“For I am certain that nothing can separate us from his love: neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers or powers, neither the present nor the future, neither the world above nor the world below--there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39 (GNT)
Clothing Container Fundraising Program
Church Family, we now have a clothing donation box behind the church. It is located near the driveway to the Pine Tree Ridge development. The church will receive $50 per month for having the bin there. So please clean out your closets and fill up the bin…and tell your friends and family about it too. See below for more information and what is an acceptable donation and what is not. Thank you!
Help your community place their unwanted/gently used clothing, shoes, apparel & linens in our clothing collection containers. This saves our landfills and gives back to low income families in need!

Currently, we help raise funds for the American Cancer Fund, Rotary International, Eden Autism, and many other local non-profits.

SOCIAL MINISTRY PROJECT FOR NOVEMBER – FISHER FOUNDATION – VETERAN’s
A Bakeless Bake Sale to support the Fisher House Foundation
It’s time to find out what happened to all those dessert recipes that were collected during the month of October!!
Well, they will be available for a donation to the “cookie jar” on the table in the foyer!! The proceeds from this project will be sent to support the Fisher House Foundation. The Fisher House is a charity and foundation that builds comfort homes where military & veteran’s families can stay free of charge, while a loved one is in the hospital. Fisher Houses are located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide, and, in Europe, close to the medical center or hospital it serves. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is never a lodging fee. Any questions, see Nancy Gansner.

Check out the can in the Fellowship Hall to recycle aluminum cans. Not only does it help the environment, but it will generate some cash for the church. Beth Schoening has volunteered to empty the can periodically and take the cans to the recycling center. So, if you have any aluminum cans at home, please bring them in and it will help the earth and Faith Church! Thank you! (Make sure they are aluminum though…if a magnet does not attach to it, it’s aluminum.) Thank you to everyone who is filling the can!
