OUTREACH WITH 5POINT7 CHURCH THIS SUMMER…  A team from Faith Church will partner with Trinity Presbyterian to help run a VBS for our EPC church plant in Detroit, 5point7 Community Church. VBS will be 12:00-3:00 on July 26-28.  Faith Church will take the lead on the 26th & 27th, and Trinity will lead the 28th. Here is a list of ways you can help support:

  • Pray for the students, weather, participation, volunteers and God’s purpose.
  • We need 12 volunteers to help students do games, crafts, music and teach a Bible story. We need volunteers to help from 11:00-4:00 on the 26th & 27th.
  • Donate any of the following:
    • 2 dozen pens
    • Sharpies—red, blue, green, black (3 each)
    • 200 napkins
    • 200 paper plates
    • 150 small bottles of water
    • 75 Ziploc sandwich bags
    • 2 rolls of masking tape
    • 125 of the small individual bags of chips
    • 100 toilet paper rolls
    • Cash contributions to cover the cost of food and additional supplies

Please view the message below from Brian Evans from 5point7 Church in Detroit about how your help with a VBS at their church can help change hearts, families, and a community. Drop items off on Sunday, July 9, 16, or 23. Contact Suzanne Swanson for info or to help.


DOWNLOAD THE FAITH CHURCH APP…Subsplash.com/faithepc/app. Use the app on:

  • Sunday Morning: Check-in to worship, submit prayer requests, view the order of worship, read the announcements, give online if you forget your checkbook.
  • Throughout the Week: Check dates and times for events, read the announcements, stay up-to-date with our supported missionaries, listen to sermons, get answers to frequently asked questions, access all contact information for the church in one place and give online if you forgot to give on Sunday or want to set-up a recurring gift through the app. It’s easy to do!

FAMILY MISSION PROJECT… This summer we are encouraging families to create memories and make a difference in other’s lives. One opportunity that we want to offer up is to use the summer to collect back-to-school supplies so we can fill a backpack and give it to a child who could not purchase the basic supplies needed for going back to school in the fall. We will give the backpacks to some of our supported ministries in Detroit so that they get in the hands of some kids who would be blessed by your efforts. Read More on the Blog…

LEARN MORE ABOUT FAITH IN ACTION… Who: All members and attenders young and old. What: Join us on a church-wide summer initiative to be a blessing in our community. How: Look around your communities and look for ways you can show people in that community love. Read More on the Blog…

HOLY SMOKE BBQ COOK-OFF!… August 26th.  Men, save the date and let us know now if you want to compete. Competitors will bring their best recipe, and the rest of us (everyone in attendance) get to sample the results and cast a vote for the best BBQ. A trophy will be provided to the champion, and we all get to enjoy the fruits of your labor! The judging/eating will take place around 1 PM, but guys are encouraged to come early to hang out, enjoy one another, and partake in some backyard-style games.  This is a great event to bring non-Faith friends to as well. Email steve@faith-epc.org if you’d like to compete; otherwise, put it on your calendar and plan to attend!

SUMMER OFFICE HOURS… Please check the office hours if you have church business over summer. The office hours will be a little different every week due to vacations and summer schedules.
