Weekly Update! 8/10

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!
PICNIC AND BAPTISM AUGUST 20TH - Our annual picnic and baptism in the park is coming up soon! Mark your calendars and plan to join us! Everyone is invited down to Dallas City Park directly following the Worship Gathering on August 20th. We will provide a full picnic meal! Donations are welcome. Please bring your family and friends to join in the feast with us! Then, we will have a blast baptizing followers of Jesus in the Rickreall Creek. To read more about baptism, check out THIS POST. If you would like to be baptized, let one of our staff members know by Tuesday, August 15th.
FINANCIAL UPDATE: We are excited to share that the last three months of giving have been right around and even above our monthly budgeted amount. This is very encouraging, and a direct result of your generosity and partnership with the ministry of Faith Church. Thank you, church family! We are on an excellent trajectory to meet our budget this year and we praise God for His provision through your cheerful giving. We will continue to ask God to meet our needs throughout the rest of this year and beyond. 
PASSING OF A CHURCH FAMILY MEMBER - On July 18th, beloved church family member, Lucy Risley, passed into the arms of Jesus. She was a member here for 35 years. Please be in prayer for her family as they grieve her passing, yet rejoice that she is now healed and whole with Christ. There will not be a local service as her family is in Arizona. 
WORSHIP THROUGH GENEROSITY - God provides for the ministry of Faith Church through your cheerful, willing, and generous giving. Thank you! You can submit your offerings in any of three different ways! Through our Church Center App, in the giving boxes on the back wall, or by texting any amount to 84321. All donations are tax deductible.
