February 18 Announcements

This Sunday


FAITH AND CULTURE FORUM… Join us this Wednesday from 5:45-7:30. We’ll begin with fellowship around pizza and salad (5:45-6:30; suggested $5 donation/person), followed by a time for kids (kindergarten – 5th grade) and the forum for adults (6:30-7:30). This month we’ll explore how consumerism has become an all-consuming way-of-life for most Americans. We no longer consume to live, but live to consume, and these habits have transformed our relationships, as friendships and marriages, spirituality and church are driven by meeting personal needs. We’ll talk through how the gospel helps us recognize this major idol of our culture and transform our relationships to a healthier, more God-honoring and ultimately satisfying way of life.

MISSIONS WEEK: “A FAMILY ON MISSION”… Our theme this year will seek to build community within the body of Faith Church as a spiritual family doing local missions activity in a fun and practical way. Whether you’re single, married, have kids, or don’t, we’re all part of an extended spiritual family, and together we’re sent on God’s mission.  Sunday worship on March 11 and 18 will explore our theme.  Wednesday, 3/14, will include speakers from each of the organizations we’ll serve with on our Saturday service projects, and Saturday, 3/17, will begin with a breakfast and commissioning before we scatter to serve in the community, which will include opportunities for kids, youth, and adults.  Make plans to join us on these days. More details are to come!

SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS NEEDED… We have an immediate need for one person to serve once-a-month in the 3 and 4-year-old Sunday school class during the 9:45 AM worship service. All materials are provided. Please contact Ann Strombeck (ann@faith-epc.org).

PRAYER BREAKFAST TICKETS… The annual Rochester Area Prayer Breakfast is Thursday, May 3rd from 7:00AM – 9:00AM.  This year’s speaker is Bob Goff. He is the New York Times best- selling author of Love Does, Honorary Consul to the Republic of Uganda, and an attorney who founded Love Does – a nonprofit human rights organization operating in Uganda, India, Nepal, Iraq and Somalia. The Breakfast is hosted at the Athletics Center O’Rena at Oakland University. Doors open at 6:45AM and the program begins at 7:30AM.  Tickets are $25 each.
