You can download the bulletin draft here.
Evening Worship at 6:00pm
Tim Bentson, Mission to the World missionary to Japan and son of our congregation, will give a report on his work and ministry in Osaka.
Pastor Nicoletti will continue his sermon series in 1 Samuel.
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.
Sunday school for all ages is weekly at 9:45am. The full list of classes is available on our Sunday School page.
