WELCOME TO FAITH COMMUNITY!  

Whether you’re just checking us out online or you’ve been here in person, we’re glad you’re here. Our church began in 1966 with a small group of people who had a desire to study God’s word and live out their Faith in Community.

WORSHIP DURING COVID

General Information

Faith Community has re-opened for IN-PERSON worship. At this time, we will have a Contemporary service at 9:30 am in the Contemporary Living Center (CLC) and a Traditional service at 11:00 am in the Sanctuary. Guidelines for both services include:

  • Everyone must wear a mask while in the church building
  • Social distancing will be observed in both venues
  • Both services will include live (YES … with real people!) portions including the welcome, announcements, prayer and sermon
  • We will have some congregational singing, and we will have live music
  • Prayer and sermon times will be live
  • Both services will be live streamed
  • If parents bring their children to enjoy worship together, they can pick up a children’s bulletin for their kids. 

Virtual Sunday Worship

If you prefer to worship virtually, you can access our 9:30 and 11:00 am Sunday services each week through:

NOTE: We record our Live Stream worship, so if 9:30 or 11:00 am are not convenient times, you can watch either service at a later time. Or, another option is to go to the "WATCH" hub on our app to watch the sermon portion of the service.

Faith Kidz Sunday Schedule

  • 9:30 am only - Preschool through 6th-grade classes will be meeting again in person. Each specially designed lesson is carefully built with social distancing precautions in mind. To ensure the safety of both children and volunteers, all Faith Kidz and volunteers in attendance will be asked to wear a mask, wash hands, and have their temperature checked upon arrival. 
  • 9:30 and 11:00 - The nursery will be open both hours for parents to use if needed, but will not be staffed. Nursery or toddler classes will not be available.
  • 11:00 am - We will NOT have in-person Sunday School at the 11:00 hour. However, for families who elect to participate in worship at home, our Children's Ministries will offer a weekly Faith Kidz lesson at 11:00 am on our Faith Kidz facebook page. The video lesson will remain on the facebook page, so kids can watch it later if the 11:00 hour is not convenient. Also, all Faith Kidz lessons are available on our App in the "CHILDREN" hub and we have the most recent three weeks of video lessons available on our website's "Children" page.

NEXT CONNECT

We invite you to join us any second Sunday for Next Connect! This half-hour gathering helps folks learn more about what we believe and how you can connect to our ministries. Meet us in the church library (located in the lobby) right after either worship service. If you have questions, please contact Lynne at .  

Our goal in this brief gathering is to:

  1. Share Faith’s mission and vision
  2. Highlight our main forms of communication for you to engage in the life of the church
  3. Discuss ministry opportunities for you to grow in your relationship with God and others.
  4. Answer any questions you may have about connecting to our Faith Community family.

  • June 13, 2021
  • July 11, 2021

SUNDAY WORSHIP
(after COVID restrictions are lifted)

We can't wait to get back to our normal schedule where we will offer concurrent contemporary and traditional worship each Sunday at 9:30 and 11:00 am. Our Pastors rotate preaching in both venues. We also offer age-appropriate ministries for children and students, birth through grade 6 so they can learn about the love of Jesus. We are excited about all that God is doing and invite you to join us on Sunday mornings. We look forward to meeting you!


WORSHIP SERVICES

Traditional Worship

Sundays at 9:30 and 11:00 am
In our Traditional service, you will encounter God through the Holy Scriptures, liturgy, prayer, and singing of hymns. You will experience a rich variety of music including our Chancel Choir, Bell Choir, and the Brass Ensemble throughout the year. The traditional service is held in our beautiful Sanctuary.


Contemporary Worship

Sundays at 9:30 and 11:00 am
In our Contemporary service, you will encounter God through a Spirit-filled atmosphere that engages the senses. You will experience multimedia including screens, special lighting, and creative set designs. The music is contemporary and draws one closer to God through vocals, drums, guitar, and keyboard. The Contemporary service is held in our modern Christian Living Center.

 

CHILDREN ON SUNDAY MORNING
(after COVID restrictions are lifted)

Nursery and Toddler

Sundays at 9:30 and 11:00 am
We offer separate nursery and toddler rooms on Sunday mornings staffed with carefully screened and trained staff and volunteers.

Preschool - Kindergarten

Sundays at 9:30 and 11:00 am
Our Preschool-Kindergarten class helps children grow closer to Jesus as they begin to explore the word of the Lord. Our teachers demonstrate the love of God with activities and lessons through our age-specific curriculum.


1st – 4th Grade

Sundays at 9:30 and 11:00 am
Faith Kidz Worship is an interactive experience for your child. During the 9:30 service, children participate in small groups which use a fun, age-specific curriculum. During the 11:00 service, children come together in the Community Room to participate in Children’s Church, where they deepen their relationship with Jesus through prayer, worship and learning Biblical truths.


5th – 6th Grade

Sundays at 9:30 and 11:00 am
Our 5th and 6th graders use an age-specific two-year curriculum that takes them through the Old and New Testaments. 


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Our Sunday morning worship typically lasts about one hour, so the 9:30 services finish at 10:30 and the 11:00 services finish at 12:00 noon.

You will want to arrive a few minutes early to feel prepared to worship. If you'd like a cup of coffee or tea, plan some time to visit the coffee bar. If you have children, plan to come about 15 minutes before the service to get the kids settled in Sunday School. 

Come dressed comfortably. Some people wear jeans and t-shirts. Others wear dresses and suits. We are more concerned that you come as you are rather than if you look your “Sunday Best.”

After you’re greeted at the main entrance, you’ll find our Contemporary Worship venue (Christian Living Center) off the right side of the main lobby. For our Traditional Worship venue (Sanctuary), take the first hallway on your left off the main lobby and the Sanctuary will be on your left. If you are unsure where to go, stop by our Information Center and someone will help you.

You are never obligated to give. If you are new to Faith Community, please enjoy the music and let the basket pass unless you would like to give. We hope that as people get involved with our church, they are led to be generous in regularly giving. Click on our give page to learn about the different ways you can give.

On Sunday mornings, we offer nursery/toddler rooms as well as classrooms for children ages Pre-K - 6th grade. All rooms are staffed with carefully screened and trained volunteers.

If this is your first visit to Faith, you will need a few additional minutes to fill out some paperwork to help us get to know your child better. Or, you can fill out our registration forms online in advance:

We encourage our students (7th–12th grade) to worship on Sunday mornings with their families or friends. On Sunday evenings we offer Youth Sunday Nights from 5 - 7:00 p.m. with dinner, music, hanging out with friends, and a message from God's word.

Yes! United Methodists practice open communion, which means that all who want to partake in communion are welcome.
