“1st Annual Count Your Blessings Celebration”
 November 15
Count your blessings
 Faith celebrated our blessings and our “Koinonia”! 
November 15th was Faith’s first annual Count Your Blessings celebration! It was meant with enthusiasm and much anticipation. During the silent auctions, members fellowshipped and enjoyed the comradery while waiting for the much anticipated potluck meal. Over 50 items were donated by individuals, groups and businesses. Funds raised from the silent auctions were used to reduce building debt. It was a great day of thanksgiving and fellowship!
