Dear Faith Des Peres Community,
There is a lot happening this Sunday as we get back into the Fall routine.

First, we’re back to the 10:30 worship time!

On Sunday I’m kicking-off a new sermon series titled “Half Truths” where we are examining Christian clichés that don’t make sense once you start to really think about them. This week we’ll look at the saying “God won’t give you more than you can handle”. I hope you’ll join us as we look at popular sayings in light of Scripture to both discover the kernel of truth that is there while also seeing how they do not equate to God’s truth.

This sermon series is a great opportunity to invite someone to worship. Maybe you know someone who is going through a difficult period, asking the perennial question “Why”. Maybe you yourself are asking that question and haven’t been to church in a while. Come on Sunday, and invite someone to join you, to discover the whole truth that brings more comfort than the half truth.

Before church, Terry Epling and Dianne Modrell, who attended the General Assembly meeting in June, will give us a recap of what happened in the Presbyterian Church (USA) at the national level and how it affects us at the local level.

After church, we’ll have the Shared Ministry Faith and ice cream social. This is your chance to discover all the different volunteer opportunities at church and sign-up for something to do this year. From ongoing things to “one and done”, there’s something for every age and ability.

And last but not least, it’s communion Sunday and Feeding the Flock. Bring your food for Circle of Concern Food Pantry.

See you Sunday.
