Here's What's Happening This Week at Faith UMC
Called Church Conference: We have received a letter from our District Superintendent authorizing us to hold a Called Church Conference on Sunday, December 5 at 10:00 AM for the purpose of voting on our proposed Youth Building. Great work has been done by those who have given leadership to this and we are ready to move forward! The meeting will happen in the Sanctuary in-between services on December 5. Everyone is invited to attend. Voting members are those who are members of Faith UMC.
Join us for this special vote as we look to gift our youth for years to come!

Sundays at 10 am During Connection Time
Does your knowledge of the Old Testament feel like a grab bag of people, books, events and ideas? How many times have you resolved to really understand the OT? To finally make sense of it? In The Epic of Eden Video Study, Dr. Sandra Richter clearly and powerfully communicates a history of God’s redeeming grace, weaving together a story that runs from the Eden of the Garden to the garden of the New Jerusalem.
Through text and video teaching, Dr. Richter uses this 12-week study to bring a new dimension to the history of the ancient Near East, orienting any study group in time, geography, culture, redemption, and relevance to today — all without diminishing her reader’s faith or dumbing down the scripture.
Next Meeting November 21 in the Community Room
12:15 pm After Church
Do you have a heart for caring for others?
