At FAITH, we take Jesus’ call to carry His compassion and hope to the world seriously. Jesus was so committed to caring for the poor, the broken, the lost and alone, the hopeless…and we are entirely convinced that He calls His Church to make that same commitment. We want to be people who seek the peace of our city, care for the hurting, and actively show that WE ARE FOR our community, our country, and our world. And we want you to join us.
Whether you grew up in church or this is your first experience checking one out, if you want to be a part of impacting our communities through service and compassion, then we have a place for you. Take a look at the on-going mission opportunities available and email to join one of our projects.

• Our garden ministry serves our FAITH community by beautifying our grounds, preventing water runoff that pollutes our streams. It also serves as an outdoor classroom for the CDC. The vegetable garden is an opportunity to plant, serve, and help grow fresh healthy produce for the Hands & Feet Ministry and the Salvation Army lunch prep ministry. This ministry will continue to expand as God directs. Opportunities to serve include hoeing, weeding, planting, and watering throughout the variety of gardens and the trail. To volunteer to help with the gardens, please email email@example.com.
• We also take part in local Project Clean Stream events, which involve cleaning up our community waterways and surrounding areas.
