Please keep the Schoenberger family in your thoughts and prayers. Pastor Bruce shared during the service on Sunday that Donna and Bob's house was totally destroyed by an early morning fire on Friday, Nov. 6.
Their immediate needs have been taken care of for the moment. Until we know better how we can help the family, we are accepting monetary donations designated as Helping Hands. Pastor Bruce will stay in contact with Donna and share updates as they are received.
Be on the look out THIS Saturday morning for our local scouts picking up SCOUTING FOR FOOD bags. Please have you filled bags out by 8 am.

How can you help put the "Merry" in Christmas for our pantry families? We are excepting monetary donations for gift cards to be distributed to each family so they can purchase gifts for their children. Please send your contribution designated Christmas Gift Cards to:
Betty Lou's Pantry
PO Box 85
Coopersburg, PA 18036
(Your contributions need to be received before Thanksgiving.)
We at Faith are collecting new/unused Christmas gift wrap, gift bags, tape, gift tags, ribbon, and bows for the families. You can drop your donations off in the office foyer at Faith Church Mondays - Fridays from 9-5. All donations need to be received before Thanksgiving.

Please continue to bring food donations to the pantry on Wednesday mornings between 9 and 10 am.
Please come to the pantry entrance and call down over the railing that you have a donation and would like some assistance. You may also drop your donations at the Southern Lehigh Library or Coopersburg and Center Valley Post Offices. Thank you for your continued support!
Family of Faith,
As we prepare for Christmas we have 15 Forget-Me-Nots in our church family at this time. Because of COVID we can’t collect items to share with them as we usually do. So with your help we would like to try something a little different this year. I asked a friend or relative of each FMN to offer a suggestion that was a favorite of each FMN. Below, you will find a wish list prepared in hopes that you will adopt one of the numbers and buy the treat or gift for one of our Forget Me Nots. If you are willing to take a number please call Caroline Frantz at 610-691-8714 so I can be sure that each Forget Me Not is covered. Then please drop off your gift (wrapped or in a Christmas gift bag) to the church conference room by December 12th. Thank you for your support!

Dear Friends,

In an effort to work towards safely reopening our sanctuary, we have had REME HALO cells installed into our HVAC systems. These cells will:
 
  • Kill up to 99% of bacteria, mold and viruses
  • Reduce sneeze germs by 99% in the time a sneeze can reach three feet
  • Kill 99% of viruses on surfaces

COVID-19 has changed our lives and I know that you are eager to return to worshiping in our sanctuary again but we must do it safely. These cells are an important element in making sure that our building is safe. If you are willing to make a donation towards this project please make a check payable to the church and designate it CLEAN AIR!  
 
Thank you for the many generous ways you support your church, its mission and ministry. 
 
Peace,
Pastor Bruce   
A Special THANK YOU to all who continue to financially support our ministry as you are able. Through these uncertain times our financial obligations continue and our regular bills are still coming in. Again we'd like to remind you there are several ways you can do this:
