THIS SUNDAY AT 10:15AM - We're glad you're with us as we continue our series in God’s Word, “James: A Transforming Faith”. This letter was written by James, the brother of Jesus, to encourage and challenge the believer toward a transforming faith. This Sunday, we will be in James chapter 4.
SUNDAY AUGUST 7TH TIME CHANGE - WORSHIP GATHERING @ 9:00 AM! - The "ONE" Worship Gathering has been rescheduled! Please plan to join us here at Faith Church on Sunday, August 7th, as we gather for worship at 9:00am. Then, we encourage you to consider attending "ONE", a community-wide worship gathering being held at the Dallas High School football field. This is an opportunity to unite in worshiping Jesus alongside believers from other Dallas area churches. There will be coffee/fellowship time at 10:30am and the Worship Gathering begins at 11:00am.
PICNIC AND BAPTISM AUGUST 21ST - Our annual picnic and baptism in the park is coming up soon! Everyone is invited to join us at the Dallas City Park directly following the Worship Gathering on August 21st. We are going to provide a picnic and a fun dessert! Then, we have a blast baptizing followers of Jesus in the Rickreall Creek. If you would like to be baptized and feel the Spirit’s prompting, we would love to have a conversation with you! Meet with a staff member or pastor anytime, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also have a "Baptism info Meeting" on August 14th in the back of the worship center for any who are interested.
MISSION UPDATE: Gail Posenjack will be in the US this summer and joining us here on August 14th! There will be an opportunity to connect with her from 9 AM-9:45 AM in the Community Center. Gail is one of our missionaries and serves in Papua New Guinea with Ethnos 360. You are invited to come and receive a brief overview of the work God is doing through her overseas and ask questions. This will be a wonderful opportunity to connect with her so that we can better carry her in our thoughts and prayers.
PASTOR ED IS RETIRING! - Mark your calendars and join us to celebrate Ed, and his lovely wife Connie's, 38(!) years of love and service to Faith Church on September 25th in the Community Center directly following the worship gathering. We are so excited for Ed and Connie as they adventure into a new chapter of their lives!
PASTOR DEREK IS ON SABBATICAL - As Pastor Derek is away on sabbatical this summer, please continue praying for him as he engages in God's Word and enjoys an extended time of rest. This is a grace-gift for Derek and his family from our whole church family, as we believe in caring well for those who lead and serve us. We are excited for God’s ongoing work in and through the Faith Church family! In case you missed Derek's pre-sabbatical comments on Sunday, May 15th, check out THIS LINK to hear what he had to say.
PRAYER WALL - At Faith Church, one of our core values is prayer! We can have confidence that when we pray, God hears us.
