Living Creation - Sundays 9:30-10ish
Join us for an intergenerational, experiential Bible study on the creation story. We’ll begin with a short reading and lesson, and then we’ll step into each creation day in a unique way. On June 7, we’ll reflect on God the creator awakening. Susan Marting, tai chi instructor, will lead us in simple tai chi exercises. No experience necessary! Come in clothes that are easy to move in; tai chi involves gentle movement. This is for all ages! We look forward to seeing you, and we hope you’ll support this new faith formation offering at Faith Des Peres.
Update: "LET'S PLAY BALL!" (or at least eat and watch a baseball game)
FDP is going to the River City Rascals baseball game at the TR Hughes Stadium in O'Fallon, MO on Friday evening June 12th. Box Seats are only $10.00 (not $25.00) but you will be responsible for the purchase of your own food. The game starts at 6:30 pm. Guaranteed fun and FDP fellowship for the whole family! Please sign up in the Gathering Space or call Yolanda in the church office.
Flat Jesus is back! Get a template for him on the blog or in the Gathering Space. Email your Flat Jesus pictures to Yolanda at firstname.lastname@example.org. Flat Jesus is a fun project that helps us share our faith and reminds us that Jesus goes with us wherever we go. It’s also a way to keep us connected over the summer while people are travelling hither and yon. You’re invited, and encouraged, to take a cut-out of Jesus, decorate him, take him with you this summer, snap pictures of your Flat Jesus, and email them to us.
Summer Sermon Series: “Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism”
In this series we’ll cover some of the hot-button issues of the day with a look at what the Bible does and does not say about them. This series allows us to take the Bible seriously but not literally, and assumes God and the Bible can handle our intellectual pursuits. Don’t check your brain at the door.
