I am so very excited about this Fall at Faith Church! God blessed us with a great summer in ministry together and I can not wait to see what is in store for the next couple of months.
There are 4 things I want to make sure everyone knows about:
On Sunday November 4th Faith Church will celebrate her 30th anniversary. It was the first Sunday in November of 1982 when our church transitioned from “mission status” to self-supporting church. I am looking forward to this day as we celebrate God’s faithfulness to us for more than 30 years. I hope you plan to join us!
Our parking lot expansion project has been completed! For the past month, we have had plenty of parking spaces- plenty of room for our neighbors, friends, family, and co-workers to join us for worship.
To move forward with the project this summer, we borrowed $10,000 from our Church savings with the plan of paying this money back in the months to come. We have already made 2 payments of $1,000 back into savings!
Just as work on the parking lot got started, we suffered heavy hail damage to the roofs of the church, gym, parsonage, and shed. We have received funds from our insurance company to make repairs, and we are currently working to hire and schedule work to begin on the church roof. The roof of the church is the most critical since the hail caused immediate leaks. In order to save funds, we are considering tackling the smaller tasks of repairing the parsonage and shed with our church volunteers. If you would be willing to help with this project, please let me or one of our trustees know.
December 1st Foundations Class
The Foundations class covers the basics of what we believe at Faith Church. This class is a great resource for both people who are new to faith in Jesus Christ and people who are new to Faith FWB Church. The class lasts a couple of sessions with breaks and even lunch.
This class is a pre-requisite to becoming a member at Faith Church, but you do not have to be seeking membership to attend.
