Who we are: Faith UMC is a growing mid-sized church located on the corner of Fruitville Pike and Koser Road (the entrance is on Koser Road). Sunday Services include a blend of contemporary worship songs and traditional hymns--and engaging, practical, Bible-based sermons. There is a Children's Time message each week in the service after which kids are invited to Junior Church. We also have a new Kid's Choir who share music during this service about once a month! We are an active church with many different opportunities to get involved--fellowship events, Bible Studies for all ages, and many ways to serve within the church and community. Faith UMC provides an intimate atmosphere where you can know people and be known. If you are looking for a church that is vibrant and excited about living out their faith, then Faith UMC may be the place for you.
