"BEHOLD, I Am Doing A New Thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?"
Isaiah 43:19



Welcome to New Faith,

United Church of Christ

in Auburn, California

What can you expect to find

at New Faith?

Whoever you are,

wherever you are on life's journey--

you'll find acceptance and companionship

on your spiritual journey.

You are welcome here!

At the heart of everything

is our commitment
to follow Jesus' path of welcome,
healing and transformation
-- for ourselves, for our communities

and for the earth. This includes you!

We offer you refuge,

rest and food for thought.

We invite you to find your gifts for ministry

on your journey, provide a place to express them,

and empower you to use them in the world.
Whether you simply celebrate worship with us

or join our community's journey--

you’ll feel the openness

and commitment to make a difference
in the world through ministry.

You're invited to worship!

10:30 a.m. Sundays

Worship is informal and interactive;

our music is a blend of contemporary & classics.

We don’t look like a traditional church

— no pews, no organ, no choir, no robes

so come just as you are!

New Faith is located at
540 Wall Street

near Highway 49 in Auburn.

Who We Are

We are committed to renewing Christianity
in ways that are faithful

to the heart of Christianity,
yet open the door for new generations
to explore and claim as your own.

You're invited to participate

in this transformation!

We are a creative faith community

moving in the 21st century as

part of the emerging strand of Christianity.

We are a progressive Christian presence

in the Sierra foothills, sharing Jesus’ Good News

through a theology of love and grace.

We believe in a thoughtful, questing faith;

that sincere questions are often as important

as comforting answers.

Scriptures are our guide, not a god.

As an open & affirming congregation,

we welcome our LGBT brothers and sisters

as full members.

We are part of a justice-loving, peacemaking United Church of Christ

that seeks to turn the world right side up

through God’s radical inclusive welcome

and justice for all people.
