    Church Development:  January 2006 a group of believers who were unwilling to compromise the truth of God’s word founded the Faith Lutheran Church. In May 2012 the church was led to change the name to Faith Community Church. The new name reflected the fact that a number of us do not have a Lutheran background. It also reflects our desire to be a part of the community we are in and help to meet the needs of the people who live there.   2011 acquisition of land (donated)   2011-2012 – building of church   2012 – occupancy
