Spaghetti Dinner - Benevolence in Mercy - $600+ Raised

Thanks to all the hard work, the volunteers and friends of Faith who attended.
Over $600 was raised to add to our Benevolence in Mercy fund.
"The one who does acts of mercy, does so with cheerfulness."

Acts of Mercy
Faith is hosting a spaghetti dinner as a fund raiser to support her benevolent activity throughout the year. Annually, Faith provides thousands of dollars in aid for families and individuals who are in dire need.

Our Benevolence in Mercy is governed by the Elders of our church. Faith uses our gifts to provide food, shelter, and other individual needs. Cash is NEVER given out.
" we, though many, are one body in Christ, ... Having gifts that differ according to the grace given us... if service, in our serving, the one who teaches in his teaching;... the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness (Romans 12:5-8)."
Suggested Donations
  • Children 4 and under Free!

  • 12 and up $7
Contact Wendy Hagan to help with preparations or call Faith (636) 239-0554.

A Story of Mercy $500 before Christmas
How the Lord Cares for People
It was a week before Christmas and there was a message left on the Church's phone. "I'd like to give $500 to Faith to help someone in need." Benevolence in Mercy went into action. The caller hoped that the gift would help someone in time for Christmas.
