Investing into relationships has always been at the heartbeat of the church. Events like potlucks, seasonal dinners, baseball games, family competitions, games nights, and beach days have always been a part of our history. Faith has also been intentional to reach out to those isolated or in need. For a time, several young women would get up on Easter morning at 2 a.m. to go and sing to the shut-in members of the church and celebrate the special day together. This desire to support one another gave the reassurance to many to get through the difficult moments in life.
The desire to positively impact our community continued in 2003 with the launch of our meal ministry in Harwood Elementary School. It started out of a prompting from God to approach the principal and ask of the school’s need. We were shocked to learn that financial strain was causing many children to come to school without breakfast. We resolved to make a difference and meet this need. In 2009 our ministry expanded to W.L. Seaton Secondary School and has grown to faithfully meet the daily needs of over 250 students between both schools by providing a daily breakfast and a weekly lunch to Seaton.
The true legacy of the church is the ways in which God has used Faith to support individuals through times of crisis, illness, grief, tragedy, uncertainty as well as times of joy, anticipation and prosperity. In almost every conversation or shared comment the strength of friendship, family and relationships has been apparent.
