The Big Freeze

Hello Faith-ers

It is finally warming up after the big freeze we just had. I found myself being lazy and wanting to just curl up with a cup of hot cocoa and sit by the fire reading a book. But apparently I am on Faith Update for this week so alas I have to write it :-).

We had a great Christmas at Faith. We had many positive comments and many of the “Yes” packets taken – packets of information given to people who said their first yes to Jesus. Praise God for using Faith Covenant Church in furthering his kingdom!

This weekend we will be in the second week of our vision series. We are going through the story of Nehemiah, a man with a vision of renewal. He has some great advice for us as we look at our vision of renewing hearts, homes and cities. You are not going to want to miss this weekend as we dive into week two of our vision series called, Brick by Brick.

See you Sunday,

-Jon Oney

HERE IS WHAT IS COMING UP AT FAITH

Faith Choir Members Wanted For Monthly Hymn Sings

We want to let you know we are going to be running a trial period of monthly hymn sings led by Gary Nyquist. It is our desire that we would have a hymn sing every last Sunday of the month for the next three months. After the three months, depending on the turnout, we may continue doing one a month. We also want to put together a choir for these hymn sings. Rehearsals will be in the week before each Hymn Sing: on Tuesdays from 6:30 to 9pm; and Saturdays from 9am to noon. If you are interested in singing in the choir please email cgoff@faithcovenant.org. Our first rehearsals will be Tuesday, January 21st & Saturday, January 25th. If you do not want to sing in the choir but want to enjoy the hymns, our first Hymn Sing will be January 26 at 4pm. 

Infant Baptism/Dedication Class

If you are the parent of a little one and desire to either baptize or dedicate your child, please register to attend our parent class scheduled for 11am on January 26. This is followed by a service of celebration and welcome for your little one in February. Parent application is due before class, on January 20 to jsorensen@faithcovenant.org.
