2023 BUDGET APPROVED - During our congregational meeting on 12/4, official members of Faith Church unanimously approved the 2023 budget proposal. While the budget represents a step of faith and it will require all of us to pull together in our generous giving to meet the budget, we also know that we are in God's good hands and He is faithful. Please continue to be in prayer, asking God for clear guidance and provision for the ministry of Faith Church.

Food boxes will be delivered on Christmas Eve morning. If you would like to help pack food boxes, please join us on Christmas Eve morning, 6:00 am at Polk County Fairgrounds. If you or someone you know could use some extra food this year, please sign up here or ask the church office for more information.
