Children

At Faith Community, we want children to know learn how much God loves them and how to have a personal relationship with Christ. We provide an environment that is inviting and age appropriate, allowing kids to have fun while learning more about God. 


Worship Service

  • Available for potty-trained children up through age 8, Kids' Own Worship provides play, worship through song and prayer, and a Bible lesson with an activity to reinforce what we've learned.
  • A safe and loving nursery for infants and toddlers is available both during the worship service and class hour. 
  • Children are always welcome to remain in the service with their families. 

At this time, all children are asked to worship with their families in the sanctuary. The lobby is a great place to give squirmy little ones a place to move around while still being able to hear and view the service. The nursery will not be staffed, but will be available as a quiet place for nursing moms and diaper changes.


Sunday Classes

Available from September through May, we have classes for all ages following worship service. 

  • Our elementary students are currently using The Praise Factory, which demonstrates the consistency of God’s Word from beginning to end. Key biblical truths are shared through story-telling that draws from Old and New Testament passages, as well as other historical sources and more contemporary church or missionary accounts. Games and activities reinforce both the story and scripture verses. 
  • Built Right in Christ’s Kingdom (BRICK) digs even deeper into God’s Word, as well as a number of supplementary resources, to give middle school students a strong foundation for their faith. Students progress through an in-depth chronological study of the Bible, church history, and missions, all while gaining tools to defend and apply their faith with kindness and compassion in an unbelieving world. 

  • For those children that are worshipping from home at this time, a Zoom with Ms. Jenna is available every Sunday at 11:00 am. Visit our Children & Youth groups page to access the link.


"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it." --Proverbs 22:6

Youth

Our prayer is that the youth at Faith Community would grow as followers of Jesus and learn to be in genuine community with others. To be a follower of Jesus simply means daily trying to live more and more like Him. We believe this happens best in community, where we can encourage each other in humility, love, and service.


What's Going On

  • Sunday youth classes are currently meeting online each Sunday at 11:15 am. We discuss topics that are relevant to maturing as a Christian, such as basic Christian beliefs, flourishing as a Christian in college, spiritual formation, and others. 
  • Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers each have the opportunity to meet twice a month for a small group Bible study.
  • Visit our Children & Youth groups page for more information about these opportunities.


Adult Classes

One class for adults is currently being offered following worship service for the fall quarter. Pastor Eric is also available during this time to answer questions about our church, faith groups, becoming a member, or to discuss the sermon.


Fall Quarter Classes (In Person or join in on Facebook Live! Sunday mornings at 11:15am)

1 Corinthians

Leader: Collin Brendemuehl

Description:

Paul's letter to the church in Corinth is one of the most relevant portions of Scripture to the American life. Why? Because the church in Corinth is the church in a wealthy cosmopolitan city where morality has its price. Their issues are our issues. Please join us to study and apply this portion of God's Word and to build moral virtue. We will use a good study guide that's edited by J.I. Packer to provide additional background information and insightful questions. 

If you are able to assist with our material expenses by purchasing the book for this class, please place $7 in a donation envelope, write "Adult Equipping Classes" on the envelope and place it in the offering box at the back of the sanctuary.



PLEASE NOTE: Readings for classes will include passages from the Bible. If you do not have a good study Bible of your own, please let us know and we will help you get one.
