This Sunday we will continue our #50YearsOfFaith celebrations with the Music of Faith UCC from the past 50 years! A HUGE thanks to our official musicians and our volunteer musicians in Faith’s worship band, Faith’s Choir, and others who have a passion for music.
There will then be a potluck after service to which all are invited. Then at 1pm there will be an organ concert and sing along with organ music from Allen Hennig, Rev. Al Hennig’s son (Rev. Al Hennig will be with us also this Sunday), we hope you will stay around for this, it should be fun! The concert and sing along should be about 30-45 minutes and we invite everyone to join in!
Just after the church service and before the potluck, everyone is invited to gather outside to sing a big happy birthday to Louie Heras’ nephew, Michael, who is turning 17 on September 20th. He continues his journey towards defeating cancer (Osteosarcoma) and he’ll be spending his birthday in the hospital for his continuing chemo treatments. Louie is putting together a video for his birthday and would like to include everyone from Faith UCC singing Happy Birthday, sending him blessings, saying prayers or words of encouragement and things like that along with a balloon release for the children all in honor and support of Michael. Some balloons have gold ribbon for Childhood Cancer Awareness and the others have a yellow ribbon which represents Osteosarcoma/Bone Cancer. We hope that you will join in for this special show of support during this Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Please group together just after church service and we’ll record this to include in the video for Michael’s birthday!
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, a time to honor and remember children and families affected by these rare diseases, and help rally support to give kids with cancer better outcomes by supporting our groundbreaking research.
During the month of September:
- 25,000 families around the world will get the horrible news that their child or teen has cancer.
- 6,667 families will experience the loss of a child.
More children are being diagnosed with cancer today than ever before. Let’s change that.
