Bulletin and Announcements


Worship

The Order of Worship for Jan 26, 2020

Morning Services at 8:15am and 11:00am

In the morning services, Pastor Nicoletti’s sermon is “Slaves and the Offer of Freedom” from John 8:31-38.

You can download a copy of the bulletin draft here.

Evening Worship at 6:00pm

Our preacher this evening will be the Rev. Nathan Bonham, former teammate in Peru with Pastor Gutiérrez and current missionary to Columbia. Preaching from John 17, he will address what implications there are if the chief end of missions is God’s glory.

The Lord’s Supper will be served. The Lord’s Supper is observed every Lord’s Day at Faith Presbyterian Church alternating between the morning and the evening services. The officers have wanted to retain evening communion not only because all the Lord’s Suppers explicitly mentioned in the New Testament were in the evening, but as well to reinforce the importance of Sunday evening worship as a regular part of the observance of the Lord’s Day.

The services are now available to watch live. Click here to watch live, or go to our video archive for recordings of previous services.

Photo Directory!

With multiple services and ministries, we know faces but often don’t know names. To that end, we are excited to have an all new photo-directory that will be accessible to you on your cell phone, tablet and computer in a password protected and secure way!

We pray this will be a tool that will enable us to get to know one another and our church better.

In order for this to be a successful endeavor, please submit your personal or family photo to Pastor Gutiérrez, or alternatively, get your photo taken this Sunday or next by one of the friendly Senior High volunteer photographers! Once we have received or taken your photo, we will give you access to the directory!

Note on photos:

    1. Photos can be updated easily at any time.
    2. Please submit photos without hats/sunglasses.
    3. Please keep submitted photos as close up as possible
    4. Only include people in your photo who are listed in your contact information.Thank you!
