Cheer on the Faith Kickball Team!
Faith is fielding a kickball team for the 11th annual Safe At Home Kickball Tournament to benefit Bridges to Independence this coming Saturday, August 6, at Long Branch Park in Crystal City. The tournament “kicks off” (pun totally intended) with an opening ceremony at 8:30 a.m. Bridges to Independence is Faith’s Mission of the Month in August. Come cheer on Faith’s team!
Next Week: Learn More About Bridges to Independence (B2I)
If you haven’t gotten fired up about B2I watching the kickball tournament, come to church on Sunday to learn more about their work. A representative will give a brief presentation during worship and be available to answer questions between services.
Mission of the Month: Ciudad Juarez Ministry
Doctora Mendóza-Bruce provides health services and education to vulnerable people in Juarez. She also assists 95 students in all grade levels with school scholarships. Her ministries rely solely on donations and volunteers. More detailed information is available in the summer issue of the Key.
You can give to the mission of the month by using the special mission offering envelopes in the pews, or online.
Summer Sunday School
Throughout the summer, families with Sunday School-age children are invited to bring children directly to the Fellowship Hall before the 9:30 service. There, we’ll have a variety of fun activities planned. Then children will join their parents in worship during the offering. Complete schedule of Summer Sunday School offerings.
