What the Heck?
Series: Advent
As Saul neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”  Saul asked, “Who are you, Lord?” He replied, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.” LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon with Pastor Joy Geldart "What the Heck?"

    Preventions
    Series: (All)
    We all experience challenges and obstacles in life, things preventing us from fully engaging in and enjoying abundant life. Even when it comes to the Gospel, the good news about the presence of God in our lives, we find ourselves prevented from experiencing all its blessings. Let us find encouragement in the story of Phillip and the Ethiopian eunuch, that no matter what prevents us from the experiencing the power of the Gospel...the power of the Holy Spirit, our capacity to respond, and the joy of a new life in God is far more powerful than any challenge, obstacle, or prevention we may face. LISTEN  to Sunday's Sermon: "Preventions"

    Stiff-Necked
    Series: (All)
    We don’t want to be stiff-necked. In pain. Unaware. Unchanging. We want to be what God wants us to be. Healed and whole. Experiencing his abundance. Being transformed into his likeness. Let us instead be grateful and positive, living fully in the moment, here and now. And let’s be willing and courageous to try something new. Knowing that when we are strong and flexible, following the Holy Spirit, we can, like Stephen, see the glory of God at work in our lives. LISTEN to Sunday's sermon "Stiff-Necked"
     
  • Nov 10, 2019Power or Piety
    Nov 10, 2019
    Power or Piety
    Series: (All)
    We are a people power and of piety. We can influence others for good. We can have reverence for God and can be devoted to God’s ways. And we are a people with faith. Expecting that God will do what we expect God will do. But if we truly want what God wants for us: life and life abundant, “perfect” health and wholeness beyond what we could ask or imagine, we must have a different type of faith. A faith that can make a life-long beggar to walk into God’s presence leaping and praising God. We must have a faith that is not our own, tied to our own expectations, but a faith that comes to us “through Jesus.” LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "Power and Piety"

    New Wine
    Series: (All)
    God wants to fill us and bring us together. Our unity is bound by love and by our sharing with one another. Like God’s presence, our love and unity, given to us by God, is not bound by time or space. Let us be grateful to God that we are filled with the Spirit and drawn together in love and purpose. LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "New Wine"

    Seeing Ain’t Believing
    Series: (All)
    God has been so good to us a Faith Church. And it is exciting to have a vision for positive growth and transformation, both inside and out. May we truly “believe” that God is at work among us. May we commit ourselves in attentiveness and faithfulness to this vision. And may we have our hearts changed in the process. LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "Seeing Ain't Believing"

    Unnecessary Spending
    Series: (All)
    When we read the story of the Anointing of Jesus across all four Gospels, the meaning of the story seems to evolve. What really happened? Why was it important? Is it about money and poverty? Is it about our stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination? Or is it about recognizing who Jesus really is? Maybe we can learn all of these lessons. And when we give God all that we are, like the woman/Mary did, we can be open to see and experience God becoming “all in all.” (Photo by Wayne Forte)
  • Oct 13, 2019Don’t Try This at Home
    Oct 13, 2019
    Don’t Try This at Home
    Series: (All)
    We grow through forgiveness. Through the work of the Spirit in our lives, we not only see, perceive, and come to know what is wrong, but also what is truly right. By the Spirit, when we are wronged by others, we can grow through forgiveness, through insight into our own lives, and by seeing, perceiving, and knowing that God at work within us. LISTEN to Sunday’s Sermon “Don’t Try This at Home”
  • Oct 6, 2019Its Hard to be Perfect
    Oct 6, 2019
    Its Hard to be Perfect
    Series: (All)
    The Gospel is good news about who we really are. Christ, the Creator of all, the source of life, is in us. We must sell, surrender, release all that we thought we were. Because it is no longer this “I” who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "It's Hard to be Perfect"

    The Job Description
    Series: (All)
    Jesus asks his disciples: Do you know who you are and where you are sent? Are you experiencing God’s presence and purpose in your life? Do you believe that you are sent into challenges and problems...so that God can work through you? Do you realize that not everyone will agree with the good news and not everyone will want to pay the price...but if you do, you will find your life in God?  LISTEN to "The Job Description"

    Heavenly Things
    Series: Pentecost
    At Faith Church we want to “grow” in our spiritual lives. The roots of our faith, our Congregational roots, encourages us to take seriously the journey that God sets before each one of us. Let us look forward to learning from the Spirit and learning from one another. Jesus told Nicodemus, and Jesus tells us today, that being born from above (born again) is a gift of God’s grace. And it’s an exciting starting point. Now, let’s embrace the spiritual journey that lies ahead, led by the wind of the Holy Spirit.

