Dear Faith Des Peres Church Family,

My sermon message this Father’s Day Sunday will be “Saying Yes to God” from Isaiah 6:1-8.  This is the story of Isaiah’s vision of being in God’s heavenly throne room and receiving his call to serve as the Almighty One’s prophet. 

I hope you are getting excited about our church serving as a host site for this year’s Make Music St. Louis next Friday, June 21.  This is a come and go event for both musicians and attendees from 1:00 to 9:00 p.m.  We hope to have more information about performers and times on the church website soon.

Sunday, June 23 is the deadline to bring items for our new Military Deployment Drive that we kicked off Memorial weekend Sunday.  Please leave items in the box in the Gathering Space.  June 23 we will also welcome Rev. Rick Miller back while I am on vacation.

Looking ahead to Sunday, June 30 my sermon message will be “Caring for All Our Family” from Luke 9:51-62.  Pending Session approval June 20 we also expect to celebrate two baptisms during worship on June 30.

And looking way further ahead, our annual Congregation meeting will follow worship Sunday, July 14.  Please have your annual reports in to the church office by Monday, June 24.

I look forward to seeing you in and around our church as we share in mission and ministry together!

 Shalom in Christ Jesus,

 Pastor Marilyn
