Announcements

Good Friday Service – April 19

Our Good Friday Worship Service will be at 7:00 pm this Friday, April 19th and is a one-hour service of Scripture reading, choral anthems, and hymns.

Men’s Night of Prayer – April 19

Following the Good Friday service, beginning at 9:00 pm, is the Men’s Night of Prayer. It continues until 1:00 am. All men in the congregation are encouraged to attend.

Church Spring Cleaning – April 20

Come “party” with us as we spruce up the church building and grounds Saturday morning! Start your day out right with donuts, fellowship and a little elbow grease. We’ll have some tasks inside and outside: capturing dusts bunnies, sweeping away cob webs, making windows sparkle, tackling some overlooked nooks and crannies, perhaps a little weeding and trimming, picking up litter, etc. We will have some supplies on hand, but feel free to bring a bucket & cloths or a favorite cleaning or gardening tool.

Easter Invitations Available

It has been our custom for many years to organize our morning service on Easter Sunday as an evangelistic service. A testimony is given – this year by Rachael Shelden – and the sermon is evangelistic in its character. All of this means, of course, that we want as many unbelieving people in church on Easter Sunday as possible. The service will be especially for them! Invitations to the service are available in the narthex for your use. We encourage you to think of whom the Lord would have you invite and to pray that he would make your friends and neighbors willing to come. Perhaps an invitation for dinner afterwards will help them say “yes”. A reception with refreshments will be held in DeSoto Hall after the 8:15 and 11:00 am worship services.

Baby Shower for Annie & Edan Ngoy

Edouard and Annie Ngoy welcomed baby girl Edan to their family on March 28. While we won’t gather physically for a shower, we’d like to celebrate the birth of Edan with a shower of cards and monetary gifts. You may place cards, gift cards or cash for the growing Ngoy family in the shower box in the narthex next Lord’s Day, Easter Sunday.

C3 Training Session–April 27

C3 Ministries equips and empowers us—the congregation of Faith Pres.—to be the instruments of God’s care and comfort for our brethren and our community.  This training is grounded first in the techniques and practice of Relationship Building, because these skills underpin all the care and comfort work we do in all of ministry and evangelism relationships. Please join us, Saturday, April 27, 9-11 AM, in DeSoto Hall.

Rayburn Celebration – May 10

With hearts full of gratitude to our God, we are gathering as a church family to celebrate, with high honor and somewhat lower humor, the extraordinarily faithful forty-one -year ministry of our beloved pastor, now Emeritus, the Rev. Dr. Robert S. Rayburn, and his lovely wife, Florence. The evening will begin at 5:40 pm with prelude selections, followed by reflections, highlighting speakers from far and near, an Intermission for refreshments and nostalgic slide show, and then the Revels and gift-giving.
ALL PARENTS OF YOUNG CHILDREN please sign up in the Narthex for your children aged 4-10 to take part in special food and entertainment planned just for them, and well supervised. Please also sign up your nursery-aged children. We anticipate a large crowd and are making provision for our younger children in order to free up more seats! A recording of the evening will be made available after the event. More details to follow. Thank you!

Men of Faith Spring Breakfast – May 11 – Sign up Sunday!

The Men of Faith Annual Spring Breakfast will be May 11th at 8:30 am. We are delighted to announce our guest speaker will be The Rev. Ian Hamilton, retired pastor of Cambridge Presbyterian Church. His theme is “A Reflection on the ministry of the Holy Spirit: Mortifying sin, Witnessing to our spirit; Helping us in prayer.” The cost is $8 to attend. A sign-up will be set up in the Narthex.

Christian Education Fund

The officers of Faith Presbyterian recognize both the importance of Christian education and the challenge that paying for that education can be to families. Accordingly, our church maintains a Christian Education fund to assist families in this endeavor. If your family, or a family you know of in the church, could use this assistance please contact the church office in order to connect them with our Christian Education

Nursing Mothers

In addition to the nursery rooms, Room #117 – the Women’s Fellowship Room, is open and available for your convenience during all Worship Services. The service can be seen and heard in the WIC room.

Hearing Assistance

If you would like a device to help with hearing the worship service, please see a Deacon.

A Reminder About Parking

As a courtesy to our neighbors, please do not park on the south side of South 8th Street, on South Winnifred Street behind the church, or where the curb is painted yellow.

Also, please save the spots next to the building marked “reserved” for our elderly and those with mobility limitations.
