Important Dates for the Year

We have a lot of fun things in store this coming year! Here's a list of our important dates; we'll pass out physical copies at the start of the year. Click the link to get a peak at what's ahead: Save the Date!

October 1 - Adult Forum - Last Summer's Mission Trips Forum

Every summer our Confirmation (middle school) and FLY (high school) students go on two mission trips in different places. Join us during the education hour to hear about our students' experience this past summer in Arecibo, Puerto Rico and Indianapolis! It's also a great way to learn more about opportunities your students will have when they are in middle and high school!

October 29 - Trunk or Treat!

On Sunday, October 29 from 4 to 5pm on the front lawn (or in Luther Hall if it rains), Faith will be hosting it's annual Trunk or Treat event!

People are invited to bring their cars, open up their trunks and give out candy or host a game. Trunks can be decorated or simply be used to hold a bucket of candy!! There's no need to go over the top, but if you are passionate about Halloween all decorations are welcome. :)

Kids of all ages are then invited to come in their costumes to go "trunk or treating", collecting candy from cars, playing games in trunks, and participating in other stations. There will be games, snacks, face painting, bobbing for donuts and so much more! Families are invited to come together to participate.

This event is open to everyone, including the community! Bring a friend! All are welcome - whether you come decked out ready for Halloween, or on a whim not as prepared as you'd like, join us for a time of fellowship, excitement, candy and fun! Come as you are.

ISO: Clean, Glass Jars (especially pasta sauce jars)

WE LOVE MAKING CRAFTS! We are looking for clean, glass jars for projects. If you have any, please bring in your jars clean and without a label to the office or to Sunday School.

Baby Items Needed for one of our Faith Families!

Liberatte & Tiel Bayizele welcomed a beautiful little girl into the world this week. Mama and baby are doing okay, but the birth unexpectedly came a month early so they weren't yet ready with all the baby gear needed. If you have any gently-used items to pass along, it would be a great help. Especially needed are: high chair, baby monitor, baby blankets or clothes, any newborn extras like diapers, onesies, wipes, etc. Items can be dropped off at the church office!
