Dear Faith Des Peres Family,

This Sunday in worship the theme is Thanksgiving! I have so much to be thankful for serving as your pastor; you are all wonderful people and do so much for Faith Des Peres. Thank you for all you do, and for supporting me, being patient with me, and encouraging me and working alongside me in ministry. I’m truly blessed to call Faith Des Peres my church home.


Don’t forget that after church we’ll have the Thanksgiving meal and kick-off the Christmas giving tree. It will be fun!


On a personal note, I want to let you know that Terry concludes his service at First Presbyterian Cape Girardeau on December 10. They’ve called a new pastor who starts December 11. Beginning January 1, he’ll serve as the Interim Head of Staff/Pastor at Dardenne Presbyterian Church in St. Charles. Everyone in the Epling house is happy to have him closer to home! And he’s happy to have a couple weeks off during the holidays.


One more personal note – Tommy’s Eagle Scout Ceremony is Saturday, November 25 at 2:00 at the church. We’d love it if you would come!


I hope to see you Sunday!
