Who we are…

Faith United Methodist Church is one church in two locations: Faith Church on W. Chapel Ridge Road in Fox Chapel, and the Roots of Faith Ministry Center on Main Street in Sharpsburg.

Our Mission:  To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Our Vision:    Building community by reconciling people with God and one another.

Our Goals:    We will build community by…

1. Welcoming all people to worship, grow, serve, and care

2. Connecting people with God and each other

3. Bridging diverse communities and cultures

4. Partnering with others for community transformation

Our Values:    

Faith – We will grow in the Lord Jesus Christ

People – We will celebrate them in all their diversity

Fellowship – We will build meaningful relationships

Generosity – We will share God’s blessings with those around us

Service- We will do God’s work in our church, community, and world

Narrative Vision:   

We envision a community of people rich in diversity who follow Jesus together and eagerly welcome others (Matthew 28:19). We envision a church where relationships are intentionally formed and cultivated, where care and healing are given when we are hurting or broken, and where all persons are given room to express their God-given gifts. We envision extending that reality to our neighbors by creating opportunities for community to form, grow, and flourish. We long to see neighbors intentionally bless and serve one another, and for barriers of race, class, age, and culture to be broken down. We believe that our church has a unique opportunity to bear witness to unity, reconciliation, and love in a way that will enable our community to reflect the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.

Safe Sanctuaries:   

Faith United Methodist Church pledges to conduct the ministry of Jesus Christ in ways that ensure the physical and emotional safety and spiritual growth of all of our children, youth, and vulnerable adults as well as all of our workers who serve in these capacities.  Review our Safe Sanctuaries Policy to learn more about how we do this.
