Dear Faith Des Peres Family,

    Can you believe it's Labor Day weekend already? I can't! Where has the summer gone? Because it's Labor Day weekend, worship is at the Old Des Peres Church on Geyer Road. I'll be out of town visiting colleges with Tommy, so Rev. Carol DeVaughan is preaching in my absence. If you haven't been to the old church in a while you're in for a surprise, because the columbarium expansion is in full swing. The new sidewalk and "patio" is complete and the masonry around the new columbarium is almost done. It's a huge improvement! When the hardscape is done, the new landscape will be planted. I hope you like how it looks as much as I do.

    If you're in town, I hope you'll be in worship. If you're out of town, I hope you have a peaceful last weekend of summer. I look forward to seeing everyone when I'm back on the 10th.
