Living, Learning, Leading for Christ...
Let’s Break Bread Together!
October 2nd, it’s Communion Sunday, and it's also time
to have a fellowship meal. Let’s break bread together! Time
for us to get to know each other better and have a wonderful
meal at the same time. We will also use this as an opportunity to
learn about different ministries that our church participates in.
The question that I get asked most is, "What ministries are here
at Faith?" I'm inviting all ministry leaders to set up a display on
October 2, or have a 1-minute presentation for your ministry.
Guests of honor at the dinner will be all the people who
have joined since this time last year. As a guest of honor, you
are not asked to bring anything for the meal. Everyone else is
asked to bring a favorite dish. If you already know what you are
going to bring, please use the sign-up sheet in the foyer.
See you at church —pastor tony

Thank you, Judy Wilson, and all the ladies, for the gifts of your energy, your
culinary skills, and your love. You
make our meals a great success!
Thank you, Anita Bussell for your generous gift of stools in the kitchen. We’re
gonna use ‘em—and soon!
The Seekers' Sunday School class is sponsoring "A TON OF
LOVE FOR THE HOLIDAYS", a Faith UMC Food Drive for OCS
(Orange Christian Services) in October. Large paper grocery
bags will be available for people to fill with their donations
for OCS. The bags will have a flyer with some information explaining the food drive and listing some suggested items
needed by OCS. The bags will be available at the church beginning the first Sunday in October and should be returned
anytime before November 6th. Faith collected 1/2 ton of
items in March - let's try for another 1/2 ton in October! The
Seekers' will deliver the items to OCS for Faith early November so that they may be used for the Thanksgiving/Christmas
season. If anyone would like their items picked up, please call
the church office, 886-1291 with your name and phone number and arrangements will be made to pick them up.
Meet Amy Walker, our new Youth Director!
Amy has 10 years of youth director experience (she started young). She has a bachelor's and a master's degree--both from Lamar. She is currently attending seminary at
Perkins-Houston, and is a candidate for
ordination as a deacon in the UMC. Amy
and her husband, Jeff, live here in Orange.
They have two children, Gabriel and Olivia.
Youth Happenings
Friday, Sept. 30th from 5pm-7pm, we will have a Tailgating
party at LC-M High school. We will serve links, chips, cookies, and drinks to youth that want to come hang out. There
will be some music and a few games. We are co-hosting this
with FUMC of Mauriceville. This is a great way for us to interact with the youth of our community. We need people to
donate food items or their time. Please see the sign-up
sheet by the Youth board to sign-up for at least one item.
Let's show the Youth Christ's love.
Oct. 9th is Youth Sunday, we will perform a special song for
Children's Sabbath. Don't miss out!
The youth mission trip to San Marcos was a wonderful experience for our teens, our chaperones, and especially for the
clients that were served in San Marcos. Our group worked
mainly taping, mudding, sanding, texturing and painting
sheetrock! See photos on the back of the calendar page.

The contemporary Christian band, 50/50, provided music
at our worship service on 9/11. The music was great, and
the Lord was definitely praised!
