You Are

Yes, it is true:  Faith United Church of Christ is a community of faith that welcomes all people to share in the mission and ministry of Jesus.  We would like to have you join us for worship, stay for a time of fellowship and education and come back to engage in ministry with us.

Our faith community is not large, but we have big hearts and a great capacity for serving the needs of our fellow travelers in life.

We are not a wealthy community, but we have enough to share, are willing to do so, and ask those who join us to share when, where, and how ever they can do so.

Come worship with us on Sunday mornings at 9:30.  Our dress is casual, the atmosphere is open, welcoming and accepting.  Please join us!

You, as members of Faith United Church of Christ and the Eastern Iowa Association, have received an invitation to participate in a workshop on the Economic Justice Covenant Program of the United Church of Christ to be led by Dr. Edith (Edie) Rasell, Minister of Economic Justice, Justice and Witness Ministries of the United Church of Christ.  Here is how Edie is planning our workshop event:

o   A mix of things with the whole group and with small groups.
o   Bible study on passages focused on economic justice.
o   Information about the economic justice covenant program including resources that are available and tips for going through the process.
o   We will discuss how work on economic justice could bring in other people in the community who are concerned about justice and the common good.
o     We will learn about economic realities today including poverty and the root causes of poverty – the dire need to be doing ministries of economic justice.
