Advent Worship Service

Sunday brings another great week of Advent celebration. This week we light the candle of joy!

Sunday school starts at 9 a.m. for kids and adults. Kids will take part in the Christmas program, and even if they are new or haven't been in church for a while, they can be part of it if they choose.

The message is Grace is Not a Blue-Eyed Blond.

Hymns include Hark, the Herald Angels Sing; He is Born; O Little Town of Bethlehem; There's a Song in the Air; O Come, All Ye Faithful; and Shepherds Watched their Flocks.

The church is still matching Harvest Festival donations (which go to the Salvation Army and Safe Harbor).

Advent Season Begins

Faith Church observed the First Sunday of Advent this week, with the lighting of a candle on the Advent wreath and a message about waiting.

This coming Sunday, a Potluck is happening in the fellowship hall after the service. Everyone is welcome.

Sunday school for adults and kids will be at 9 a.m. and worship is at 10:30, with Lee, the bowling barista, serving coffee between services in the foyer.

(There is still time for kids to be part of the Christmas program. Come to Sunday school or church and talk to Donna Marmorstein.)

Take Care That You Don't Forget

Thanksgiving is nearly here, and this Sunday, gratitude and thankfulness abound.

It's harvest time at Faith Church this season, and that means opportunities to share the blessings God has given during the year with Safe Harbor and the Salvation Army. The church will match gifts throughout the season.

This week, the message is Take Care That You Don't Forget, and Pastor Jack will be in Deuteronomy 8.

Hymns include Come Ye Thankful People, Come; Now Thank We all our God; and Great is thy Faithfulness.

Tuesday, Faith Church hosts a special Thanksgiving service with North Highlands United Methodist Church at 7, with refreshments following.

Narcotics Anonymous meets Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., Thursday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 8 p.m.

Prayer group meets noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday.

The charge conference will be at North Highlands church this year, 7-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30.

View past services anytime

  If you missed a service in person (sad, because we have a blast together each week, but sometimes necessary) you can sometimes catch it online.
  You can watch it on your phone while waiting in line or at home while doing dishes, organizing files, or resting after a long day's work.
  Here is last week's service.
  To catch older services, you can go to our sermon archive.
  Not only do you get to see and hear Pastor Jack's great messages, but you also can view the worship band and other parts of the services.
  We have a few weeks of video recordings and older audio recordings. We are still working out a few bugs with the videos, but each week the recordings get a little better.
  Thanks for your patience!
