Announcements – April 24

It’s Volunteer Sunday!
Today we are lifting up the giving of time as a part of stewardship. All morning long, you’ll have a chance to learn about different volunteer opportunities, as well as learn more about the community organizations that Faith partners with to serve our neighbors beyond the church walls. Stop by the Fellowship Hall between services today for Faith’s first Volunteer Fair!

High School Youth Coffee & Conversation
Today at 10:30 a.m. Catch up with your Faith friends and enjoy coffee and conversation with Dan, Sam, and Annie.

Mission Quilters Cancelled Today
Due to a scheduling conflict, the Faith Mission Quilters has been cancelled for today. The next meeting of the Mission Quilters will be Sunday, May 22 at 1:00 p.m.

Stewardship at Faith
Throughout April we will be thinking about what it means to take hold of the freedom we have in Christ and serve as faithful stewards of God’s gifts. Members of Faith will share in worship why it is meaningful to them to give to Faith’s ministry, and we’ll invite everyone to think about their own stewardship and consider filling out a plan for giving for this year.

Mission of the Month: Arlington Foster Care/Adoption Program
The Arlington Foster Care/Adoption Program is a service offered by Arlington Department of Human Services, Child and Family Services Division. One goal of the program is to ensure a temporary living arrangement is available for children who can no longer live in their homes because of abuse, neglect or other severe family problems.

You can help out by becoming a foster parent, by sharing information with people you know who might be interested in becoming foster parents, by purchasing a car seat (see insert), or by making a monetary donation to the “Mission of the Month” program. For more information, see this month’s Key, or visit their display in the Fellowship Hall.

Next Sunday: Good News Jail & Prison Ministry
Next week, Faith welcomes Chaplain Earl Karl, the Good News Jail & Prison Ministry Chaplain at the Arlington County Detention Facility. Chaplain Karl will be speaking at all three services and will be available to answer your questions!

Spring Middle Adult Group Event
The spring event for the Middle Adult Group will take place on Saturday, May 7 starting at 5 p.m. at the home of Jim and Holly.  Please bring a side or dessert to share.  There is plenty of street parking. Please email Pastor Yvette if you plan to attend.

Vacation Bible School – July 11 – 15

The VBS Staff is busy getting ready to catch the wave of God’s amazing love. Please help us “build” our surf shack! If you have any of the following items to donate or loan, we will happily accept:

  • Tiki torches
  • Hawaiian / beachy décor
  • Surf or boogie boards
  • Aquatic stuffed animals (fish, crabs, dolphins, etc)

We are still looking for at least one more adult who can be available to teach all of the days. If you’re able, please contact the church office.

Garden Events
We’re gearing up for another great growing season in the garden! Work days are planned for Saturdays, May 7, June 4, July 2, August 6, September 3 and October 1.  This year, we’ll be setting up a “farm market” one Sunday per month, May – August, to sell extra produce at church.
