Hope this weekly email continues to find you all healthy and safe!
During this time of "shelter-in-place" take a moment and contact a church member or friend to see how they are holding up.
Give them a call, send them a note, stop by their house on a beautiful day
and visit with them outside - 6' apart of course.
I guarantee you'll enjoy it as much as they will:)

Hello Friends,

As we continue to stay safe at this time I will share the latest updates on church life:

  • Our church building remains closed until future notice. This decision will be re-evaluated once we are clearly in the “green zone” and we have implemented a plan to keep everyone safe and healthy. 
  • Our Sunday services are available on Facebook and our website each Sunday at 10:15 am. Remember these services can be watched at the time of the service and again afterwards for those who missed it. (Past services are available on our YouTube page.)

Join us this Sunday for our Service of Worship and Celebration of our Graduates! Click on the service to print out a bulletin to follow along:

This Sunday, June 14, 2020, churches throughout the Penn Northeast Conference will be holding A Vigil for Peace and Justice.  Each congregation, utilizing good social distancing and protection guidelines, will be gathering outside their church buildings or in public spaces to hold lighted candles, offer prayers for peace, and stand in solidarity with our siblings of color who have been subjected to systems of white supremacy and racism for far too long.  Faith Church will hold its Vigil at 7:30 Sunday evening. Please be sure to wear a mask and bring a candle to light. Service will be short and include prayers and readings.  If you feel safe and comfortable I hope to see you, however, do not take unnecessary risks.

Thank you to all of you who took the time to vote for our upcoming Elders, Deacons, and Consistory Officers . The slate was unanimously approved .

Is there someone in your life in need of prayer?  Click  here  to fill out a prayer request form and Pastor Bruce will mention that person’s first name during worship. Please be sensitive to privacy. Permission to share from those involved must be granted before making a request.

Please continue to keep former members, Jim and Joyce White in your thoughts and prayers. Joyce is recovering at home from heart surgery on June 1st.
If you would like to send a card or note...

Please be safe and remain healthy.

Blessings,

WORDS FOR OUR GRADUATES - from Oprah Winfrey during a virtual Graduation Ceremony for the Class of 2020, May 15th ,2020

I know you may not feel like it, but you are indeed the chosen class for such a time as this. Of course, this is not the graduation ceremony you envisioned. You’ve been dreaming about that walk across the stage, your family and friends cheering you on, the caps flung joyously in the air.

But even though there may not be pomp because of our circumstances, never has a graduating class been called to step into the future with more purpose, vision, passion and energy and hope.

I urge you to stand for, to fight for and vote for healthier conditions that will create a healthier society, in order to create more equity or justice and more joy in the world.
Thank you to everyone who has generously supported our Joyful Noise Fund. You have made it possible for us to fulfill our committments to Beyond Borders, Global Ministries, and Bethany Children's Home through the end of the year! ~ The Mission Team
