Faith’s 32nd Anniversary
On Sunday, May 19th, we will celebrate the 32nd Anniversary of Faith Presbyterian Church. There will be a punch and cake reception in the main entry after the worship services that morning. That Sunday we will receive a special offering. That offering can be given toward one of three needs: Mortgage debt reduction, the Mission fund, or to the general budget. Any extra gift goes a long way to help the church and it’s ministries. The congregation has received the special offering every third Sunday in May when we celebrate the anniversary of our founding. It has made a great difference over the last seven years. Let us be very generous in this special offering. Remember the blessings God has given to our congregation, and let us demonstrate our thanksgiving with a special gift.
Our Faith KIDS and Youth Ministry are having a pool party on Sunday, May 26 at from 2-4:30p. Contact our Director of Youth and Student Ministries, Jon Fuschi for more details!
Memorial Day weekend is May 25th-27th. The keeping of memorials and remembrances of things past is an ancient Biblical tradition and a tradition of our country. We will once again put out our flags at the beginning of Memorial Day weekend and these flags will remain out until after the fourth of July.
Memorial Day carries significance for those who served and gave their lives for our nation. Many communities also use this weekend for decorating the graves of family members and hold family reunions. Many churches used to have homecomings on this weekend to remember the church and the family of faith from which they come. When people forget from whence they came and the sacrifices made by those who came before us in our families, in our nation, and for the sake of the Lord Jesus Christ, our lives lose focus. We must remember how we got here and how our nation came to be, and how our faith is built on those who labored before us.
The noble and good aspects of life endure because the present generations remember and by memorial honor those who have made these things possible. Memorial Day weekend is not just the unofficial beginning of summer, it is the recognition of what we have has not come without cost. If we forget this, we do so to our own peril and worse, to our children’s and grandchildren’s. Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful. 1 Corinthians 4:2
We celebrate Memorial Day because we have been given a trust. Let us keep that trust bought in our faith by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in our nation by the blood of those who have come before us.
Family Night Cookout
Sunday, June 2nd at 5:30p, we will have a family cookout. Everyone is invited to join us for the cookout, waterslides, and kickball!
