Dear Faith Des Peres Church Family,

I’m looking forward to attending some of the performances in our church this Friday, June 21 for the free celebration of music around the world as we host Make Music Day St. Louis.  This is a come and go event for both musicians and attendees from 1:00 to 9:00 p.m.  See our church website for the schedule of performances.

This Sunday, June 23 we will welcome Rev. Rick Miller back while I am on vacation June 22-28.

Sunday, June 23 is also 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. 

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
