Weekly Update! 5/19
THIS SUNDAY AT 10:15 AM - Join us for our current teaching series, "Ruth." The Bible's book of Ruth is a true story for the ages, a masterpiece of narrative art, that reveals God's faithfulness in the midst of faithlessness, His kindness to us through the kindness of others, and His sovereignty in bringing about the rescue of His people. When you check in on the church center app, be sure to select "in person" or "online", depending on where you are joining us from.
CONGREGATIONAL MEETING NEXT SUNDAY, MAY 29TH - After the morning worship gathering on May 29th, there will be a congregational meeting in which official members of Faith Church are encouraged to attend. This meeting will provide new information from our Elders as well as a proposed by-law change.
