Dear Faith Family and Friends,

I had my follow up visits with my doctor and the surgeon this week and they both assured me that things are progressing as they should be. They also told me this will take time so I need to stop trying to rush it! Ha - that's hard for me to do but I'm trying:) I'll be on medicine for 2 1/2 months to reduce the inflammation found in my colon. Then we will work on finding a medication to maintain things.

Thanks again for your continued support, cards, and messages. The smiles you are bringing to my face are helping me heal more than you can imagine.

OCTOBER'S SPECIAL OFFERING

Neighbors in Need (NIN) is a special mission offering of the United Church of Christ that supports ministries of justice and compassion throughout the United States. Neighbors in Need grants are awarded to UCC churches and organizations doing justice work in their communities. These grants fund projects whose work ranges from direct service to community organizing and advocacy to address systemic injustice. This year, special consideration will be given to projects focusing on serving our immigrant neighbors and communities. To learn more about Neighbors in Need go to https://www.ucc.org/nin.
 
Neighbors in Need offering will be taken during October. Please designate your contribution as NIN. Tithe.ly users will find this designation online.
On Sunday, October 18 (Laity Sunday) the Mission Team will be leading the worship service. The service will be a celebration of the many missions we support along with sharing our Angel Mission Projects. Please plan to join us!

And following worship you are invited to join your Faith friends on Zoom at noon. Grab your favorite dessert and a cup of your favorite hot beverage and get caught up with everyone you've been missing for months!! The link for zoom will be included in this email the week before the 18th.

UPDATE - PLEASE READ
November was to be our month to assist the families at BLP but that will not happen this year. However, we are still responsible for donating 100 bottles of laundry detergent for the month.

To make this easy we will be having a drive-thru
collection drop off on:
Saturday, October 24
At Faith Church
From 11:00 AM until 1 PM
If you also wish to donate food items we could really use boxed potatoes, canned ravioli, and hamburger/tuna/chicken helpers and any condensed soup EXCEPT tomato soup.
AND…All donors will receive a
Halloween Treat from Faith’s Mission Team!!

All are invited to bring food donations to the pantry on Wednesday mornings between 9 and 10 am. Please remain in your car, drive up around the perimeter of the parking lot and stop at the tents outside the pantry. Volunteers will take bags from your trunk or back seat to minimize contact. You may also drop your donations at the Southern Lehigh Library or Coopersburg and Center Valley Post Offices.
Thank you for your continued support!
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:

  1. Mail your offering directly to the church
  2. Make an electronic donation through Tithe.ly on our website's Giving page
  3. Use your bank's Bill Pay service
