FAITH OAKVILLE: Have you observed it? People, maybe even people close to you or who used to be closed to you, have changed. Anger, rage, bitterness, fear, anxiety, grief, and a host of other emotional health issues have increased to levels that have people shaking their heads in confusion. And Christians haven’t been immune. What is wrong? What is wrong with us? In this series titled It's Time for a Check-Up, we are taking time to do some evaluation and understand how the good news of the Gospel can break through to bring healing.
FAITH COLUMBIA: One book in the New Testament is credited for turning the soul of Augustine “upside-down.” The same book warmed the heart of John Wesley towards conversion. The very same book also turned a German monk, Martin Luther, from searching for assurance of his salvation to confidently declaring, “When I understood this text, the doors of paradise swung open, and I walked through.” This powerful, life-changing and profound book has been nicknamed “The Gospel According to Paul” but is better known as simply the book of Romans. Together we’re going to dig deep into Romans and mine out this beautiful letter that shows us the power and beauty of the Good News for all people. In this first series of three over the next couple years, we’ll focus on the gravity of sin and the depth of our declared righteousness in Jesus.
Midweek Advent worship will be only online this year, focusing on Family Traditions. For three Wednesdays, beginning December 2 at 7 pm, services will include a time of worship and message highlighting the meaning beyond the traditions of putting up Christmas lights, the Christmas tree, and the practice of gift-giving.
Our weekend worship and messages during December will center around the historic tradition, Christmas Carols. The Carols have been a staple of the Advent/Christmas season for hundreds of years, bringing joyful, familiar lyrics and tunes that often conjure up memories of Christmases from the past.

FAITH OAKVILLE: In this series, we will focus on how our worship is not limited to sitting in the seats on Sundays. Worship cannot be neatly confined to discrete times or places; nor can it be limited to a specific aspect of our lives. Worship is holistic; it is reflected in all we do and all we are.
FAITH COLUMBIA: We're in this together! That statement is one that lets us know we aren't alone, that others feel what we are feeling, and that others are experiencing what we are experiencing. As the people of God, we often feel isolated and alone, but that is not how God intends for us to live.
FAITH OAKVILLE: During the month of September, we will focus on what God is doing around the world and closer to home in our city. Each week we will focus on one of Faith's mission partners and discover how we can make an impact.
