    This Wednesday evening study of The Epic of Eden, by Dr. Sandra Richter clearly and powerfully communicates the history of God’s redeeming grace. This in-depth12-week study brings a new dimension to the history of the ancient Near East, orienting participants in time, geography, culture, redemption, and relevance to today — all without diminishing the reader’s faith or dumbing down the scripture. Join leaders, Lee Evans and Ross Talbert, as they complete daily exploration of how Old Testament understanding leads to fresh depths of New Testament faith for everyday life in the real world.

    What is the deep cry of your heart? The ache in your soul just waiting to be fulfilled? The prayer you keep repeating without end? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it. Join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John, ultimately trading feelings of emptiness and depletion for the fullness of knowing who Jesus is in this in-depth Bible study.

ADULT SERVICE

  • WORSHIP MINISTRY

    Communion Attendants

    Help with preparing, distributing, and cleaning up the elements for our worship services.  Communion is offered the first Sunday of every month at the 9 am and weekly at the 11 am services.


    Scripture Readers

    We delight in having congregation members come forward to read aloud a Responsive Psalter reading during our 9:00 am Traditional service.  Readers are always given the scripture in advance and we welcome any and all who wish to help with this special time in service.


    Ushers

    Ushers are present at the 9:00 and 11:00 am services and have the important duty of welcoming all to our worship space.  They also pass out bulletins, pick up registration booklets, help attendees find seating and perform offertory duties.


    Altar Attendants

    Since the worship space is a place where people assemble to encounter Christ, our altar attendants prepare the worship space for service and decorate seasonally throughout the year.


    Altar Flowers

    Help is always welcome as flowers are sold in the Gathering Area in the weeks leading up to Christmas and Easter to help adorn the worship center.


    Tech Crew

    It takes a great team each Sunday to run our slides and assist with sound and videography.  We welcome anyone who may be interested in helping us!  No experience is necessary; we will train you.  Please email Cindy.Wenz@faithumc.org if you would like to join us!

  • MUSIC MINISTRY

    Chancel Choir

    Adult | All Year  | Tues 7:00-9:00 pm

    The Choir at Faith is made up of people from all walks of life that have a heart for worship and making glorious music to God.  It is NOT necessary to be classically trained to sing, or even know how to read music…just show up and we will teach you!


    Under the direction of Todd King, the choir sings each Sunday at the 9:00 am Traditional Worship Service and for special services during Advent, Christmas, Lent, Holy Week & Easter, and July 4th. The choir meets each Tuesday evening from 7:00 to 9:00 pm in the Sanctuary and takes rehearsals off during the month of July, while continuing to sing in the loft on Sundays.  If you love to sing, please come and be part of something great happening here at Faith!


    Handbells

    Adult & Youth | Sept-May | Tues 6:00-7:00 pm

    The Bells of Faith serve to help enhance our worship experiences. We rehearse in the Sanctuary and perform regularly throughout the church year in the 9:00 am Traditional Service as well as on special occasions such as Christmas, Easter, and July 4th. The handbell choir does not rehearse during the months of June, July, or August.


    Under the direction of Christina King, the handbell choir is comprised of members from the Adult Choir, and members of the congregation, but all have a passion for making beautiful music unto the glory of God.  We welcome anyone interested to join us for rehearsal, though advanced music reading skill is preferred. Please feel free to stay and join the choir rehearsal which begins at 7:00 pm. We look forward to seeing you!


    Faith Band

    The Faith Band performs during the 11:00 am service.  Rehearsals are Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:30 pm in the Worship Center.  All participants must have a basic mastery of their primary instrument and are welcome to join our rehearsals at any time in order to work towards joining us on Sunday mornings.  Please contact Patrick Brown for more information.


    A/V Tech Crew for all services

    Singing not your thing?  We always need volunteer help on a weekly basis to run our slides and assist with sound and video.  Please email Cindy Wenz if you would like to join us!

  • WOMEN'S MINISTRY

    Women of Faith is a ministry of Faith UMC led by a group of diverse, dynamic women who are committed to connecting with women of Faith UMC and the community to provide opportunities for Study, Service and Fellowship.  The vision for our group is to create a sacred place for women to belong, believe and be a blessing. We aspire to help foster genuine relationships through Christian Fellowship and to grow in Discipleship through prayer, study and service.


    We invite all women to participate in the many opportunities we offer. Please watch your bulletin and our Facebook group for announcements and updates for upcoming events such as:

  • SOLO SPIRITS Singles Ministry

    Faith's Solo Spirits is a caring and supportive community outreach group providing the opportunity for Christian growth, fellowship, and service, while affirming that all single adults are whole individuals and important members of God's Holy Family.  We are integrated into all ministries of the church, rather than simply being relegated only to a "Singles Ministry."  We connect to God, to others, and to the community around us by serving in Outreach, Men's, Women's, Children's, Youth, Music, Fine Arts, and every other ministry of the church. We welcome and value singles--whether you've never been married, or you are separated, divorced, or widowed. We hope that you can connect with the Solo Spirits and we look forward to making you a new friend.

  • THREADS OF HOPE

    Threads of Hope is a mission outreach of Faith United Methodist Church, dedicated to being the heart and hands of Jesus to those in need.


    We welcome anyone wishing to join this ministry where we work, play, pray and fellowship together. There is a niche for everyone considering the variety of handmade items that require sewing, surging, knitting, crocheting, tying, washing and ironing, cutting and stuffing. Prior experience is not required as members are always available to assist new members and with new projects. All supplies and kits are provided, however, if you sew, you are encouraged to bring your personal portable sewing machine. 


    Some of our current mission efforts are dresses for little girls in Africa, baby blankets, tote bags and bibs, fleece prayer blankets, pillowcases, knitted and crocheted prayer shawls, heart-shaped pillows, walker bags, clothing protectors, and pocket prayer quilts. These items are distributed on an as-needed basis to various individuals, community and international outreach organizations, long-term care facilities, hospitals, etc. – wherever there is a need.


    Threads of Hope currently meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month from 9:30 a.m. until Noon in room 157 of the Annex, dependent upon possible scheduling conflicts. For additional information or questions please contact Sandra Jentzen.  


    Neither attendance nor membership at Faith UMC is required to participate.

  • PRAYER SHAWLS

    The making of a prayer shawl is a spiritual practice which embodies thoughts and prayers for the receiver. It is a gift freely given with no strings attached. Made in prayer, as prayer, for prayer. Prayer Shawls are given for many life events from joy to great sorrow.
