Announcements

This Evening

Our preacher this evening is Pastor Matthew Cotta, church planter at Pasadena Orthodox Presbyterian Church, Pasadena, CA. He will be preaching from Revelation 8:6-12: “Full Spectrum Dominance.” 2020 has been a difficult year to say the least. Where has God been during all of this? What has He been doing? How should the church of Jesus Christ understand and respond to the calamities coming upon the whole world? Revelation 8:6-12 answers such questions as these. Come and be reminded of who your God is and what He is presently doing in the world.

Thanksgiving Day Service

Our Thanksgiving Day service is this Thursday, November 26th at 10:00 am and will last for one hour. It is a service of hymns, testimonies, and the Lord’s Supper. Come prepared to offer your own public thanksgivings to the Lord and to rejoice with others in theirs. Sign-up information will go out via email this evening.
It’s been our practice to take an annual Thanksgiving Day offering for our own Presbyterian Church in America Mercy Ministries, through the Mission to North America [MNA] Committee. This offering provides valuable financial support to men and women who are training for ministry leadership among the ethnic groups who are not currently well reached by the Presbyterian Church in America. Through the Thanksgiving Offering supported by PCA churches and individual members, you have the opportunity to invest in future leaders of the denomination – and the opportunity to provide valuable resources for the advancement of the Gospel. Flyers are available at the greeters’ table today and at the Thanksgiving Day service. The flyer contains an envelope to use for your contribution. You may either drop it in our offering box or mail it. If you use our offering box, please make your checks payable to Faith Presbyterian Church. If you mail your gift, you will make your checks payable per the MNA instructions in the flyer.
