Dear Faith Des Peres Family,
This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent and there’s a lot going on in worship! First, we’ll dedicate our Christmas Giving Tree gifts! Don’t forget to bring your unwrapped gift with the ornament to church. You can leave it under the Christmas tree. Next, it’s communion Sunday so we are collecting food for Feeding the Flock. Please don’t bring your food for the reverse Advent calendar this Sunday! We’ll collect it later in the month. And last, the church is decked out in all its Christmas apparel and it looks beautiful! Thank you Andy Richter and family for donating the Christmas tree, and Beth Willock and Danny Mortimer for decorating the church. 

I’ll be in Cape Girardeau with Terry and the kids as First Presbyterian Cape says goodbye to Terry and thanks him for his service as Interim Pastor. I hate not being with all of you since I love Advent so much! But, Rev. Miriam Foltz from UKirk is preaching, and I’ve heard great feedback from you about Miriam and her preaching style. I hope you’ll be here to welcome her and celebrate the season. I’ll be back on December 10 when we’ll celebrate the baptism of Andy Schuller-Meyer. There’s so much to celebrate!

Check out everything that’s happening at FDP during December. There’s something for everyone!

You all are a blessing!

Peace, Annie
