More Help Keeping Sex in the Fireplace


A few people asked, in response to the sermon preached this past Sunday at Faith on Jesus’ teaching on lust, if there were resources out there that might be helpful in this area.   With all the messages our culture sends us about sex, many of us may need help in figuring out how we can use this great gift in the way God intends.

Here are a few suggestions: 


Support Groups – Fremont Presbyterian Church, located in mid-town, has a couple of groups geared to dealing with sexual issues.  Avenue is a support group which provides a safe place for men to work out issues relating to pornography and other sexual issues. Unintended Journey is a confidential healing group for women whose lives and marriages have been devastated by their husband’s inappropriate sexual behavior.  Both groups are held on Monday nights at Fremont.  For more information call 737-7729 or check out


Internet Screening Products – Check out, which is a resource provided by the National Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families.  You’ll find assistance here in finding the internet safety solution that will best suit your needs.


Satellite TV Alternative – Check out which is a direct-to-home satellite television service that offers 36 family-friendly TV and radio channels.


Books – Resources that have been helpful for many people in recent years are Every Man’s Battle, a book by Stephen Arterburn and Fred Stoeker, and Every Woman’s Battle, by Shannon Ethridge.  Both books offer a biblical approach to achieving victory over sexual temptation. 


Resources for Parents – There are some great interactive tools designed to help parents begin to have conversations about sexuality with their children.  Two you might consider are Passport to Purity, by Dennis & Barbara Rainey, and God’s Design for Sex by Stan & Brenna Jones.  These tools provide a workable plan and effective tools to successfully prepare a pre-teen or early teen in the area of sexuality.  Both are available online at


There are many other resources out there.  As I mentioned Sunday, this is a big topic, one which we as a church will need to return to again and again that we can continue to clarify for ourselves, and for our children, God’s teaching when it comes to this remarkable gift of sexuality.


I look forward to worshipping with you on Sunday!


Grace & Peace,

Bible  Presentations


    It is a tradition of Faith Church to present a Bible to every student in our third grade class and to those above third grade who have not yet received their Bible.  We ask the students to start to familiarize themselves with their Bibles by memorizing the books of the Bible and the Lord's Prayer. 

    A letter was sent out to those students we thought would be participating.  However, if you know of someone who would like to participate and did not receive  a letter please let me know so I can contact them.  Thank You! --- Sue Kirk,  Children's Christian Ed. Coordinator



Help Name the One Great

Hour of Sharing Fish

What Fish?

      Over the last several decades, while One Great Hour of Sharing themes and posters have come and gone, the one unchanging presence for all but a few years in the ate 1990s has been the coin box in the shape of a fish.

      Beginning next year, the coin box will not be the only fish in the sea of One Great Hour of Sharing resources. Making its debut in this year’s children’s materials is a new character, a little fish called—well, we don’t know its name yet, so we’re just calling it the Little Fish. It will be up to the kids in your Sunday school classes to participate in a contest to find a name for the Little fish.

          Names will be judged on the basis of creativity and appropriateness If there is a special reason your class chose a particular name feel free to include it. The judges reserve the right to be swayed by these rationales.

In the event that more than one class submits the winning name, up to five classes will be declared winners. Whoever submits the name first will definitely be one of the winners, If there are more than five classes submitting the winning name, the other tour winners will be drawn at random from all those submitting the name.

What are the Symptoms of a Heart Attack?

· A crushing, squeezing, or burning pain, pressure, or fullness in the center of the chest. The pain may radiate to the neck, one or both arms, the shoulders or the jaw. The chest discomfort lasts more than a few minutes or can diminish in intensity and return.

Shortness of breath, dizziness, nausea or upset stomach, chills, sweating or weak/fast pulse

· Feeling of an irregular heart beat  · Cold and clammy skin, gray facial color · Fainting or loss of consciousness  *Fatigue

Note: You may not feel all of these symptoms. Some people experience no symptoms -- this is called silent ischemia.

Women often have different symptoms of heart attack than men. They may not experience chest pain, but other symptoms and a pain high in the abdomen or chest. Or pain in the jaw, back or neck.


Call 911 Immediately if: · You or someone you are with shows signs of a heart attack. Seek emergency help without delay. · Your angina (chest pain) no longer responds to medication; this may indicate that a heart attack is under way. · Your angina attacks become more frequent, prolonged, and severe; as angina worsens, the risk of a heart attack increases.

Rebuilding Together


Many members of Faith have expressed their wish to participate in mission trips, but time and distance have made it impossible to reconcile with their schedules.  Now it’s possible for everyone at Faith to participate in a one-day mission trip just up the road to help our neighbors through Rebuilding Together.

Formerly Christmas in April, the Sacramento chapter of Rebuilding Together makes an impact through providing necessary repairs free of charge to existing homeowners. These necessary repairs often include home modifications, roofing, plumbing, and electrical repairs and/or improvements - the goal is to provide a warm, safe and dry environment for low-income homeowners , enabling them to live independently and with dignity.

Please consider joining us on Saturday, April 29th as part of a building team from Faith.  No particular skills are needed and all efforts are appreciated.  If you have questions, please contact members of the Mission Committee, Jane Owen, John Sugar, Marthe Sweet, Sue Hooper, Carolyn Jaynes,  Conney Willis, or Scott or Sheri Peifer who have actually participated in prior work days.  Our volunteer list needs to be finalized by March 31st, so please let Conney Willis know if you’re interested by email at or by calling 530-432-2318, or look for a sign up list in the Narthex beginning Sunday, February 26th.


We thank you

Dear Faith Friends:

              My family and I wish to express our words of appreciation for your many cards and prayer support during my father’s last days. We are at peace knowing he is with our Lord and Savior, and we have wonderful memories to hold in our hearts.

In Christ, Joan Parks


Dear Faith Folk:

              We want to send our thanks to everyone who supported us through prayers, cards, letters, e-mails and to the Deacons, staff and congregation who made our son Don’s memorial service a memorable experience. We would like to thank each of you personally but that is a daunting task.

We place our trust in God’s mercy,

Jim and Betty Park

“Cotton Patch Gospel” Coming to Faith on April 9th, 6:00pm


As a fundraiser for FAMILY PROMISE the “Cotton Patch Gospel” will be performed at Faith on Sunday April 9th at 6:00 p.m.  “Cotton Patch Gospel” is a retelling of the Gospels of Matthew and John set in the contemporary South, accompanied by bluegrass music.

              It was first performed in New York in 1981.  Christianity today said “Drop everything and go see the “Cotton Patch Gospel”.  Your feet will be tapping and your fingers snapping.”  The New York Times called it “an exuberant country western hoedown.”  It’s a show that gets your toes tapping and laughs coming non-stop.

Peacemaking Conference
