Dear Pastor,

Greetings from Faith Baptist Theological Seminary where another academic year has started!

Once again, we are preparing for the annual Thanksgiving food shower for our seminary students.  Many churches have participated in past years, and our students were blessed by the generous donations of food and grocery store gift cards.

We would like to invite your church to participate this year. This is a wonderful opportunity to encourage our students and help provide for their needs, especially around the holidays. Our seminary students and their families make great sacrifices in order to train for ministry, and they are very grateful for the tangible way you show your love and support through participation in the food giveaway.

The Faith Women’s Fellowship (FWF), led by Mary Jo Brown, spearheads this event. FWF meets regularly during the school year for fellowship, training, and prayer. It is designed to be an encouragement to the spouses of seminarians and ladies attending seminary. Please let us know if your church will help. We need your church to bring non-perishable food items (or gift cards) to the new seminary building, Shipp Hall, by November 14. We will give the items away to our students on November 16, after the Faith Women’s Fellowship meeting. We would love to have you partner with us in this endeavor!

Please contact our administrative assistant, Joan Tillotson, (tillotsonjl@faith.edu  515-964-0601 ext. 278) if you can participate in the Thanksgiving food shower or if you have any questions.

In Christ,

Douglas Brown

Dean of FBTS
