WORSHIP

Believing that "God is Still Speaking," we seek to live out our Christian traditions in our everyday lives as well as in our worship. We seek to learn together, share worship together, and be compassionate with one another as we live in the world as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Our Sunday service has a blend of traditional and contemporary worship elements and music. We are a church rich in diversity, yet one in Christ as we work, worship, learn and grow together. Our Faith Church family encompasses Boston, Colden, Glenwood, Concord, Eden, Hamburg, Orchard Park, Springville and other neighboring towns. Communion is celebrated monthly and is served by our Pastor and our Church Board members. The length or worship tends to be around an hour, although special presentations, Communion, or Baptisms can lengthen the service time.

  • Worship time varies depending on the time of year. From September through June, we worship at 10:15 AM. During the summer we worship at 9:30 AM.
  • Sunday School Classes for all those over 3 years begin at 9 am, No Sunday school during summer season

Our worship services include a variety of music from traditional, gospel, folk and contemporary. Music is a very important and essential part of Faith Church. Over the years we have been blessed with dedicated choir members and wonderfully talented people who assume the roles of singers, organist, pianist, choir director, arrangers, and composers. The choir currently averages eight members and are most often accompanied by the director on keyboard and often with the addition of guitar and mandolin. The choir sings at almost every regular and special service. Faith Church is also blessed with many talented members who share their musical gifts as soloists or in small groups. We invite special guest musicians to participate in our worship service.

Music has been known to build an emotional bond between people, so singing in a group actually brings you closer together. If you love to sing, perhaps you would make a great addition to our friendly church choir. Contact church office for details.

The Voices of Faith

The "Voices of Faith" is a Faith Church Exclusive. Beginning in 2001, under the direction of Rev. Gary Burdick, the group continues to perform today with some of the original members and transitioned into four talented musicians. They perform regularly for church services and senior care facilities and are often invited for entertaining at local Christian venues. They are gifted in sharing songs of praise, gospel and original compositions.

Mission & Outreach

Puerto Rico Benefit written by Pegge Cook

 

            My nephew’s wife is from Puerto Rico.  We traveled there for their wedding 7 years ago.  Recently, they traveled from South Carolina to spend Christmas with her family.  During their stay, they were rocked out of bed by an earthquake that measured 6.4 on the Richter scale.  Her parent’s home was a mess but it was still a house.  Others were not so lucky.  Like thousands of others, they slept outside that night.  Many are sleeping outside still.  Some because their houses collapsed or are unsafe.  Others because they are terrified of being inside.  My nephew and niece are now home safe but her family is living this nightmare along with thousands of others of others who have sustained terrible loss.  Schools have been condemned, hospitals are unsafe and overflowing, roads are impassable. Lori sent me a list of needs and where to send them.  I am asking for donations of cold medicines, Benadryl, Tylenol, bug repellent, sun block, hand sanitizer, wrapped snacks, zip lock bags and batteries.  The full list will be posted on the bulletin board however; I am hoping to only collect lightweight items that will not cost a fortune to ship.  I would like to collect items through February and will pack and ship all to the address she provided.

 

 

Sunday school kids will pack on February 16th and the complete bags will be delivered to Bread of Life in Colden. We are asking the congregation to participate in the donation of the food items.  

*This year’s “Meal-in-a-bag” mission will be Chicken and wild rice casserole.

If you would like to participate in this mission please bring in and deposit items at the box under the bulletin board:

Ingredients

            1 box Long Grain Wild Rice Mix - Uncle Ben's, 6oz, preferably the quick cook option

  • 10 or 12 ounce can of chicken
  • 15 ounce can green beans
  • 10 ounce can cream of mushroom soup
  •  1/2 cup sliced almonds packet = 1.24 oz, which may be hard to find, so the closest bag in size available is good

Women’s Support   - The Women’s Support will be meeting Wednesday, February 13 at 7 p.m. We will be making peace blankets.  Come join us!  We always have refreshments and some goodies too!
