Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care is Christian love in action by clergy and laity. It is an expression of God’s love for people. The goal of our Pastoral Care is caring, consolation and compassion in order to meet the needs of God’s people (members and non-members). This is done by assisting them in the process of healing (physically, mentally and spiritually) as they journey into wholeness through a relationship with Christ, the power of the Holy Spirit, fellowship with others, light counseling and a commitment to growth.

Pastoral Visit: Hospital, Assistant Living Home, Nursing Home, House, School, Work Place

Pastoral Counseling: Marriage Counseling, Spiritual Counseling, Mental Health Issues

Family Care: Parenting, Relationships, School, Elderly Parents

Contact Pastor Charles or the church office for more information.



Christian fellowship helps us to focus on Christ and His desires and goals for us. As iron sharpens iron, in true Christian fellowship Christians sharpen one another’s faith and stir one another to exercise that faith in love and good works, all to God’s glory.

Senior Fellowship Luncheon: Second Thursdays at 11:30 am at a local restaurant. Contact Bonnie Gentille or the church office for more information.

J.O.Y. Fellowship: Third Thursdays at 1:00 pm in the library. Contact Bonnie Gentille or the church office for more information.

Coffee with Pastor: TBD (quarterly) or by appointment


Hospitality Ministry

The Hospitality Ministry serves Faith Church with a focus on making certain that all who enter our church building feel the love of Christ and the welcome of our congregation.

Ushers: Ushers make worshippers feel welcome in order to find Christian community and then experience God’s presence in worship. This welcoming team assists people into the worship service by distributing bulletins, seating worshippers, keeping track of attendance and taking the collection. For more information, contact the church office or Don Hayward.

Welcome Center: This ministry serves at the Welcome Center before and after worship services.

Fellowship Meal: After the worship service, everyone is invited to the Fellowship Hall for lunch as we continue to share our faith and life and connect to one another in Christ.
