Worship Bulletin: Sunday, Jan. 17, 2021

As a local Christian church, we are a welcoming community of everyday people who hold the teachings of Jesus as central to all we do.

We seek to embrace the town, nation and world in which we live in with the love, hope, and goodness of our compassionate and faithful God. Our congregation strives to know God better through the study of scripture, the discernment of the Holy Spirit, and the fellowship of each other as we walk through our life journey. Faith is not only the name of the church but also the way we seek to live out our relationship with Jesus Christ in everyday life. 

God Is Still SpeakingOur church family encompasses the towns of Boston, Springville, Colden, Orchard Park, Hamburg, East Aurora, Eden, Buffalo, Alden, and East Concord. Our hospitality is extended to people of many religious backgrounds including Roman Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian, Methodist, Anglican, and Lutheran. As a United Church of Christ, serving a multi-generational church community, Faith strives to welcome everyone no matter where they are on their journey of faith.

So welcome to "Faith!" No Matter Where You Are On Life's Journey, Old Friend or a Newcomer You Are Welcome Here.

Welcome!

The season of Advent

Advent begins on November 29! On each of the four Sundays leading up to Christmas we will light a new candle on our Advent wreath during worship. The word “advent” is related to the word “event” and refers to a happening or a coming to be of something. During Advent we celebrate and anticipate the hope, peace, joy, and love that Christ brings into the world.

If you would like to participate as a candle lighter, please speak with Pastor Ted.
