“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord,
and he will repay him for his deed.”
FOC Kids Club teaches children to put Jesus first in every aspect of life. By working together, the children form healthy relationships & develop positive feelings about themselves & others through bible lessons, arts & crafts, and more.
Classes, available for children 4-12 years of age, meet after the praise & worship portion of our Sunday morning & Thursday evening service. The classes are divided according to compatible age groups.
Pastor Simuel is called to proclaim the Gospel of Christ to this generation and share with all youth a love for Christ and a passion for righteousness. He is committed to Christ and to teach this generation about the power of His Holy Spirit through the truth of His word, worship and ministry with real messages about real issues. This is all done through relationship building and through the love of God.
Young people, if you're between the 13-17 years of age, come and be a part of FOC's exciting Youth Group held on Thursday evenings at 7pm! Through regular meetings, camp-outs, mission trips, fund raising events & more, you will have a chance to meet others of your own age who understand what you are experiencing as a teen in today's society.
If you are one of those "precious saints" called the "elderly", you can thank God, for you have arrived at the apex of life. You have arrived at the top of the mountain where you can breathe the rare atmosphere of a long life of experience, knowledge, & honor and have an excellent view that none of those below you have ever seen. You have crossed many bridges, passed many crossroads and have come out on top. The wrinkles in your face are marks of distinction that show character traits, laugh lines, & worries.
-You may have lost your whistle, but thank God, you can still breathe and have a sturdy heartbeat.
-Your beautiful gray hair marks you with honor.
the Bible speaks well of you when it says, "The beauty of old men is the gray head." Proverbs 20:29
Ages 55 & up, we gather together weekly during the Bible Study Hour & monthly meetings are scheduled for special activities, good times, & fellowship.
Senior Saints, come join us!!
Mark 16:15 says, "...Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."
We are committed to fulfilling this great commission of our Lord Jesus Christ. Through our Missions Program, we supply several opportunities for church members to be a part of carrying the Gospel into all the world. Each year we schedule several mission trips to give people a chance to see what the church is like outside of the United States.
Currently, we are financially and prayerfully supporting theses ministries:
Lighthouse Gospel Mission
The Women's Place
Prison Ministries (Abe Brown)
Prepare His Ways Ministries
Dream Center Int'l
Praise FM/ St. Vincent
United World Mission
THLE/ Dominican Rep
Faith Outreach Academy
Our duty and desire is to offer the children entrusted to our care the very best life preparation possible. A child's education is for the purpose of preparing him for the unique call of God on his life. Our desire is to work closely with the Christian home and church to ensure each child is fully equipped to face the life and ministry challenges that lie ahead (Ephesians 4:8-14).
We believe that the Christian school is an extension of the Christian home and that parents are responsible for the education of their children (Proverbs 22:6). Our duty is to assist Christian parents by making sure that the curriculum and methodology presented in the classroom is fully Christian.
Faith Theological Seminary & Christian College
From the inception of the vision for Faith Theological Seminary and Christian College, our President, Dr. George W. Walters, Jr., believed that the institution should have a four-fold purpose by providing the following:
A. A basic foundation for beginning Christians in the Word of God to gain confidence in their relationship with the Lord.
B. Training for service in the local church (whether for staff member or volunteer) as well as advanced training for older Christians to be able to provide support to the work of the ministry.
C. A program to prepare people for ministry as they sense God’s call on their life.
D. Advanced studies for the seasoned minister and the development of academic credentials for a life of ministry experience.
The educational training is focused on preparing and equipping the individual for religious vocations within the context of the local church, ministry opportunities outside of the church, and/or para-church organizations.
