What is Faith Connections?
Faith Connections is an hour on Sunday Mornings (9:45 am - 10:45 am) to make connections with your brothers and sisters in Christ.
Faith Connections is about:
- Growing in faith
- Welcoming newcomers and inviting them into conversation
- Discovering how God is at work in our lives.
Faith Connections Kicks Off for All Ages on September 10, 2017
Faith Connections is our Sunday morning learning time for all ages, from 9:45-10:45 a.m. Stay after the 8:30 a.m. worship service, or come before the 11:00 a.m. service, for Christian growth and learning. Faith Connections is an invitation to come and talk with your brothers and sisters in Christ, enjoy coffee and refreshments, and deepen your relationship with Jesus. The mission of Faith Connections is: Building and sustaining our faith community one relationship at a time.
We offer coffee and treats every week at 9:45 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Visit with your church family, welcome visitors, and enjoy catching up with each other. Then the learning groups begin. We encourage consistent attendance for all ages at Faith Connections, but if your schedule doesn’t allow that, all of the groups are open to you to attend whenever you are able. There is always an open seat for you!
We have an exciting new format for the ages of Faith Connections this year. The children’s class with Jeanne Coherd will now be open to preschool-aged children, together with a parent or caregiver. During Faith Connections Kids, Miss Jeanne will share Bible stories and help parents learn ways to continue the conversations about faith at home. If the preschoolers want to move to the Nursery at any time during the Faith Connections hour, the class is flexible. Parents or caregivers are more than welcome to shift over to the Nursery with their child. Miss Jeanne’s class will be held in the large double classroom. Preschoolers through 3rd graders are invited to take part in Faith Connections Kids.
A new group for 4th-12th graders will meet with Pastor Paige in Classroom across from the Nursery. These Faith Connections Youth will talk about life, school, friends, and the Bible, to learn how God is active in our lives. We’ll have fun meeting each week and getting to know each other as we listen for God speaking to us. The youth will also spend time together at various Youth & Family get-togethers throughout the year.
The Adult Bible Study will meet in the Fellowship Hall during Faith Connections. Pastor Eric, Pastor Gordon Simmons, and Chris Antonik will lead discussion on various topics related to the Bible, faith, and life throughout the year. We hope you will come for the Adult Bible Study so you can learn from your brothers and sisters in Christ and offer your stories to encourage others.
On the Sundays that we have ReCreation lunch and learning events, Faith Connections will not meet. There will be coffee and refreshments for members and visitors to enjoy between the worship services every Sunday. In order to gather as a whole church for ReCreation, we do not have Faith Connections on those days. Since ReCreation is designed for all ages of the congregation to eat lunch and learn together, we focus on worship and ReCreation on those Sundays. Please see the schedule of this year’s ReCreation events later in this Reporter.
