Faith Community's Deaf Ministry meets Sundays for worship at 10:30 a.m. in the Life Center. They meet for special events on their own or with the Hearing church THROUGHOUT the year.
Ministry For and By Deaf People
The Deaf Ministry at Faith Community Church has been uniquely built to reach out to deaf people.It was founded by Pastor Richard Steinbach, a deaf man eager to share the love of God with other deaf people in their own language. While some churches provide interpreters to translate the English language into American Sign Language (ASL), Faith Community’s deaf ministry communicates in the native language of the deaf.
The worship service is preached in ASL. This is effective in reaching the heart of the ASL speaker. It is not a translated version. The message is presented in the most effective way. Also, the community of deaf church is other deaf people so they are able to fellowship, pray, study, and come alongside each other without language barriers.They are united as deaf followers of God.
Once a month the deaf congregation joins the hearing church for a combined worship service. This happens on the first Sunday of the month; there is an interpreter for the deaf. The ministry group is led by Randall Suhr.
Faith Community Church began its ministry proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ in 1984. We are an independent, nondenominational fellowship.
