At Faith Presbyterian we will host two very special guests this weekend. Our Men’s Breakfast will feature Bob Patterson as their morning speaker. We gather at 8 for breakfast cooked by Jimmy Martin. Bob Patterson has been a part of the Southwest Fertilizer family since 1989. He served as General Manager under the previous two owners Jim Martin and Mike James. In 2008, Bob himself became the owner and continues his running of the store on a day to day basis. He continues the tradition of providing a wide selection of quality products and outstanding customer service. 

Bob is the newly elected moderator of the Presbytery of New Covenant and a Ruling Elder at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Houston.  He is married to Diane.  He will come prepared to talk about the challenges we face as New Covenant Presbytery, gardening, lawn care and …fertilizer.  Men please R.S.V.P. to Mike Floyd at mikefloyd@academicplanet.com 

Our second special guest is the Rev. Katherine Doehring. She will be preaching on the topic, “Knowledge and Love.”  I first met Katherine when I was taking a course at Austin Seminary and she invited me to go with her to Texas A&M where she was the Campus Minister.  We fed peanut butter sandwiches to the students under the trees. 

Katherine is a Texas transplant, originally from the sunny shores of Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. She Atte4nded Davidson College and received a B.A. in Studio Art and Duke Divinity School where she received the Master of Divinity.  Throughout her life Katherine has developed a passion for the visual arts and spiritual formation.  This past year, she completed a Clinical Pastoral Education residency at Children’s Memorial Hermann in the Texas Medical Center where she collaborates with Child Life and Arts Therapists.  She is married to the Rev. Jamison Doehring, who currently is serving as a pastor at a United Methodist church in Katy, Texas.  They welcomed their first child, Henry Jamison on August 30th, just a few days after Hurricane Harvey.  Currently She is enjoying time with Henry, part-time chaplaincy and preaching.     

Following worship, we will have a Chicken Gumbo lunch, our first fund raiser of the year for Relay for Life, an event that raises funds for Cancer research coming to Baytown on April 6.
