2015 Intergenerational Mission Trip. Join us this summer, August 2-8, as we remember the 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina by helping with the rebuilding process in New Orleans through Project Homecoming. Project Homecoming grew from the Hurricane Katrina response of Presbyterian Disaster Assistance in partnership with the Presbytery of South Louisiana. Volunteer groups assist low-income families, elderly and disabled people who have struggled for many years to rebuild their flood damaged homes. Volunteers are hosted at The Volunteer Village in New Orleans. A work site manager is on site with each volunteer group to guide the work, and all building materials and tools are provided. For more information about Project Homecoming, visit http://projecthomecoming.net/. Skilled and unskilled persons are invited and needed. Participants must be at least 14 years of age. Please contact Bea Miller or Michael Metz (656-3847 for further details or pick up a brochure and application at the church entrances and in the church office.
Habitat for Humanity Build. Once again Faith has the opportunity to participate in the Habitat build along with other churches and FSU. Faith has participated in the funding and volunteer construction activities for about 25 years! This year's build is at 315 Fairfield Avenue off Woodville Highway, south of the fairgrounds. Because the number of volunteers is limited on the site, volunteers must sign up in advance of a work day. No construction experience is necessary; all tools, gloves, nail aprons, etc., are provided at the work site. Dress comfortably and wear closed-toe shoes. Volunteers must be 16 years old or older during the first phase of the heavier construction. Those under 16 can participate during the latter stages of construction. For more information, contact Karen Ballentine, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fellowship Cruise. Every few years our Chancel Choir takes a fellowship cruise. However, this fellowship opportunity is open to the entire congregation. In October of this year, we will cruise New England and Nova Scotia for a "Fall Colors Cruise." If you'd like to learn more about this fellowship opportunity, click here to visit our cruise website or contact Peter Pursino for more information.
