Members and Friends of Faith UMC –
It’s my pleasure, as the chairperson of the Staff/Pastor/Parish Relations Committee, to announce that it is the intention of Bishop Bruce Ough to appoint Rev. Marianne Ozanne as pastor of Faith United Methodist Church, and acting on behalf of the congregation, the Staff/Pastor/Parish Relations Committee has affirmed the Bishop’s intention. Each church member’s supportive prayers and acts of kindness during the transition period will be greatly appreciated by all of the involved persons. For more information, click here.

When the threat of COVID-19 is over, we hope you will join us for worship on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. The Sunday morning services follow a traditional order of Christian worship with a variety of music, prayers, and a sermon. Sunday School classes for children and youth begin at 9:45 (after Children’s Time). Our services are very visitor-friendly, last approximately one hour and are followed by fellowship time in the Fellowship Hall.

Adult Sunday School class canceled.

March is Minnesota Food Share Month – we’ve surpassed our goal!
