Women’s Ministry of Faith
Tuesday Bible Study
On Tuesday mornings from 9:30-12:00 the women’s Bible Study meets in Room 105 to study Nancy Guthrie’s book The Promised One: Seeing Jesus in Genesis.
“After the resurrection, when Jesus used Scripture to explain who he was and why he came, where did he start? In the Old Testament. And this is where The Promised One begins to look for Christ, finding him in the people, promises, and patterns of the Old Testament Scriptures.”
If you’re not sure you can attend in person, or if you are out of town and would like to participate, we have a number of women who zoom with us. Contact Dawn Darby for more information.
Mothers’ Encouragement Group (MEG)
MEG meets two Wednesday mornings each month from 9:30 am – 12pm in Room 105. The schedule for the rest of 2022 is January 19; February 2 & 16; March 2, 16 & 30; April 13 & 27; May 11 & 25. Childcare for infants and preschoolers is provided so you have opportunity to connect with other moms, have a hot cup of coffee, and lift one another up in prayer.
Choristers is open to children ages 4-12. We meet every Wednesday evening from 7:00 - 8:00, in the choir room. Please see Melissa McMillan for more details.
Men’s Prayer & Bible Reading
We meet Thursdays at 6:30am in the Conference Room. We are currently reading in the book of Acts. Please join us as we read and pray for each other and the world.
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 are on a temporary hiatus.
The January 10 Letter to the Congregation from Pastor Nicoletti can be found here.
The WMF team hopes to see a greeter ministry take off in the new year!
Here is our vision for the greeter ministry:
-Warm and informed volunteers willing to rotate serving at a designated welcome area during both morning services. We'll use sign-up genius so individuals can choose the time slots that would work for them! If we have enough volunteers, you would likely only need to serve 2-3 times a month!
-A designated visitor area, with clear signage, that contains information regarding life at Faith PCA.
-Printed information that is easily accessible for newcomers to get plugged into the various ministries at our church.
-Families that are willing to host newcomers for lunch after the Sunday services.
We need individuals to join us in our mission to make sure that no one comes through our doors and feels unseen. Coming to our church as a visitor should be a warm, welcoming, and seamless experience.
If any of this interests you, please text or email Sarah Gauthier.

Women’s Ministry of Faith Meeting Webinar
Ladies, since so many of us and our families are sick and recovering these days, we thought it would enable more of you to participate in our next meeting if we held it by webinar. By now you are all familiar with how these work, and we look forward to you joining us.
Thursday, January 20, 2022
7:00pm - 8:30pm
Topic—Panel: Racial Reconciliation
We will hear from a panel of minority women or women with particular experience in this issue who will share with us what it is like as a minority to live in a majority culture. What are their struggles? What are the stories they hesitate to share with their white friends? Are there ways the culture of our congregation needs to change to become a place where all minorities feel welcomed and at home?
Please join us as we learn from one another how to be more Christlike towards others in our community and our church. This is a Webinar, so you won’t be able to actively participate, but you will be able to ask questions. Contact Dawn Darby to get a webinar invitation.
The Annual Congregational Meeting and Dinner will be held Wednesday, January 26th with dinner beginning at 6:00 pm in DeSoto Hall followed by the meeting at 7:00 pm in the sanctuary.
Craig DesJardins’ 2022 Bible reading plan is available in the narthex and also on our “Resources” page.
Also available in the narthex are a chronological reading plan and the M’Cheyne Daily Bible Reading Plan which takes readers through the New Testament and Psalms twice a year, and through the rest of the Bible once each year.
Pastor Gutierrez also leads a group of men in reading through the Bible in a year, using an app that allows for questions, comments, accountability, and encouragement. If you would like to join this group, please contact Pastor Gutierrez!
