Seeding Plant Event to be Held June 10th -

We’re beginning a new initiative – called Seed Planting Events – designed to grow the social capital of supporters and involvement in the wide range of activities at Roots of Faith.  Even though you’re likely familiar with some of our programs, there likely are other activities of which you may not be aware.  Or perhaps you’ve considered getting involved at Roots of Faith, but didn’t know how. On Sunday, June 10, immediately after morning worship, Pastor Ben will be leading a Seed Planting Event.  We hope that you will attend and help to plant new seeds of ministry within our community.  Contact Pastor Ben at 724-825-3390 for more information.

“The Neighborhood Table Block Party”
That’s right, for the summer months we will be adding a 4th TNT that we will be taking to the streets. We will be blocking 8th street and using the Kenneth Curly Park for our cookouts. Our vision was to get the community involved in what we are doing, and we are excited to say that the community jumped at the chance to get involved. These dinners will be sponsored by: Sharpsburg Family Worship Center, Sharpsburg Rotary, Metro PCS, First English Lutheran Church of Sharpsburg, and Sharpsburg Council member Joe Simbari. These nights will feature a simple hot dog cookout, and live worship music.
Dates: May 24th, June 28th, July 26th, August 23rd, September 27th
