COVID-19

Community Update:

Dear members and friends of Faith,

As businesses around San Diego county begin opening in modified ways, the language of “reopening” is in the air, especially as some churches begin to “reopen” their campuses.

At Faith, we are not re-opening the campus for in person worship services and activities at this time. To be clear, the church was never closed. The ministries of the church have taken on new forms. I invite you to embrace some of the changes we have been and will be implementing.

Fellowship

Coffee Fellowship on Zoom each Sunday morning at 11am, an informal time of conversation, catching up with each other at the start of another week.

On each Wednesday morning with the Bible Study email, you will receive a link for the Coffee Fellowship on Zoom.

Worship

Sunday morning worship service videos online.

Lord’s Supper by video online in each of our homes on the first Sunday monthly.

Education

Wednesday morning Bible study videos.

Sunday school resource bags for our children and youth.

In August, a discussion with the book “Waking Up White, and Finding Myself in the Story of Race.”

Beginning in August, practicing prayer with a spiritual director is available virtually. See days and times on the Spiritual page of this website.

Mission

We are supporting Agape House’s food pantry for San Diego State University students who are facing food insecurity.

We are supporting Father Joe’s Village in their response to those experiencing homelessness.

Going Forward

Faith’s task force overseeing the campus will continue to monitor the current situation weekly. The task force consists of Nancy Harber (chair), Jill Gustafson, Kathy Hays, Paula Carmack, and Rich Volkert. You will be updated as the conversation continues to develop.

In times of crisis and uncertainty, the church demonstrates her true character. I am grateful to each of you for your manifold expressions of dedication, support, and love. Thank you for faithfully sending your pledges and donations to the church by mail.

Grace and peace,

Sam
