Children & Family

All the chisels I've dulled carving idols of stone

That have crumbled like sand 'neath the waves.

I've recklessly built all my dreams in the sand

Just to watch them all wash away.

Through another day, another trial, another chance

To reconcile to one who sees past all I see.

And reaching out my weary hand I pray that you'd understand

You're the only one who's faithful to me.

(from Faith to be Faithful to Me by Jennifer Knapp)

At Faith, we seek to embrace ALL of what it means to be a family.

It can be messy, exhausting and hard.  But you already know that.

Faith is blessed with a membership that spans all ages and stages.  That means that wisdom dwells in our experiences - experiences that have been sustained by learning about how God loves us so, how Jesus sets a path for us, and how the Holy Spirit swirls around all that we do in every moment and stage of life. 

 

Join us to see how we might share life with you and help your family grow in faith.  We have Sunday School for children and are building opportunities for service, fun, fellowship and learning among our many families.  One size does not fit all.  We seek to be a place where each family finds a unique place in the life of the church.

Christmas Eve Family Friendly Service

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 24TH

We invite you and your family to join us for a meaningful worship service.  There will be two services on Friday: a family friendly worship at 4 p.m. and a traditional worship at 8 p.m. preceded by a Festival Prelude of Traditional Music at 7:30 p.m. 

As part of  this season’s liturgy,   “In God’s house, there is HOPE— For God loves us too much to leave us just as we are. In God’s house, there is PEACE—for all that separates us from God falls away. In God’s house there is JOY—because God created music, and coffee, and dance floors, and laughter that is contagious, and endless rounds of peek-a-boos with babies; and if those things have God’s fingerprints, then God’s house surely exudes joy.  In God’s house there is LOVE—Because God is love, from start to finish, and that love exists for us all.”

Faith 5

In your Church in a Box, you will find the Faith5 card (image).  Watch the video to see the Faith5 in action with Pastor Laura.

 

Don’t worry about having a perfect conversation or knowing answers to the questions that come up.  Part of the work we are doing is giving voice to our big questions! Questions help us all to learn.
