Ways to Get Connected

Soup & Chili Cook-Off

Please join us Sunday, November 12th immediately after the service for a friendly soup and chili cook-off competition. All funds raised will go to support the Ignite Youth Ministry. Watch for an email coming soon!

Christmas Team Meeting

Anyone involved in the Christmas services should plan to attend a brief meeting following the service Sunday, November 19th. This includes all musicians, singers, AV, sound, lights, Worship Hosts and Hospitality team members involved on 12/10 or 12/24. We just want to share the plans for the upcoming season.

Christmas Pictures

Again this year, we’d like to feature your family Christmas photos during the Cantata on December 10th. If you can send your favorite family holiday photos to Tina, we’d love to include them. The pictures can be from one year ago or thirty years; sometimes the older the better. You can submit it electronically via email, or just drop the snap shot off at Tina’s desk and she’ll return it once it has been scanned.

Hope House Volunteer Days

The next Hope House Volunteer Days are October 25th (Wed.), 27th (Fri.), and 28th (Sat.) from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m

MARK YOUR CALENDAR

Remember, this year Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday. We will have a 6:30 evening service instead of a morning service to celebrate the holiday. Please put this on your calendar now.

How Do You Measure a Life? – “By How You Serve”

How do you measure a life? That’s the question we’ve been asking over the past two weeks here at Faithbridge Church. Obviously, we would intend to measure our lives by God’s standards. But just what exactly does God value, and how do those values differ from what our culture values? Join us this week as we learn to measure our lives by who and how we serve.

Blessed to bless,

Pastor Andy
