Hot Dog and Hamburger Picnic planned

for July’s 50th Anniversary Event July 17th

Please plan to attend Faith’s hot dog and hamburger picnic this Sunday!

Come to church ready to party and celebrate our mission work!

Let’s eat, celebrate, work, and have some fun… (details below)


     Our 50th anniversary celebration event for July will be a hamburger and hot dog lunch – followed by homemade ice cream – after church on July 17.  We will also have watermelon and hope we have enough brave souls to compete in a watermelon  seed spitting contest!!  The focus for the month’s event is “Mission,” and the picnic lunch will take place in conjunction with Faith’s adult literacy program—LEAP.  Also during our time together we will be preparing packets of items for use at the Karnes City Detention Center, where Rev. Dr. Helen Boursier and Rev. Sabrina Jennings work with the mothers and children incarcerated there.


To get into the picnic spirit, everyone is invited to come to church wearing “picnic” attitre – ready to celebrate during worship and party afterward! During worship, different mission projects Faith and its members are involved with will be recognized. (Speakers will include representatives from SOS Food Bank, Family Promise, Edenhill Communities, and LEAP).  Please plan on attending the picnic after church on the 17th of July in the area adjacent to Baese Hall. If it is too warm to eat outside, we will set up tables in Baese for eating. So, OK, we’ve decided it’s going to be too hot to eat outside, so we are setting up indoors on Saturday at 1 p.m. if you’d like to lend a hand. . .


    If you haven’t signed up to attend or to bring anything to the potluck, don’t worry. . . There will be enough food for everyone. But, if you feel strongly about wanting to bring something, we could use a few more chopped onions, sliced tomatoes, and shredded lettuce, as well as sliced cheese for the burgers, potato salad or chips, and the like. Be sure to bring something you wouldn’t mind taking home in case our “cups” overflow and there are leftovers.


Anyone who plays an instrument  is invited to bring it to the picnic for an after-lunch jam session, along with singing! Let’s have some summertime fun while celebrating Faith’s 50th year!


Looking forward to seeing you Sunday!
