Our Worship Celebration Service is directed by our Production Team: Melissa Silva, Arla Reed and Lois Hood.
Worship at Faith Church is intended to lead you to a place of praise and adoration to our Lord Jesus Christ. It is meant to bridge scripture with life held in an atmosphere of friendship and love. We believe that the Bible is totally true and changes lives. Therefore, we pursue worship that is culturally relevant, while remaining true to the Bible and its teachings, and keeping in accordance to Faith's Vision and Core Values.
Ministry Assistant - Elunda Morrison
Elunda Morrison is our Ministry Assistant, but that really does not cover all she does. Her job includes all the duties of Administrator, Office manager, and sometimes receptionist.
She does all this with a smile.
Business Manager - Randy Coryell
Randy is not only our Business Manager, but also an Elder, Small Group Leader, and Presbytery Treasurer. He does this while only spending ten hours a week at the church.
If you believe the part about ten hours, Randy has some swamp land near Parish he will sell you.
