FaithConneXions (FCX)

Connecting Ordinary Lives to Extraordinary Purpose
 
Transforming Lives, Changing the World is the vision that God has impressed upon the heart of Faith Methodist Church. Faith has been partnering with God to fulfill God's calling for her as a church for nearly 50 years. There is still so much work to be done.
 
As part of the body of Christ in Faith, you are in this partnership. Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
(1 Corinthians 12: 12, 27 NIV)
 
How do we do this then? Every one of us in Faith has a role to play. There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. (1 Corinthians 12:4 - 6 NIV)
 
Definitely, you have a gift and a talent to be used for His purpose. There is an extensive list of opportunities for you. Take a look at this web portal to give you an overview of the vibrant ministries at Faith and the opportunities available. This is for you if you are:
  • interested to serve in a particular ministry
  • keen to serve but don't know where and how to serve
  • already serving but would like to explore other ministry opportunities
  • still contemplating and need more information 
The other good news is that you don't have to serve alone! You can rally your other Small Group members to serve with you OR you can serve together as a small group.
