The youth of Faith Church have the opportunity to participate in a summer service project with Sierra Service Project. This year, the teens and chaperones are hosting a fundraiser Luau following the 10 a.m. worship service on June 9th. This family-friendly event includes lunch, silent auction and activities. Funds raised help cover the cost of travel to southern California where the teens will be doing community service.
Tickets are available in the rotunda before and after church or by calling the church office.
At FAITH5 Summer Nights, anyone and everyone is invited to hang-out with old friends, make new friends and enjoy the evening with games, snacks and a simple Bible reflection. This is a family friendly event and is open to the greater community. 7-8:30 p.m. on the lawn and patio at Faith Church.
A great opportunity to learn more about Faith Church!

As you have heard, Fr. Sean has accepted a call to serve on the diocesan staff in Indianapolis. Sunday, April 7 will be the Cox family’s last Sunday with us. You are invited to celebrate the end of Fr. Sean’s ministry at Faith Church with a potluck immediately following the 10 a.m. service. Please bring your favorite main dish, salad or dessert to share.
There is also an opportunity to share your personal thanks, blessings and well wishes with Sean, Katie and the kids via a note or card. Cards are available in a couple of locations in the rotunda. A box is also available for your personal note. An additional expression of our thanks for Sean’s ministry will be a gift. The Cox family has requested a monetary gift. If you choose to give towards this gift, you can either place a check or cash in the specific box for this. Notate on the check: ‘Rectors gift’ on the memo line. A gift can also be made using online giving.
Fr. Sean and Katie have given each of us so much during their time here at Faith. It is now our turn to thank them for all the times of joy, tears, laughter and bad puns. Let us bless them in this small way for how much we have been blessed by their ministry to us.

Is God Calling You to Serve as a Stephen Minister? As we go about our worship, fellowship, and other ministries, we may recognize the many needs for care in our congregation and community. We may encounter people who are experiencing grief, illness, hospitalization or other challenges. We may feel drawn to listen and help but wonder how we can make a difference in the lives of those who need support. If you are interested in developing lay caregiving skills that can encourage others, consider learning more about Stephen Ministry. To learn more about Stephen Ministry at Faith Episcopal Church and the new training class that will begin this spring, contact the office or speak to Bob Gilmore, Sharon Lawrence, or Patti Faires on Sundays.
