Children's Sunday School

Preschool and Elementary classes- Using the Gospel Story Bible curriculum, children learn the Bible is one continuous story pointing to Jesus as the Redeemer. Children learn lessons from Genesis to Revelation in lessons appropriate to their age and developmental level.

Middle School SS

Middle school classes- Using curriculum from Great Commission Publications, students continue their study of the Bible focusing on God’s covenant grace and his promises throughout the entire Bible.

High School SS

Senior high classes- Senior high students study a variety of topics using Bible studies prepared by Great Commission Publications. They discover Scripture has answers to life’s difficult questions. Topics may include knowing God, worship, sin, worldview, and life’s purpose. In addition students also study the Westminster Shorter Catechism.

Women

Women’s ministry operates under the supervision of the Session and in keeping with the Church’s vision to grow in love for Christ and each other. Our goal is to encourage and equip every woman in the church to know Christ personally and be committed to extending His Kingdom in her life, home, church, community, and throughout the world. In a nutshell, we want to encourage every woman to THINK BIBLICALLY and LIVE COVENANTALLY.

If you would like more information about our activities, please contact the church office.

What does this look like?

  • Women living covenantally in their relationships with Christ, their families, their churches, and their culture.
    Women exemplifying their helper design and life-giving mission (Genesis 1-3).
  • Women fulfilling their personal and corporate privileges and responsibilities of citizenship in God’s kingdom.
  • Women developing life-giving ministries that flow out of and support the church’s biblical, doctrinal standards and vision.
  • Women discipling women to fulfill the Lord’s requirement to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with their God (Micah 6:8).
  • Women imparting a legacy of biblical womanhood to the next generation (Titus 2).

What is our charge?

The Women of Faith Church will honor Christ by promoting the welfare, vision, and values of our Session. Thoroughly committed to one another, we will glorify God by becoming faithful worshippers (connecting to God), firmly grounded in faith (connected to the Word), passionately deployed in service (connecting to ministry), and influential believers in the world (connecting to outreach).

Women's Bible Study

“What’s SHE Doing Here? The Messy Women in Jesus’s Genealogy”
The study is written by Susan Tyner
1st Saturday 9:00 am at Faith church.
The Gospel of Matthew begins with Jesus’s family tree, an unusual one not only because it includes women, but messy women: Tamar, who tricked her father-in-law to impregnate her; Rahab, the Jericho prostitute who betrayed her countrymen; Ruth, the widowed Moabitess turned beggar; and Bathsheba, listed only by her murdered husband’s name. Then there was Mary. Although we know of her innocence and submission to God, those around her questioned her purity and the legitimacy of the Child she bore.  We will be studying how God wove the messy stories of these five women together into His Big Story of salvation. And learn how He continues to redeem His children—one messy story at a time.
 
Book of James Bible Study – Meets weekly on Tuesday evenings- All women are welcome to this small group, though it is specifically designed to meet the needs and schedules of busy moms and young professionals. Meets weekly at the home of Anna Newman (6:30-8:00 pm).  A Jen Wilkin format will be used to study the book of James.

Small Groups

Here at Faith Church, small groups are an integral part of our discipleship ministries, working with the support and guidance of the Session through the Committee on Discipleship Ministries (CDM). Our vision for small groups is to have a congregation characterized by deep, lasting, spiritual friendships that result in members growing more Christlike in spiritual disciplines, character, ministry, relationships, and outreach to non-believers (Eph. 4:15-16). We aim to build our small groups around four key elements:

  • Bringing Him the glory (mission-oriented) (Eph. 3:20-21)
  • Rooted in His Word (Scripture-driven) (2 Tim. 3:16-17)
  • Focused on growing God’s Kingdom (kingdom-focused) (Ps. 103:19)
  • Shaping His new leaders (multiplication mindset) (2 Tim. 2:2)


Given these key elements and the discipleship goals at Faith, our small groups can and do come in all shapes and sizes:

  • Group A may be a mixed group of men, women, and families, enjoying fellowship over a meal one week and doing a study the following week
  • Group B may be only women, meeting weekly to read through a book of the Bible and encourage one another through prayer
  • Group C may be only men that meet weekly to pray for each other
  • Group D may be a mixed group of men and women meeting weekly to fellowship and discuss applying the previous week’s sermon


If these things intrigue you, or you are interested in our current small group offerings, please reach out to one of Faith Church’s elders, deacons, or CDM members who can answer your questions and guide you in making connections with our church family.
