Faith Church is a parish church in the
Episcopal Diocese of Northern California. Our diocese covers most of
Northern California (excluding San Francisco) and includes 70+ locations where
God is worshipped in the Episcopal tradition. Please be sure to also visit the
Web Page for our Diocese.
We were a mission church of the Diocese for the first 9 years of our
existence, and we have now incorporated as a parish (Spring, 2001).
Faith Church first opened for public worship on Easter Sunday in 1992. Since
that time we have grown slowly but steadily, and we now average a total Sunday
attendance of over 300 people. Our members are primarily young families,
although retirement-aged people and singles are well represented too. Children,
from newborns to teens, are always visible in great numbers.
We strive to be friendly, relaxed, and open to newcomers. While we take our
faith very seriously, we are much more casual about the mechanics of practicing
that faith. Nobody gets too excited if the candles are not lit in the correct
order, or if we have to stop and restart a song after the first line because we
discover that we're in the wrong key.
For the first eleven years of our existence, we occupied rented space in a
local business center. Now, we are very excited to make our home in our new
all-purpose building, which we moved into on Februray 16, 2003. We now have a
worship space that will accommodate over 500 people.
