FAITH VISITOR’S WELCOME
Welcome to the Faith Family! The people of the Faith United Methodist Church are a part of Christ’s church universal. We believe that all people are persons of sacred worth, regardless of race, color, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, or economic condition; and we welcome everyone to attend our church, receive Holy Communion, be baptized and admitted into membership. The heart of our Christian faith is Christ’s ministry of outreaching love. We are called to minister wherever Christ would have us work to heal and free others through the revelation of His work of salvation on the cross. We believe in God’s grace, which means the unearned and loving action of God in our daily lives. In spite of suffering violence and evil in the world, we assert that God’s grace exists everywhere. Despite any circumstances, we remain creatures brought to life by a just and loving God. We believe the reign of God is both a present and a future reality. Because of these beliefs we remain committed to the struggle for peace and justice for all people and work for a world where people are judged by the content of their character and not any other measure of the human condition.
We invite you to our Morning Worship – Sundays at 11am & Bible Study – Wednesdays at 7pm.In Christ’s Service, Pastor Charles M. Straight
