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

Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, we have pulled back to online worship ONLY until further notice. We are doing this out of an abundance of caution. The safety of our church family, volunteers, and staff are of the highest priority right now. We look forward to seeing you online!

Live Stream worship this will begin each Sunday at 9:30 am and will be a blended service. Looking ahead, we will keep you updated as information becomes available regarding any changes to our worship plans. Stay safe and thank you for your understanding!

You can access our Sunday services each week through:

NOTE: We record our Live Stream worship, so if 9:30 isn't a convenient time, you can watch the 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 (see app section below for more details). 

FAITH KIDZ SUNDAY LESSONS

Children's Sunday School has shifted back to an online only format, with the lesson at 11:00 am on the Faith Kidz facebook pageThe 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.

Each Sunday we offer concurrent contemporary and traditional worship 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!

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.

The Contemporary service is held in our modern Christian Living Center.

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.
