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

The 9:30 and 11:00 worship services will be held in our Christian Living Center (CLC) where there is more space for social distancing. Attendees have the option to bring their own lawn chairs, but we will also have chairs available. Masks are required. If parents bring their children into the CLC to enjoy worship together, they can pick up special worship bags for their kids. Each bag will have crayons, coloring/activity pages, and a special treat.

9:30 AM WORSHIP DETAILS

  • Worship Service - This service will include live (YES … with real people!) portions up on the stage or platform of the CLC, including the welcome, announcements, prayer and sermon. A mix of traditional and contemporary music will be pre-recorded and broadcast on the CLC screens as part of the service. 
  • Faith Kidz Sunday School - Preschool through 6th-grade classes will be meeting in person for a new series called "Empowering Courageous Faith Kidz." 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 at 9:30 will be asked to wear a mask, wash hands, and have their temperature checked upon arrival. 
  • Nursery - The nursery will be open at the 9:30 hour for parents to use if needed, however nursery or toddler classes will not be available at this time.

11:00 AM WORSHIP DETAILS

  • Worship Service - This in-person worship service in the CLC will be a rebroadcast (on the screens) of the 9:30 service. Note: We will monitor attendance, and as it increases, we will make the 11:00 am service live as well. 
  • Faith Kidz Lessons on Facebook - 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.

ONLINE WORSHIP

In addition to our in-person worship on Sundays, we will continue to offer our live, online worship service at 9:30 am that includes music, message, and prayer.  You can access the full Sunday service through one of the links below.

NOTE: We record our Live Stream worship, so if 9:30 isn't a convenient time, you can watch the full service at a later time. 

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) just after the early worship service. If you have questions, please contact Lynne Martini.  

Our goal in this brief gathering is to:

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

Upcoming Next Connect Dates

SUNDAY WORSHIP
(after COVID restrictions are lifted)

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!


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.

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.
