Evening Service: All are welcome to our special evening of prayer, reflection, thanksgiving, fellowship, and food! No reservations required and no cost to you. We begin at 5:00 pm (NOT our usual 6:00 pm). We will start with a special service of prayer and reflection, praising God for his sovereign care over us in these past 16 months, confessing the way we have each fallen short of his calling for us in the face of the unique challenges, lamenting the losses that we and others have faced, praying for parts of the world where the pandemic is still taking a heavy toll, and then, most of all, giving thanks to God for his faithfulness in bringing us through this difficult time together.

Then we will move over to DeSoto Hall where we will have a catered fellowship and thanksgiving feast waiting for us! The mouth-watering meal, the delectable desserts, and the fantastic fellowship will make this special evening one we will remember. We hope that many in our congregation will be able to join us as we mark this important moment in our life together. We look forward to spending the evening with you!

If you are looking for spiritual “sharpening” in a weekly gathering, please contact Thom Wilson by text or email for more information.

Funeral for Bob Downie

The funeral service for Bob Downie will be this Friday, June 18th at noon, here at the church. A graveside service will be held at Haven of Rest immediately afterward, followed by a reception at the Canterwood Country Club in Gig Harbor. All are welcome to attend. More details will be provided by email this week.

Log on to vbspro.events/p/faithtacoma to check out what’s available and register your student to run the Race of Faith this summer at Vacation Bible School! When: July 5-9, 9am-12pm Where: Faith Presbyterian Church Who: 4-year-olds through 6th grade (completed)

VBS Donation Opportunity

Dear Faith Family, we are excited to once again be preparing for VBS coming up next month! The kitchen crew will be cooking up fun, filling foods for our young Olympian Athletes, as well as for all of the coaches and assistant coaches, and we would appreciate so much if you are able to be involved by donating some particular food items. Individually wrapped dry goods can go in the marked tote in the Narthex (Snack/Granola bars, candy bars, chip bags, small jerky packages, candies, juice boxes/bags… please just remember that they need to be individually wrapped!) And refrigerated items can go in the small, marked tote in the church kitchen refrigerator (snacks like cheese sticks and small yogurts… these items also need to be individually wrapped.) Please check for expiration dates that are later than July 9th. For crafts, we need a lot of card stock (mostly white but also red and blue), sports themed stickers, empty toilet paper rolls, and butcher paper! A marked box will be available in the Narthex for these supplies, as well. Thanks so much for any and all!

College & Career Community Group

College & Career is a young adult ministry of Faith Presbyterian Church. The goal is to provide opportunities for young adults 18 and older, whether single or married, to “do life” together throughout the week and form deep Christian friendships. The C&C Community Group is a weekly small group that meets in a home for dinner and fellowship. Currently they meet on Thursdays at Nate and Rachel Shelden’s home at 6:30. For more details, or if you’re interested in joining a C&C Community Group, please contact Nate or Rachel, and they will help you get connected!