    Sep 15, 2019
    The Way of the Lord
    Series: Pentecost
    What is the Way of the Lord? Is it the way of learning and living out the will of God with our flesh and blood? Is it the way of being filled with the Holy Spirit, living not according to the flesh but the Spirit? Or is it the way of finding our true identity, being one with God, as the Father and the Son are one (John 17)? Wherever we are on our journey, may God meet us where we are and inspire us,  like John the Baptist, to grow closer to Him. LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "The Way of the Lord"
  • Sep 8, 2019Fulfilling the Scriptures
    Sep 8, 2019
    Fulfilling the Scriptures
    Series: Pentecost
    God has been speaking to people for a long time. And God continues to speak. As we listen and respond to God, let us not forget the Scriptures, a record of Divine experiences. Let us be encouraged as we  experience, like Joseph, the continuity of God’s grace and direction. And let us be open to insight and spiritual growth. LISTEN to Sunday's sermon "Fulfilling the Scriptures"
  • Sep 1, 2019Deliverance Belongs to the Lord
    Sep 1, 2019
    Deliverance Belongs to the Lord
    Series: Pentecost
    God is always giving us the opportunity to change, and God’s grace is always there. God is for us, and God’s promises always come to pass in time. Let’s be grateful that we play a part, but like Jonah, let’s remember that all this is in God’s hands. LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "Deliverance Belongs to the Lord"

    Aug 25, 2019
    May Your God Deliver You
    Series: Pentecost
    As we move more deeply into our Five-Year Vision, a vision to increase our capacity to be a place of Invitation and Spiritual Growth. Let us open our hearts to see the work of God in our own lives as well as in the lives of others. Let us be hopeful and encouraging like King Darius was with Daniel so that we can tell others, “May your God, whom you faithfully serve, deliver you!” LISTEN to Sunday's Sermon "May Your God Deliver You"

ABOUT US

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We can tell you more about our church with the help of seven phrases from Scripture and Tradition which express our commitments.
 
That they may all be one. [John 17:21]
This motto reflects the spirit of unity on which it is based and points toward future efforts to heal the divisions in the body of Christ. We are a uniting church as well as a united church.
 
In essentials unity, in non-essentials diversity, in all things charity.
The unity that we seek requires neither an uncritical acceptance of any point of view, nor rigid formulation of doctrine. It does require mutual understanding and agreement as to which aspects of the Christian faith and life are essential.
 
The unity of the church is not of its own making.
It is a gift of God. But expressions of that unity are as diverse as there are individuals. The common thread that runs through all is love.
 
Testimonies of faith rather than tests of faith.
Because faith can be expressed in many different ways, we have no formula that is a test of faith. Down through the centuries, however, Christians have shared their faith with one another through creeds, confessions, catechisms and other statements of faith. Historic statements are valued in our church as authentic testimonies of faith.
 
There is yet more light and truth to break forth from God’s holy word.
This affirmation by one of the founders of the Congregational tradition assumes the primacy of the Bible as a source for understanding the Good News and as a foundation for all statements of faith. It recognizes that the Bible, though written in specific historical times and places, still speaks to us in our present condition. It declares that the study of the scriptures is not limited by past interpretations, but it is pursued with the expectation of new insights and God’s help for living today.
 
The Priesthood of All Believers.
All members of the church are called to minister to others and to participate as equals in the common worship of God, each with direct access to the mercies of God through personal prayer and devotion. Recognition is given to those among us who have received special training in pastoral, priestly, educational and administrative functions, but these persons are regarded as servants—rather than as persons in authority. Their task is to guide, to instruct, to enable the ministry of all Christians rather than to do the work of ministry for us.
 
Responsible Freedom.
As individual members of the Body of Christ, we are free to believe and act in accordance with our perception of God’s will for our lives. But we are called to live in a loving, covenantal relationship with one another—gathering in communities of faith, congregations of believers, local churches.
