Weekly Update! 7/13

JOIN US THIS SUNDAY AT 10:15AM - "If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit (Galatians 5:25)." How can we grow in learning to walk by the Spirit, putting to death the desires of our flesh, and increasingly exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit? Our new teaching series will help us learn how we can put ourselves in "Hallways" where the Holy Spirit is active, inviting Him to do His transformative work in our hearts and lives!

"HALLWAYS" - In case you missed the introduction to our new series last week, you can check it out HERE, or on our website under "Watch." This introduction will help set a foundation for upcoming teachings throughout the summer. 

CONSTRUCTION KNOWLEDGE? – We are looking for a team to lay the new flooring in our toddler and preschool rooms. We have purchased all the supplies and would love to get this step completed. If you have experience and are willing to lead or serve on a team to get this step completed, please let Debbie Davies know. Email at debbie@faithchurchdallas.org or text at 503.932.2294.

DISTRICT LEADER NOMINEE - Faith Church greatly enjoys, appreciates, and benefits from our partnership with the Pacific Northwest District of the EFCA (Evangelical Free Church of America). Our district includes 40 churches in Oregon and Washington. Following our former District Leader's recent retirement, the District Board completed a thorough search process and they have put forward a nominee to serve as the next District Leader. We invite you to get to know a bit about Rob Chadwick and his wife, Beth, by watching THIS VIDEO.

UPCOMING SALE OF THE NORTH ACREAGE - Back in March, Faith Church members approved that we begin the process of selling the north part (approx. 20 acres) of the church property that includes the manufactured home known as the Hospitality House. After the worship gathering this Sunday on July 16th, the North Acreage team will host an informal, informational meeting for those interested in learning more about the upcoming sale of that property. Then, after the worship gathering on July 23rd, there will be a brief congregational meeting during which official members will be asked to give final approval of the plan to sell the property. Anyone within the church family that has an interest in purchasing the property is invited to reach out to the North Acreage team by contacting Gary Suderman at 503-623-4757.
