorial Day this Monday, let’s not forget the real reason we celebrate, and give thanks to God for the men and women who have served our country in the arm forces.  Thank you!
