Ministries

We want you to be a part of what we are doing at Faith Church. There are many opportunities to participate in or volunteer with our various ministry teams. For more details or information on how to get involved, please contact us.

Benevolence

We at Faith Church want to come alongside those needing help in all areas of life. Our benevolence ministry aims to respond to the various types of needs that arise within our church family, as well as in the greater Rochester Hills community. We are available to help provide you with access to resources for physical and spiritual aid in a time of crisis. More information.

Children

Our !mpact children’s ministry runs from birth through 5th grade. Its mission is to empower young people to develop a personal and evangelistic life of faith in Jesus Christ.

Coffee Bar

Our coffee bar is located in the church lobby, and offers a great place to get to know people while enjoying your favorite beverage.

Deacons

We have nine deacons serving in the areas of care and compassion, and building and grounds. Our deacons help strengthen the connection between church attenders and the church through family support, prayer, and by offering comfort in times of illness or other crisis. The building and grounds team is also responsible for the maintenance of the church building. Assigned deacons are available to help plug interested volunteers into ministries or areas of service most suitable to their unique gifts and talents.

Library

Our Christian library is located downstairs in room 201, and is run through a self checkout system. The collection features fiction and nonfiction books and videos, Bible reference materials and commentaries, as well as a children and youth section. The library is open throughout the year during Sunday services, and during the mid-week HomeFront schedule, when in session.

Missions and Outreach

A primary focus of our church is to reach the lost for Christ. Our M2540 missions program, based on Matthew 25:40, aims to care for others through action, provision and prayer. Our heart is to make a difference in our community and abroad, through partnerships with local organizations and missionaries. We regularly educate and encourage our congregation on ways we can prayerfully and practically serve the growing list of needs. More information.

Missional Communities

Missional Communities are small or medium-sized groups of Faith Church members and attenders who seek to live Up-In-Out together by encouraging each other’s spiritual growth, forming friendships of support and encouragement, and serving together in some way outside our church to be a blessing to our community.  Each group meets together in service, fellowship and discipleship throughout the month.  A full list of the missional communities currently meeting can be found in TheCommons (login required).

Prayer

  • Sunday Morning Prayer Group (Conference room at 8:45AM) – We pray through a specific discussion topic or part of the Bible followed by personal and corporate church prayer requests. Over and over again, Christ pointed out that prayer and God’s word, followed up by action are our primary weapons in the spiritual battle that is occurring every day. We’d love to have you join us in the front lines of this spiritual battle.
  • Praying for Adult Children – Are you weary from concern about your adult children? God gives believers effective tools to do battle against the enemy: faith, hope, prayer and the Holy Spirit. Join us on the first and third Monday of the month. Confidentiality and support in a non-judgmental atmosphere are cornerstones of this group. If you would like more specifics, please email julie@faith-epc.org.
  • Thursday Prayer – Andrew Murray once said, “Prayer is the highest part of the work entrusted to us, the root and strength of all other work.” Join us if you are able each Thursday from 12-1 PM in the sanctuary for prayer. We will be praying for kingdom breakthrough and gospel fruit in our people, ministries, city, and world, as well as praying for any special needs any of us would like to share.

Senior Servants

Our Senior Servants team members are church attenders more than 50 years old, who meet periodically to serve and to fellowship. Services for church members and friends include cooperative transportation assistance, help with church maintenance, support of the Military Ave EPC mentoring and food program, as well as simple home repair, advice and physical help for those in need. The team also gathers for times of prayer and worship, and participates in plenty of fun social group activities.

Women of Faith

Our Women of Faith ministry is dynamic, providing opportunities for women of all ages to come together for fellowship, encouragement, prayer and study of the Word of God. We aim to inspire women to fully know, embrace and seek His calling on their lives in relationship to the world around them. Our group regularly hosts Bible studies, friendship circles, prayer breakfasts, retreats, craft nights, dinners out and other special events.

Worship

Our goal through the worship team, influenced by John 4:23, is to inspire an environment where people seek and respond to God. Team members are church attenders who aspire to set an example in worship of Christ, rather than performance. Their artistic, technical and creative expression is reflective of their pursuit of a deepening relationship with Christ. The team is always open and welcome to prospective church attenders interested in joining. More information.

Youth

Teenagers are busy. They constantly juggle everything from family, friends and school to sports, recreation and hobbies. We don’t want church to be just another thing on the list! Our youth ministry strives to be ‘user friendly,’ equipping youth with the right tools to fit God into their already busy lives. We stress that God cares about and uses the details in their current place of life. Our youth ministry offers worship services, Sunday school, small groups and trips. We desire to build the personal relationships that will empower the youth to develop a personal and evangelistic life of faith in Jesus Christ. More Information
