Fellowship

 

Tradewinds

Calling themselves “Active Seniors,” this group meets four times a year: Spring, Summer, Fall, and usually at Christmas.   Activities include luncheons, dinners, and trips.

Castaways

A mixed group of singles and couples with adult children (as well as some without kids) meets on the third Saturday of every month. Events are varied and are held at the church, in a home, or out and about.

Windjammers

This fun group of folks with teen and college-age kids (as well as some without kids) meets monthly to enjoy a wide variety of activities, including backyard parties, Bunko games, theatre outings, and more.

Please contact the church office at 916-428-3439 to inquire about participation in Tradewinds, Castaways, or Windjammers activities.

Presbyterian Women

On the 4th Wednesday of the month, women of Faith meet at the church at 10 a.m. for Bible Study, followed by lunch, fellowship, and a message from a guest speaker. Presbyterian Women (PW for short!) are also involved with mission projects, from global organizations like World Vision to local projects like WEAVE. All women in the congregation are invited to attend.

Life Groups

Life Groups are small groups of people committed to meeting regularly to grow together in their Christian faith. A typical Life Group meeting includes Bible study (based on the Sunday morning sermon), fellowship, and prayer.  Put simply, it is a time for friends to share their lives and support each other in applying God’s Word to their daily lives.   Check the Current Life Groups schedule for days and times. Interested in joining a Life Group? Contact the church office at 428-3439 or Adult Education Elder Walter Newport at  wnewport3@yahoo.com. Download A Bit About Life Groups to read what our leaders and participants have to say about their Life Groups.

Crafter’s Club

Meets each Monday at Faith Church from 1 to 3 p.m. Bring your craft project and enjoy the lively conversation.

Book Club

Meets the third Monday of the month at 7 p.m. from September through May in participant’s homes. This group is open to women of all ages, who take turns as discussion leaders, home hostesses, and snack providers. Books read during the year are chosen by the group in May. For information, contact Ilah Turner at 428-8716.

Supper Club

Sign up at the Welcome Center to participate one Sunday a month March through June. You’ll take turns hosting and providing a main dish, side dish, and a dessert as you get together with a small group of Faith folks. This is a great way to meet folks from the church outside the church.

Fall All Church Harvest Dinner

Each year in October the Faith community gathers for an early evening of food and fellowship with a BBQ outside on the church grounds. We hold a silent auction and raffle to raise money that will provide camperships for those who need financial assistance to participate in Church retreats, Westminster Woods, or similiar activities.

Faith Family Ministry

We strongly believe that parents are the most influential people in kids’ lives and are the primary spiritual leaders for their children. Faith formation most effectively takes place at home, lived out in everyday life. Family Ministry desires to partner with parents to pass on lived faith to children that they might know and love Jesus Christ. We seek to equip parents to: Guide, Encourage, and Train (G.E.T.). Family ministry at faith centers around three things:

1. Family Home Groups – Groups of families committed to meet monthly and focus on fellowship for the whole family. The intent is to gather families engaged in a similar season of life, and build authentic and deep community with Christ as the foundation.

2. G.E.T. Faith@Home Training Events – are focused on equipping families to take on spiritual leadership. Each event is focused on a particular subject, such as family finances, sex & spirituality, loving others through service as a family, etc.

3. All Church family Gatherings – focused on spending time together as a church family. The simple goal is to connect with one another and enjoy each other.
