Words for Meditation
“Each year some new heart finally hears, finally sees, finally knows love. And in heaven there is great rejoicing! The Child is born anew and one more knee is bowed.” By Ann Weems

There is still time to help us Adopt a Family for Christmas
As you know, Faith Presbyterian is adopting a family through the Presbyterian Urban Ministries (PUM) in San Diego. If anyone would like to help out you can contact Michelle Crownhart through the church office at 619-582-8480. She has the list of suggestions for the family and will be coordinating the Christmas delivery. Thank you all so much!
If you have an extra Christmas card and you think that you might have forgotten someone at Church, then you can be sure of getting the card to everyone by mailing one card to the church office, and have Lou Costello post it on the Christmas Card board in the church office area for all your friends to see at Faith.
There is a prayer team available to you at Faith Presbyterian Church. They are Mr. David Helkenn and Ms. Mary Beck and on Sunday’s they are available to meet after worship for a time of private prayer with anyone wishing to do so. Ask an usher to introduce you if you do not know them. You can ask one or both of them to pray with you. They meet in the Prayer Room which is just adjacent to the narthex (main entrance to the church). An appointment is not necessary.
