Dear People of Faith,

This week we hear words from the book of Isaiah, “He will feed his flock like a shepherd; he will gather the lambs in his arms, and carry them…and gently lead the mother sheep.” If you feel the need to be gathered from the chaos of these days and carried, turn your heart to Jesus, whom we often call the “Good Shepherd.”

Thank you to everyone who made a pledge of support to Faith for 2024.  It’s not too late; you can place your pledge card into the offering plate next week too. And thank you to all who brought wine for our Communion table. Thank you too to Louise who bakes the Communion bread each week.


Dec. 17:  9:30 worship and coffee hour,  12:30 Greening of the church (decorating)

Dec. 24, 9:30 a.m. Advent IV Eucharist

Dec. 24, 5 p.m. Christmas Eve Candlelight Eucharist with special music

A new opportunity for the New Year: Faith is looking for people to serve at the Altar, to do some secretarial work around the Sunday inserts, and to learn the ropes of ushering, building upkeep, and our finances. Don’t wait for a personal invitation!  If you have the skill set, the time and the motivation, just please let Beth or Ronnie Sue know (contact info below).

We are collecting chocolate bars and envelopes of cash or checks (any amount) to place into Baby Jesus’ crib at the front of the church.  Your cash or check will be turned into gift cards for our Monday guests and the chocolate will go along with them.

Humanitarian relief is needed across the world; here is a place to contribute: Episcopal Relief & Development. Go to

These Advent weeks are a time of waiting and watching.  Blessings to you as you navigate the Christmas rush, the blues if you experience them, the fun and joy of choosing gifts and watching the eyes of children begin to widen.  Pray for peace in the world.

Grace and peace to you,

Beth+, Faith Interim Vicar
