Dear Faith Des Peres Church Family,

If you’ve been in the main church parking lot this week you might have noticed that the Community Garden has been removed. This is the first phase of our new parking lot and Community Garden project this September and October. Plans are to begin the phased parking lot removal, grading and paving the first week of September. The entire project with the possible exception of some new landscape plantings in the front of the church is to be finished by Halloween. Thank you for your patience as we become a construction zone for these next two months!

Congratulations to Hannah Lewis and Eric Napady and their families as they get married this Saturday, August 24!

My sermon message this Sunday will be “Being Set Free” from Luke 13:10-17. This is the story of Jesus healing the woman bent over for 18 years.

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
