News
Feast of Justice
Last year Feast of Justice voted to expand their ministry year-round. This required the very expensive addition of an HVAC unit. Feast asked her partner organizations to donate $500 each to help make up the cost of the unit. We are happy to report that Faith has been able to grant that request because of special offerings collected during Harvest Home Sunday in November.
We are also proud to announce that our own Deacon Dorothy Wilson has been named the new treasurer of Feast of Justice. Another Faith member, Carolyn Edwards, sits on Feast's Board of Directors. Faith is honored to be in partnership with this outstanding Lutheran social ministry organization,m and we pledge to continue  our efforts to feed the hungry in our neighborhood.
Women of Faith
The mighty Women of Faith raised over $2,000 during the Advent season for their ongoing charitable work. The first-ever Christmas Bazaar included a bake sale, craft sale, lunch counter, tasting table and raffle baskets. Youngsters could get a picture taken with Santa and shop in a special section just for kids. Money raised supports Feast of Justice, Gemma (the home for abandoned and abused children), Caring Friends (formerly Aid for Friends), Lutheran Association of Missionaries and Pilots, and the Oaks Indian Reservation. Funds raised by the Women at the annual Christmas Party benefited Covenant House of Philadelphia (a shelter for homeless youth).
Never Surrender Hope
Never Surrender Hope, the support group for families dealing with addiction, has expanded its meeting schedule at Faith Lutheran. The group will now meet on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month. NSH holds meetings for families to share their issues in a supportive environment. They also provide transportation and emotional support for addicted family members before, during, and after treatment. They serve as a referral service and encourage current drug users to seek help. Additionally, NSH champions advocacy for drug treatment and humane consideration for those under the burden of addiction. Faith is honored to host this very worthwhile and essential organization.
60th Anniversary Party
On March 6, 1960, Faith Lutheran Church chartered as a member congregation of the now-defunct Evangelical Lutheran Church. Even though the denomination has changed, our congregation continues to serve the neighborhood in myriad ways. We will celebrate 60 years of ministry with a special dinner/dance on March 8, 2020 at the Maltese Room on Bristol Pike from 4 to 6 pm. Tickets are $40 and ALL are welcome. There will be a choice of 3 entrees plus beer and wine (a cash bar is available for mixed cocktails). there will be a dj, dancing, and raffle baskets. We hope to see EVERYONE there! For more details, contact Laura Duffield.
