Dear Faith Des Peres Church Family,

I am looking forward to our first worship service of the summer at the Old Meeting House!  I have finally gotten to see inside it and appreciate its historic presence and ongoing meaningfulness to our church family.

My sermon message this Sunday will be “Seeing God’s Harvest” from Luke 10:1-11.  This is the story of Jesus sending the disciples out two-by-two to spread the Gospel/Good News about Jesus in nearby communities.  Worship will also include celebrating Holy Communion.

A reminder that Session has called our annual Congregation meeting to follow worship on Sunday, July 14.  Agenda items include receiving the Nominating Committee report and electing Ruling Elders to Session and members to the 2019-2020 Nominating Committee, receiving various Center reports and the 2019-2020 budget approved by Session, and hearing an update on the property sale to Payne Family Homes.

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
