The Order of Worship and Announcements for our Sunday Morning Services at 8:15 am & 11:00 am on June 24th

You can download this Sunday’s bulletin here..
Evening Service 6 pm
Pastor Nicoletti continues his series on 2 Corinthians. 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.
Deacons Special Offering
The deacons will take a special offering in the evening service on June 24th for the Covenant Children’s Home in Manipur, India. The long-awaited kitchen-dining hall was completed in 2017. Funds received will be used to supply commercial appliances for the new kitchen
Men’s Genesis 39 Class – Having Awkward (but Very Important) Conversations
Sunday, June 24 we will have our last Genesis 39 class before we break for the summer (we will resume in September). We will continue with our new structure, dividing our time between focusing on the sin we are trying to uproot, and the virtue we would like to plant/cultivate in its place. We will begin our time this month with a clip from Stanford professor Philip Zimbardo’s talk titled “Why Boys Are Failing.” After discussing the video, we will spend time discussing how to approach awkward but very important conversations about sexual sin, focusing on fathers talking to their sons, sons talking to their fathers, and each of us talking to peers for accountability and support. We hope you will join us!
The services are now available to watch live. Click here to watch.

Summer Schedule: The Word of Faith Sunday School Class in the Sanctuary
We meet for our Genesis 39 classes today. Beginning next week, we take up Departing in Peace by Covenant College Professor Bill Davis, a study of the ethics of the end of life and the complicated decisions now required of the dying. Led by two of our physicians, Paul Darby and Ryan Gross, we will seek to become more familiar with the realities of end-of-life medical care in 21st Century America and some of the Biblical principles that should inform these inevitable decisions. Pastor Rayburn will complete his class “A Survey of the Old Testament” the last two Sundays of July. We will not meet for Sunday School in the month of August.
“Words of Faith” in Print Again
Words of Faith, our church periodical, is in print again and is actively recruiting contributing authors and column ideas. If you enjoy writing, or if you have an idea of a subject that you would like explored, please contact Katrina Knight. There are a number of features that are already in the works. One opportunity for everyone to participate is a question & answer column called “Ask a Pastor”. There will be a labeled box in the Narthex for you to write any question that you would like to have addressed in our next issue. A few will be selected and printed with illuminating pastoral responses.
