Coming Events
2014 Vacation Bible School Weird Animals: Where Jesus' Love is One-of-a-Kind
June 16-20, 2014

When Weird Animals visit Faith, kids learn that Jesus' love is one-of-a-kind! We hope you will consider joining us for this year's VBS by serving as a preschool teacher or elementary crew leader. Not sure that's a fit for you? We also need leaders for the following rotations: Imagination Station, Untamed Games, and One-of-a-Kind Bible Adventures. Willing volunteers should contact Ashley Whitfield, 814-2121, today to find your place to serve.

VBS is full.  Please call the church office to put your child on the wait list. VBS is for children who are 3 years old by January 1, 2014, through current 4th graders. Fellowship Presbyterian Church is doing the same VBS July 7-11, so feel free to contact them about VBS if your child was not able to get into VBS at Faith.


Pastors Series. Wednesdays, 6 p.m., in the Parlor
  April 23: The children of Faith will present the musical Big Fish!. A whale of a tale! Or, rather, the tail of a whale! The story of Jonah and the whale is uniquely told through a "film-noir" style, like an old-fashioned detective movie. Kids and adults alike will find both humor and truth in this creative musical.
  April 30: Tom Borland will continue the series on Community and Growth by Jean Vanier.

Good Friday Service, April 18. Musical service at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary. The Chancel Choir will present In My Place (by Craig Courtney), a poignant musical journey following Christ to the cross. It is a compelling reminder of the sacrifice that Jesus willingly made as He gave His life for each of us. Craig Courtney's masterful compositions and Pamela Stewart's inspired narrative will facilitate a memorable and meaningful worship experience. The music is a distinctive blend of original melodies and creative hymn settings. The narrative focuses on the observations of five first-hand witnesses to Christ's final hours: Judas, Peter, the thief on the cross, the Roman centurion, and a crowd member who called for Christ's death. The work will be accompanied by strings, winds, and piano. Nursery available.
