Although our HELPSY bin was removed there are two other bins in our area! We were happy to have to have a bin that accepted clothing and shoes in any condition. If you would like to still donate, the two closest bins are at the Doylestown YMCA, 2500 Lower State Road in Doylestown or at the Maple Glen Exxon, 450 Limekiln Pike in Maple Glen.
Please keep the stamps coming!
It’s a continuing need! Thank you for all your contributions. It really helps!
Hatfield Flowers and Gifts ((215) 822-1530) provides Faith with two lovely flower arrangements to adorn our sanctuary.
You can sign up to sponsor flowers, bulletins or a food basket. The flowers are $35, the bulletins are $10 and the food basket is $25.
You can dedicate any one of these things to someone special, to celebrate a birthday or in memory of a loved one. You may take the flowers home or they will be given to an ill or homebound member. The $10 for the bulletins is to help cover the cost of making the bulletins and the $25 for the food basket is money donated to “Manna on Main Street” to help feed those in the North Penn area.
To sign up for a particular Sunday either sign up on the chart on the Foyer bulletin board or call Janet in the church office (215) 368-0240.

If you need a ride to church on Sunday or you are interested in providing a ride to church to someone, please contact Dale Foster.

Sunday School: Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church new Sunday School hours will be 9:45 am to 10:25 am starting on Sunday, September 18, 2022.
At the conclusion of Sunday School, children ages 6 to 11 will return to attend 10:30 Worship Service with their family.
Children 5 and under are welcome to join Gail Achilles, or a teacher substitute, in the church nursery room during Worship Service.
This new time will benefit both the children having longer uninterrupted time for their weekly bible lesson and the teachers who will not have to miss Sunday Worship Service.
Any comments or questions, please see Gail Achilles, Christian Education Chair
Proverbs 22:6 ESV Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Our Monday Night Bible Study group will be reading, studying, and discussing the book, "Messy People - life lessons from imperfect bible heroes," by Jennifer Cowart. It is a six-week study which we will read the first session on Rahab and be ready for our first discussion on Oct 3 from 7 pm to 9 pm. We will finish this study with the sixth session on Daniel, Monday, Nov 14 (we will not be meeting on Halloween, October 31.) If you would like to grow in your relationship with Jesus and fortify your Faith in fellowship, and this book sounds interesting to you, please join us.
Just order the book, get started and join us on October 3.

SOCIAL MINISTRY Lord, when did we see you...?

Code Blue - Helping the Homeless in our Community when it gets cold at night!
The Code Blue Shelter is located at Trinity Lutheran Church (Luther Hall), 1000 W. Main St., Lansdale, PA 19446. The shelter is open when the shelter organizers call a Code Blue.
Located at the corner of Welsh Road and Valley Forge Road, Trinity provides a warm shelter, refreshments, and company for those in need on nights declared as a “Code Blue.” Code Blue declarations occur when the outside air temperature falls below 30°. Those with questions, comments or concerns can contact Mark Lanan at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow “Code Blue Shelter – Lansdale PA” on Facebook.
Faith will be collecting socks, mittens, gloves and scarves. Please put your donations in the purple bin under the coat rack in the Narthex hallway. For more information see Mary Lou Foster.
Thank you for supporting this ministry in our community!
The Lunch Bunch group is starting up again with a new name and new facilitator. The group will now be called the “Golden Girls of Faith” (Golden Men are welcome too!) They will be meeting once a month for lunch, fellowship and prayer at a local restaurant.
They will meet the first Wednesday of the month and will be starting on Wednesday, October 5, 2022.
For more information or if you need a ride, please talk to Anna Friedrich. All are welcome!
THE CHOIR IS BACK!
We are always looking for fresh faces and happy voices to lift their praise to the Lord on Tuesday nights and Sunday mornings. Practices will be on Tuesdays at 7PM in the choir room (next to the kitchen.) If you have any questions, please see Laura Cooper, Music Director. 😊
Do you shop at Giant?
If you do, you can buy Giant gift cards from the church. A $50 card costs you $50. How does the church make money? Well, when Faith purchases $1,000 worth of cards from Giant, they only charge us $950 (a 5% discount.) So, when we sell those cards to you, the church makes $50. It adds up…
A note from Carol Taylor:
Dear Church Family,
Update on John, Jr. He is having dialysis 3 times a week at a clinic. He was having problems with the equipment he was using for home dialysis. John is working from home and is able to go places to see family. It’s great to see him getting out of the house. He isn’t on a transplant list at this time but might be in the future. Many thanks from Johnny, Kathy, John and I for all your prayers. They are working. Thanks, Carol
