Mission Statement: To make disciples of Jesus Christ by nurturing spiritual growth and providing avenues for service to others.

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.

Response to the COVID-19 Corona Virus Pandemic: We are moving all Worship Services, Bible Studies and most meetings online until it is safe to meet again in person
At Faith UMC we care deeply about our church family and our neighbors. We want all of you to stay healthy and safe. Therefore, we have suspended all gatherings and have moved Worship Services, Bible Studies, Sunday School, and meetings online. We have been closely monitoring the updates on COVID-19 and will make adjustments as information is made available for a safe re-opening. We are still urging everyone to follow the Federal and Pennsylvanian guidelines to stay at home except to go out for essential errands (like grocery shopping) and for essential workers to do their vital jobs.
If there is anything that we can do for you during this season please let us know. If you need medication or food delivered to you, if you find yourself struggling to pay bills, or if you need someone to talk to as you deal with the stresses of all that is going on, please call or email Pastor Jason. If you are in a position to show kindnesses to neighbors and strangers, we encourage you to let this current season bring out the very best in all of us as we care for one another.
