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.)
  • A special email was sent out yesterday - When & How Faith Church Will Re-Open? If you haven't already read it, please do.

Join us this Sunday for our Service of Worship.

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 be safe and remain healthy.

Blessings,
Pastor Bruce
Since the murder of George Floyd and the reaction to it I have been reminded of the words of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr; A riot is the language of the unheard.  If this is true, and I think it is, then I want to start listening and I invite you to listen with me.  
To that end, I want to invite you to start an ongoing Sacred Conversation on Race and to willingly enter into the particular aspect of the conversation that focuses attention on White Privilege in its manifestations and impact.
I do not promise that this will be easy to discuss nor do I claim to be an expert but we have to start somewhere. If we do this right it will challenge basic assumptions about race that help white communities maintain a system of privilege that, while prevalent, often goes unnoticed by even the best-intentioned of white advocates for justice. Nonetheless, the work of sacred listening and conversation has the potential to deepen our awareness of how privilege is made manifest, and the commensurate work of unmasking and dismantling that privilege, is among the most important work we white leaders can commit to.
If you are like me, the first time I heard the term White Privilege I became angry and defensive. As of late, I have been able to listen to and understand my brothers and sisters whose skin is a different color than mine. I have much more to learn. Would you join me?
Sadly, we will have to start this conversation and our listening via Zoom as our building remains closed - but I don’t want to wait. At first I thought we would keep this to a 6 week program but I do not want to limit our sacred conversation. This conversation is likely to take on different forms but I doubt it will ever be complete. Join me Monday nights from 7:00 to 8:30 beginning July 13 th . Please don’t feel that you have to commit to each and every session. Participate as you can.
Are you in? Please be open to this challenge. Promise to come to these conversations with open hearts and open minds. Commit to new insights that will lead to new alignments. Let me know so I can be sure to send you a Zoom invite.

Last Sunday, June 14, 2020, churches throughout the Penn Northeast Conference held A Vigil for Peace and Justice and Faith Church took part.

Thank you to everyone who continue to generously support our Missions.

Currently, support is needed for Betty Lou's Pantry. The pantry's food resources have been stretched to cover the extra demand during the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently the items most needed are:

Condensed Soup
Hearty Soups
Canned Pasta
Tuna Helper
Canned Tomato Products
Toilet Paper

Monetary donations are also appreciated and can be given through Faith UCC. (Tithely users will find Betty Lou's Pantry on the designated list.)

The Lawn Crew still has some open dates on the schedule. If you can help or have questions please contact Tim Hovis at 484-223-9476.
