What a great day this past Sunday was at Fargo Faith! There were 175 in attendance for the Spring Music Service! The choir, band, kids, and our organist made excellent music, we confirmed five wonderful 8th graders, and we celebrated the occasion with a good old fashioned potluck lunch! It was a wonderful way to close out our regular season of worship!
Thank you to all of the musicians, the kids, and the Sunday School teachers for the great music. Thanks to Pastor Ray for a nice service. Thanks to everyone who brought food for the potluck. And thanks to all of the volunteers who helped with the setup and cleanup before and after the potluck. It was truly a wonderful day!
On Saturday, Sunday, May 27th at the 10am Worship Service we will include a time to remember those persons
who have died this past year, May 2017 to May 2018, and to dedicate memorials received May 2017 through
May 2018. If you have a special loved one that died in the past few year’s we would certainly take time to
remember them as will.
A flower will be placed on the altar in memory of each person. During our time of remembrance we will have a video presentation featuring those who have died this past year as music is played in the background. Following the worship service, a family member or representative can come forward to receive a flower in his or her memory.
Please contact the office if you have a loved one who has passed away recently that you would like to be a part of Memorial Sunday. We would also need two photos of your loved one to be utilized in the video presentation. These photos will be scanned and the original photos will be returned to you.
Also, a part of the service will be the dedication of gifts to the Memorial Committee Fund.
If you have questions, please call the church office at (701) 232-6844.
