The “Faith In” Project

"Faith In" is a United Church of Christ project that celebrates all the ways God is still speaking locally—in neighborhoods, towns, and cities where God calls us to serve.  The campaign hopes to highlight, celebrate and kick-start even more of the local mission the church is famous for. Faith In will help you, your neighbors, friends, and family members loudly proclaim: "We Have Faith!" – in God, in our church, and in our community.  Click HERE to see how you can join the project.
