How do I schedule an event for the ministry I champion at the church?

To plan a meeting or event at the church facility or offsite, please fill out an Event Request Form online or contact the church office for a form. They will gather the needed information or direct one of the support staff to do so. Once the event has been approved, it will be added to the master calendar and you will be contacted to confirm the final details, including publicity for your event. Events that are added to the master calendar are automatically added to the Life Line.

On-campus events require you request use of facility at least one month in advance of event.

To fill out an Event Request Form and request use of the facility, click here.

What do we publish?

We publish Faith Fellowship sponsored events (i.e. Bible studies, prayer times, services, outreaches, fellowships, classes, planning meetings, etc.). We occasionally (and only upon staff approval) will advertise events that don't originate from within our fellowship.

What are the publication deadlines?

Weekly Life Line - Wednesday, 14 days prior to distribution. For example, if you need something in the bulletin on the weekend of March 24, we need the information by Monday, March 10.

As a rule, most events will be published for two consecutive weeks prior to the event. In order to plan adequately, please keep our deadlines in mind when submitting information.

Thank you for "bearing with us" as we seek more efficient ways to serve this local Body. Although in the midst of the growth this sometimes seems challenging, we do praise the Lord for blessing us so abundantly!  Church and ministry support staff are availabel to assist you with this process.
