FALL PASTOR'S STUDY


Wednesday's Beginning September 12th

9:45 am and 6:30 pm


Our Wednesday AM/ PM Pastor's Study this Fall will be led by Pastor Ross on the book Everybody, Always- Becoming Love in a World Full of Setbacks and Difficult People by Bob Goff. This study will help reveal what it means to love without inhibition, insecurity, or restriction. From finding the right friends to discovering the upside of failure, Everybody, Always points the way to embodying love by doing the unexpected, the intimidating, the seemingly impossible.


The class registration fee is $5 per person and the book is available for $11 through Faith UMC if purchased before August 31st.

  • Worship

    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 8:15 & 10:30 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 10:30 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

    Adult Choir

    All Year  | Tues 7-9 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. The choir strives for excellence in all they do, both at church and in their own personal walks of life, making up this a magnificent group of Christians who love to sing. 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 9am 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 9:00pm in the Sanctuary and during the summer months of June and July from 7-8. Rehearsals on Sunday start at 8:15 in the sanctuary. Please come and be part of something great happening here at Faith.


    Hand Bells

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

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

    Under the direction of Stephanie Clark, the hand bell 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. The handbell choir is blessed to have a four-octave set of Schulmerich English Handbells and a 3 octave set of Handchimes. 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 rehearses at 7pm. We look forward to seeing you!


    Festival Choir

    Adult & Youth | Aug.-May | Tues 7-8pm

    For those who love to sing but may not be able to make the Sunday commitment, the Festival Choir sings for Music Sunday during the Advent/Christmas Season, Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter, accompanied by chamber and full orchestras. The music sung will range anywhere from the artistic compositions of Joseph Martin, the Rutter Requiem, to the classics such as the Dubois Seven Last Words. Any and all interested singers are invited...just show up and sing!  


    Faith Band

    The Faith Band performs during the 10:30am service.  Rehearsals are Thursday evenings from 7-8:30pm 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@faithumc.org 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!

  • Solo Spirits Singles Ministry

    The Faith Solo Spirits is a caring and supportive community outreach 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.

    If you or someone you know would benefit from receiving a shawl please contact Linda O'Donnell at 281.341.8200.

    If you would like to join us in making shawls, please contact: Sharon Bryan at bryan_galveston@hotmail.com.
