Faith Covenant Church

Will Foley Lose the Beard?

Posted on Feb 6, 2014 in Faith Updates

Big Mustache cartoonI challenged our congregation this week – if 250 FCC’ers pack food for Feed My Starving Children mega pack, I’ll shave my beard for the first time in 15 years.  Monday night I had the joy of packing food with FMSC with 20 of my fellow Faith Covenanters.  It was a beautiful cross section of our church community.  It’s addictive, what’s not to get excited about spending 2 hours to feed 175 kids for a whole year.  In fact, I’m going back tonight with my family and friends, and I’ve asked our Friday prayer group to pray while we pack food 10am-noon.  Thanks to everybody who’s taken up the challenge.  It’s not too late to sign up for tonight, Friday, or even an early Saturday morning time:  http://volunteer.fmsc.org/Register/mobilepack/event.aspx?event=1402-181#.UvPp_rSrbzI

If you take up the challenge, make sure to write out a label and place it on my mustache icon in the main church lobby by next Sunday, February 16.

Blessings, Pastor John
