Just a reminder… Sunday School Rally Day event is scheduled for Sunday, September 9 at 9 a.m.! We will begin our gathering in the Fellowship Hall to socialize for a while that morning! If you know of a new student, please let Kathy know. We hope to see everyone again!!!
One of our senior members has gone to her heavenly reward. Pearl Emerling passed away at her Fox Run home early Monday morning, June 25. She was a lovely lady, full of smiles, and always willing to greet others! A strong will to live her life to the fullest, and she did. She will be missed by so many loving family members and friends! Our sympathy and prayers continue for all! There will be a Memorial Service on Saturday, September 8 at 11 a.m. here at Faith Church.

Invitation & Welcoming Team Update
What a busy year it has been for the Invitation & Welcoming Team! Our group has hosted Game Night, Coffee & Craft, and the Mardi Gras Coffee Hour. We have scheduled greeters for every service. Our Team also handed out little service souvenirs for Valentine's Day and Easter! I would like to thank my Committee members (Jen McEwan, Lois Thurnherr, Pastor Rick, and Warren Rauch) for all of their hard work these past few months. I would also like to welcome Pam Roman to the group! We are excited to have you join us! And even though we are taking a little break this summer, our Team is still making plans for the next year. 2019 is going to be a great year for our Committee! We are busy planning events that will bring more fellowship to Faith and welcome our local community to join us! Check out future church newsletters for more info!
We are always looking for more people to join our Committee and help with preparing these events. If you are someone who likes to craft, plan, and have fun then we are the group for you! Please see any of our Committee members to find out more!
Thanks for your support!
