December Services

Faith welcomes ALL to a variety of worship services in December.  Each service during the time of Advent leads us to Christmas Day.  Christmas celebrates Jesus' birth, when God enters our world to make things right.  Our Advent theme this years follows the Advent Conspiracy movement, focusing on worshipping fully, spending less, giving more and loving all.  Please join us...for the greatest story ever told, a moment in time that changes everything!

Serving in Worship


Our Sunday morning liturgy—the worship service—is created only through the work and gifts of many different people.  We welcome everyone to serve at Faith.  One way to serve is by assisting during Sunday morning worship services.  

  • children, adults, no experience necessary!
  • worship assistants, ushers, communion assistants, lectors, greeters, A/V team, acolytes, altar guild, etc.  
  • contact the office at faith@faithgoshen.com or 574-533-5760 if you are interested in serving and want more info or have questions about these ministries
