What about my kids?

Faith UMC is a kid-friendly place.  We have many young families and several grandparents with grandchildren.  Your children are always welcome in worship.  Children’s bulletins and crayons can be found in the back of the sanctuary.

Nursery care is available for very young kids during both services and Sunday school.  The “Mother’s Room” is available with TV’s screening the service, rocking chairs, and changing tables for those who may need to take their babies out of the service.  During the 10:45 service, children pre-K through 6th grade are invited to “Breakout,” a children’s time of worship and learning.  Learn more here.

What about my teens?

During the 10:45 service, many of the youth like to sit together in the front right section of the sanctuary.  Teens should feel free to sit with them and start making connections! Learn more here.

What else happens on Sunday?

Between worship services, there is Sunday School for all ages.  Please feel free to visit or join any class! Find adult classes here.

Join us after the 8:30 service for a time of coffee and fellowship through Hebrews Coffee (located in the fellowship hall immediately across from the sanctuary).

What should I wear?

We hope that you will feel welcome joining us in whatever clothing makes you comfortable.  On the whole, Faith UMC is relatively casual.  Few wear suits or dresses.  During the 8:30 service, many will be dressed in business casual.  During the 10:45 service, people will wear anything from jeans and shorts to business casual.
