We understand that time is precious for busy families and that Sunday mornings might be one of the only times you get to be together. But we also think that connecting with a warm and caring faith community and spending part of your week worshipping together as a family and journeying ever deeper into the Way of Jesus enhances and enriches your family life in ways that no other activities can.
Our minister, Reverend Larry Doyle, has been with us since 2007 and there is a renewed, energetic, positive Spirit about the church. Our worship is joyful, thoughtful, inspiring, engaging, and lively.
But Faith is about more than Sunday morning!
For example, our Program Calendar has been greatly expanded and our web ministries are constantly adding interesting content including sermons and Facebook Bible Discussions. Not to mention all the dinners, shows, and fun gatherings we offer.
There’s something for everyone at Faith.
You might find yourself drawn to Faith by the worship or the many events, but I think you’ll stay because of the incredibly warm and welcoming people that make up this church. We are truly striving to become a caring, nurturing, transformative community built upon the foundation of journeying ever deeper into the Way of Jesus – Loving God, and Loving People.
We hope you’ll join us!

Our United Church Creed
We are not alone, we live in God's world. We believe in God: who has created and is creating, who has come in Jesus, the Word made flesh, to reconcile and make new, who works in us and others by the Spirit. We trust in God. We are called to be the Church: to celebrate God's presence, to live with respect in Creation, to love and serve others, to seek justice and resist evil, to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen, our judge and our hope. In life, in death, in life beyond death, God is with us. We are not alone. Thanks be to God.
