It’s Christmas Card Time

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.

Faith Presbyterian Prayer Team

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.Praying Hands 1
