Dear Faith Church Family,
As you know, on September 10, we celebrated our 60th anniversary. To celebrate our blessings, the Local and Global Missions team has put together a list of items to collect throughout the year - 60 items per month to represent our 60 years.
Thank you for being generous! During the month of September we collected 549 snacks for Isle Schools. So far in October, we collected 161 items and $105 for the Isle Food Shelf.
During November, we will be collecting volunteer hours serving others. We are encouraging you to serve our neighbors in our local and broader community. Many of you are already volunteering your time here at Fatih, for example, quilting or teaching Sunday School. In the community you volunteer at the Food Shelf or One More Time. Look for opportunities to serve - schools, nursing homes, neighbors often need volunteer help. You could go along with the youth on Nov 10 to support them on their day of service.
Please record your volunteer time on the card in the narthex and put the card in the box. The hours will be tabulated and the cards will be put on the door. Our goal is at least 60 hours of volunteer service time.
For those of you who like to look for sales or for the snowbirds who want to buy ahead, here is the list for the year. We will provide details as we introduce the new item each month. September Snacks for school 549 items
