WELCOME

 

Summertime is a great time of the year.  It's the season of singing and swimming, hiking and biking, fish fries and barbecues, fireworks and festivals.  It's the time of the year when we reunite with extended family and gather with old friends.  It's the season of renewed life and rekindling love.

"This is the day the Lord has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it."  - Psalm 118:24

Every day is a gift from God, but there are those seasons when our souls are especially thirsty for God.  If your soul is longing for awakening, come and worship with us.  If your spirit is seeking a community in which to love and be loved, know and be known, come grow with us. 

Faith is a congregation with roots in three local congregations.  These congregations (from Midlothian, Oak Forest, and Orland Park) gave up their former names and buildings to become a new congregation that can continue the mission of Jesus Christ – serving as His hands and feet in the world.
