“With Us”

Many of the Christian songs you hear through the Christmas season talk about Jesus being Emmanuel, God with us. Thankfully, that reality goes far beyond just the Christmas season. In this message series we will talk about and celebrate the fact that we really can experience Emmanuel every single day.

“True or False”

We live in a world where it is increasingly difficult to distinguish truth from falsehood. Deception, both subtle and obvious, comes at us from multiple directions and sources. In this series, we’ll consider some common philosophies and agendas present in our world and in the Church. As we do that, we’ll seek to answer the necessary question—Is it true, or false?

“Our Missionary God”

March is Missions Emphasis month at Faith. Why should work of evangelism and discipleship at home and around the world be so important to us? Why should every true child of God have a heart for missions? The simple answer is: because our God has always been a missionary God.

“What God Treasures”

In Matthew 6:21, Jesus said: "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Our theme for 2019 for is “Treasuring What God Treasures.” What better way to align our hearts with the Lords than to take time to consider what he tells us he treasures? That’s exactly what Pastor Chris and our other pastoral staff members did during our series: “What God Treasures.”
