Letter to Faith Church – March 2014

Letter to Faith Church – March 2014

It was disappointing that we had to cancel services this past Sunday. Hopefully, everyone stayed safe and warm. The message that I prepared for Sunday worship is available here, and we plan to have DVD copies available on Sunday.

Since we didn’t gather this past Sunday, I wanted to especially remind you of some important events that are taking place this upcoming Sunday:


Spring Forward

This Saturday evening is the annual day that we move our clocks ahead one hour.

I want to encourage you to plan to set your clock forward Saturday night and get plenty of rest for our Bible Study & Worship on Sunday.


Men’s & Women’s Bible Studies

This Sunday, a 6 week Bible Study will kick-off for men and women. The women’s group will be led by Linda Alvis through the book Lies Women Believe. I will take the Men through Fight, Winning the Battles that Matter Most. We will have both books available for only $5 each, but you do not need to purchase the book to participate in the study. The women will meet in what is usually the Adult Sunday School Class’ room and the Men will meet in the room that is commonly used by the Young Adult Class. I’m excited about these classes, and I pray that they’ll be helpful.


Church Business Meeting

We have received insurance money to make repairs to the basement following the drainage backup incident in early January. The board has recommended that as we work to make repairs, we also make some changes to the layout that will better benefit our current ministries and classes.

Additionally, the board recommends that the church consider replacing the sanctuary pews with chairs similar to those used in our classrooms. This recommendation is based on the belief that the chairs: could provide more seating in the sanctuary, could be moved if services need to be held in the gymnasium during a time of renovation and/or expansion, could be added to for special services such as Easter, & could be moved into a new sanctuary years from now.


Looking forward to worshipping with you this Sunday!

Letter to Faith Church

A couple of Sundays ago I poked my head into Children’s Church & one of the boys asked me, “How come I’m not wanted!?” I was stunned. I couldn’t imagine what would have made him think he wasn’t wanted at our church. I explained that he was very wanted & welcome. “No” he said, ” I want my picture on a wanted poster in the hallway!” That’s when it clicked. He was talking about the posters lining the hallway for Vacation Bible School.
There may not be a wanted poster with your picture on it in our hallway, but you are wanted and welcome! In fact, we are making more room for you and your neighbors, friends, co-workers, and family. We want them all!

Our church has enjoyed steady growth over the last few years. Over the past 6 months we have been thrilled to watch God increase the rate at which people have decided to call Faith Church “my church.”

Of course the increase of people has meant an increase in cars. We had several Sundays that we ran out of parking. I apologize if you struggled to find a parking space or parked in the grass when you worshipped with us recently.

On Sunday, June 24 our membership decided to expand our parking lot. We hope to move forward immediately! The paving company has been contacted, and they have updated the estimate which was originally written in April of 2011. Hopefully, by the end of the week we will have a date set for the work to begin!

God Bless,

Pastor Daniel
