Dear Faith Family,

One of my favorite worship songs is “I Can Only Imagine”.  It is an amazing true story of a young boy that is the product of heartbreaking childhood trauma.  This worship song is special for many reasons.  In particular, it moves listeners to tears by describing a forever experience with a heavenly Father who loves us with an unimaginable love, reconciling us with Him through His Son.  It paints a beautiful picture of what it will be like to be surrounded by His glory—a picture of the awe of being in Jesus’ presence, forever worshiping Him.
I recently read the following excerpt that was written from a wife to her husband on their anniversary:
When you are in your hopelessness, I am there for you.
When you are in your sadness, you matter to me.
When you are in your fear, I am available.
When you feel like you are alone, you can call on me.
When you feel rejected, I will turn to you.
When you feel abandoned, I am there for you.
As I read this, it reminded me of Hebrews 13:5 – “I will never leave you or abandon you.”
My prayer is that we will all take time to imagine what it will be like to be in the presence of God for all eternity.
See you Sunday!
Susan Malone

Operation Christmas Child (OCC)

PLEASE HELP as we serve as a missionary throughout the world from Hewitt, TX. The Senior Adult  Ministry is doing just that by collecting items each month for our Operation Christmas Child Boxes.  During June, we are collecting stuffed animals, toy dolls and need 28 more to complete 100 boxes.  We are still in need of some of our previous months items -  jump ropes, flash lights and yoyos in addition to the items for this month. Thank you for your helping support missions around the world.

Summer is officially here!  

The kids and grandkids are out of school.  The days are getting hotter and longer! And, the opportunity to serve together has never been easier! 

In early July, we are taking a small group of volunteers and families to serve in Glorieta, New Mexico.  We will be partnering with Glorieta Camps to do a variety of work-related projects.  There will be something for every skill level and age level.  Each family will have their own room to sleep and will provide own transportation to get there!  It might even be a great opportunity to tag on a few days for a family vacation in the mountains.  

The dates for the trip are July 2-8.  The cost is just $500 per family or $250 per couple.  This includes lodging, meals, and supplies!  You can’t get much better than that!  If money is a problem, we have some scholarships available!  

There is nothing like serving together with family and friends!  Don’t miss your opportunity!  We have a few spots left!  First come, first served!
