We are a community centered on Jesus Christ,
committed to one another, and connected to the world around
us by sharing and showing the love of God, beginning in Melrose.

Our greatest desire is to see people worship and serve the Lord Jesus. We invite you to check out this website to find out more about who we are, or better yet, join us for our Sunday morning worship service. Please contact us with questions or comments, and join us in person as we worship the Lord together.

Community Groups FAQ

 
1. When & Where is it?
  • Weeks of February 25- March 31
  • There are 2 Different Groups & Times to meet
    • Sunday Afternoon Group- Pastor John will lead one group following Sunday morning services at the church. It will begin around 12:05 allowing for a break and/or bite of food. 
    • Monday Night Group - Leo Badaro & Pastor John will lead this groupat 6:30 PM at homes in Melrose - .
2. Is there 'Homework'?
  • No, you can come any week without having prepared or read ahead of time. We'll read a passage together each week before we discuss it. That being said, we will be going through Matthew using the Lent for Everyone devotional available for the church--so it would be a great opportunity to discuss that with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.
3. What will it look like?
  • Below is a sample timeline of a group's meeting (90 minutes). The times are flexible, but out of respect for everyone's time, we want to make sure we begin and end promptly. 
    1. 10 mins. - Welcome - warmly greet each participant 
    2. 30 mins. - Fellowship - casual chatting, snacks, game, ice-breaker
    3. 30 mins. - Discussion around the Word
    4. 5 mins. - Prayer Requests & Close in Prayer
    5. 15 mins. - Clean Up & Go Home on Time
4. What about kids?
  • Many groups give their kids the opportunity to either sit in and participate in the group and / or they set aside a 'play room' or play area where kids can be away from the discussion but easily monitored. 
5. What's the Goal?
  1. Fellowship - We really hope to be able to foster a relaxed environment where we can be the Church--get to know one another better and encourage each other in the faith as brothers and sisters in Christ. Hopefully, we can share prayer requests, struggles, and insights with one another as well. 
  2. Grow in Christ - We hope to grow in Christ by looking at His Word and discussing it withScreenshot 2024-01-31 161742.png one another. We will be working through the book of Matthew with a church-wide devotional Lent for Everyone (below) which will guide us through the Gospel of Matthew over these 6 weeks. The Leader will facilitate a discussion around a Scripture or devotion as we walk through Matthew together.
  3. Opportunity to Invite Others - As we continue, we hope that these groups will be fertile ground to invite friends, neighbors, new visitors or those investigating Christianity to experience Christ's love and discuss the Bible in the casual environment of someone's home. 
6. More questions - ask Pastor Jonathan

Join us every Sunday at 10:00 am.

Every Sunday morning we gather together as a community at 10:00am to worship God. This is our opportunity to proclaim God's worth and to celebrate what he has done for us through Jesus Christ. We don't come because of religious duty or obligation, but we come to hear from God through his Word and to respond to him in prayer and praise.

Our Servant's Heart Pantry

Open every Friday from 9:30-10:30 AM

A Servant's Heart Food Pantry is a vital ministry of Faith Evangelical Church and one that helps us fulfill our mission to make disciples beginning in the community of Melrose. No matter where you live there are those who are struggling to make ends meet. Melrose is no different. By offering a Food Pantry we meet people's physical need for food. By being the hands and feet of Jesus and meeting the physical needs, our hope is that we will also meet their greatest need, which is to see our need for a Saviour and repent. We want to them to know Jesus who can satisfy and fulfill all our needs perfectly.
