These are uncertain times and, normally, in such seasons we rightly want the comfort God provides through His church. The doors of the nation’s churches are largely closed for the safety of all of those who would otherwise attend, yet the church doors being closed does not mean the church is closed or, more importantly, that God’s care for you is somehow “closed.” Our partner churches are busy putting together online opportunities for worship, encouragement from God’s Word, prayer and more, and we’re launching our first ever online Bible study at FaithTree, too.
With “social distancing” shutting down much of our society, including traditional, in-person Bible studies, FaithTree is offering a Men’s Bible Study for men of all ages going through the comforting Servant Songs of the Book of Isaiah. It will be facilitated by two pastors familiar to FaithTree, Pastor Tim (of Little Hills Church) and Pastor Brad (of Bible Baptist Church).
We care about every person God brings to FaithTree and we think part of showing His love is pausing FaithTree events temporarily to protect those who come from exposure to the coronavirus. Here is an update on our plans for the coming weeks.
We are a ministry deeply rooted in our local churches. You can read more about our commitment to this on our page for local church ministry leaders, but one key aspect of it is that we are committed to being tied into and accountable to our local churches. Our Pastoral Advisory Board helps to achieve this commitment and enriches our ministry as each member contributes to our plans and vision.
During Advent, we all excitedly look towards celebrating Jesus’s birth. However, suddenly it is December 26 and the world resets to its ordinary preoccupations. That’s what is wonderful about observing the Twelve Days of Christmas: it helps us keep reflecting on God’s grace and the miracle of Christmas after the busyness of Christmas Day is past.
The Twelve Days of Christmas are the days between December 25th and the traditional celebration of the arrival of the wise men at Epiphany (January 6). This year, please join us in devotional journey as we look at some gifts far more incredible than a partridge in a pear tree. These are the gifts from our God as Paul describes them in the Letter to the Romans. This devotional has twelve readings exploring the ways Jesus coming into the world is for us.
We believe God is calling us to plant a church that is driven to serve our community with the love of Christ from the beginning. A church that is centered around a deep love of God's Word and a constant expectation that His Word speaks to our lives today. A church that is intentionally multigenerational and stretches across divides in style with elements from both ancient aspects of worship and recent praise songs.
On a crisp autumn evening, we'll have a festive evening of delicious food, a fun games, fantastic prizes and an outdoor worship concert by the campfire! This will be a great night to get to know young adults from local churches, campus ministries and more, get plugged in and just have fun. There are more great announcements to come, so RSVP right away to stay up-to-date. Please invite friends to join you and then sign up right away by going to our Faithtoberfest 19 Facebook Event. This is a night not to miss! The fun starts at 6:30 p.m.
We have so much coming up over the next few weeks during our first ever Summertime Festival at FaithTree! Discover (or rediscover) FaithTree as we begin our Summertime Festival with “Midsummer CafÃ©,” a night filled with delicious appetizers, favorite praise songs and fun conversation with friends old and new over dessert. Then continue the festivities with the Seventh Annual Film Festival as well as a special Dinner and Pool Party night! You won't want to miss any of it!
We always love when you can join us in person, but if you are traveling or otherwise detained from being at the Upper Room for one of our services, please consider joining our livestream instead!
FaithTree Christian Fellowship is based at the Upper Room at 335 Droste Rd. in St. Charles, MO. Sometimes people get thrown off when looking for us, because we are located on the rear side of the shopping center; when you pull in, simply drive around back, where you will find ample parking. Before events, we always put up clear signage to make it easier to spot us.
