ONCE UPON A TIME...
Pentecost Sunday, May 24, 2016, marked the 20th birthday milestone for Faith United Church of Christ, for we became a new congregation effective on May 5, 1996, and we worshiped as a new church for the first time on Pentecost Sunday. May 27, 1996.
Faith United Church of Christ was born from the merger of two local churches. The St. Thomas UCC congregation and the Tabor UCC congregation were each facing their own challenges and were drawn by God to be united as one. As the result of many prayerful conversations among and between members of the two congregations and their leadership councils with guidance from God the two churches voted simultaneously and unanimously to form a single, new congregation on May 5, 1996 and the name they gave to it was, and is Faith United Church of Christ.
Our name not only identifies the faith tradition and denomination of which we are a member, the United Church of Christ, but it also states that we are united as a church by our faith in Jesus Christ.
