Women of Faith will meet in the Cedar Room in the Community Center to begin a Bible study on John 15:1-17 accompanied by the workbook “Where Love Abides” by Donna Pyle. We will do some work projects around the campus as needed following the study for all those who can stay and do so.

SUPPORTING THE NACHT FAMILY
As a way of honoring Melba’s memory, you are invited to help financially support the Nacht family. Mike is facing the combined high costs of medical bills, funeral expenses and college tuition. Melba lived modestly, but faithfully, always trusting God to provide. While we can’t change the events of life, we can make circumstances more manageable for the family. If you feel compelled to give, please donate through the GoFundMe or send a donation directly to the family in memory of Melba.

A SIMPLE AND CONVENIENT WAY TO GIVE
Consider automating your regular donations with our electronic giving program. Faith relies on the financial support of the congregation and electronic giving offers an easy way to give on a recurring basis. To become an electronic giver, click here. Please contact the church office if you have questions.
The Congregational President is challenging everyone to take a moment and think of areas you might be able and willing to serve, and to jump in!
Some examples might be:
Teaching or mentoring- leading or helping with Sunday School, serving on the Youth Ministry Board, starting or participating in a Life Group etc.
Direct service to others in need- visiting shut-ins, working with Embrace Grace, making quilts with Threads of Faith, etc.
Campus Maintenance- Lawn mowing, grounds maintenance, helping with projects when needed, attending Men of Faith once a month. Our old buildings and grounds need a lot of care, and this is one area where we especially lack volunteers.
Leadership- Most of our boards need more participation, some have only one person serving (or none!). Our elected church officers could use some help!
Please contact Mike Todd at 360-491-3868 or firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer or
contact the Church office if you’d like to learn more.
What is Embrace Grace? Embrace Grace is an outreach that serves single women with unexpected pregnancy. We offer support to them through resources, relationships, and encouragement!
What is happening? Our weekly class is offered one evening a week for about 2 hours. We go over scripture and encouragement. We help soon to be moms process some of their emotions and pray with them. We will be offering a baby shower for the moms as well as a day of pampering during their pregnancy!
Where have you seen God work? One of our moms was considering abortion, her boyfriend found her searching for ways to abort on the internet. He encouraged her to go to our embrace grace meeting the next day. He said, 'let's wait to see what they say before making any decisions.' She came to class worried about how we would react to her. We showed her grace and understanding of her fears. We talked about all the amazing things she can offer to this baby. She walked away feeling hope that she can do this! She said, 'I have never had someone tell me it's okay to have fears, I see that other moms feel the same way, which means if they can do it, I can do it!'
How can I serve? Fill out the online form on our website HERE! Once you show interest and fill out the correct forms, you will get updates on volunteer opportunities and you can chime in when you are able!
