About Faith … and our local programs & services

Faith Baptist Church was founded in 1985 in New Maryland.  Initially, our fledgling community met in the  facilities of New Maryland United Baptist Church but by 1986 we moved into our present location at 525 New Maryland Highway (just off the main New Maryland road/highway).  In 2007 we completed and dedicated a large expansion which meets our current needs for the diverse programs and services that we hold throughout the week.

We have a variety of local programs and services to meet the needs of local families.   

  • We have a mid-week (Tuesdays 6:30 – 7:45 pm) program for the K – grade 5 age called Donut Club, with music, games and lessons.
  • Concurrently (Tuesdays 6:30 – 8 pm) we have a Middle school program called Detour that is packed with fun, friends and learning.
  • Just after this our High School youth meet on Tuesdays from 8 – 9:30 pm in our Lind of Departure.  The purpose of this time is to establish wholesome friendships and equip them for entry in adulthood.
  • Our College & Career meet on Thursday from 7 – 9 pm.  Each week it looks a little different so it is worth coming to check it out.
  • We also have a choir that meets on Wednesday evenings
  • Our Sunday school is designed to meet the learning needs for all ages and background,  with classes held before the Sunday morning worship service.
  • Finally we have special VBS and Sunday evening Drive-ins during the summer.  Contact us for the exact details.

We have a unique online program for our francophone friends coming from the Maghreb (see here for details and volunteer opportunities)
