Dear Faith Des Peres Community,

Please wear your blue Faith Des Peres shirts on Sunday!!

Over 60 of us had fun at our first-ever Church in the Park service last Sunday despite the cold weather!  I heard many favorable comments so plan on this becoming an annual tradition!  I want to thank Terry Baker and Leslie Barnes for hosting, and Phil Payne, John Willock and Andy Richter for serving as grill masters.  Yum!

This Sunday we’ll have our annual meeting after church.  I hope you’ll be here for the unveiling of our new vision and mission statements, the values that guide us, and goals for the next 3-5 years.  The Session is also asking you to adopt a change in the number of elders who serve on the Session.  Plan on the meeting lasting 20-30 minutes (depending on how many questions are asked).  While we’d like you to stay for all of it, stay for as much as you can.

Also, Feeding the Flock is Sunday.  Bring your food!

And last but not least, Living Creation Bible Study kicks off Sunday with a short overview of the creation story and then tai chi with Susan Marting.  Come dressed comfortably!  This is for all ages and abilities and is a great way to begin your day.  No experience necessary! 

Wow, that’s a lot happening in a short amount of time.  Don’t forget to wear your shirt!

See you Sunday.


PS: On June 14 for Living Creation, we’ll host a bee-keeper and there will be bubble mania for the youngsters.  Fresh honey for all!
