Yes, we're open sundays!

8:30a & 10a - in person and online

We are now open for in person Sunday worship services indoors, and will continue to take safety measures for those meeting on our church campus. We are excited to worship together in the Worship Center and offer programs for kids (babies-5th grade) and students! If you want more details about what to expect for in person services, or click the button below.

If you aren't able to come in person, you can join us for worship every Sunday when we live stream services at fairoaks.online.church. The early service will feature more traditional music, while the second service is more contemporary. Both services will have the same unified message! Click the button below for more about online services. You can also watch services on demand anytime here.

Current Series

The Apostles’ Creed finds its origin in the apostles’ teachings and contains essential Christian doctrines and beliefs that summarize the gospel and make up the theological foundation of our faith. The scriptural truths contained in the creed help us to operate out of good theology, not bad theology, with the knowledge that our faith is rooted in truth and a rich history that spans past and present. The lines of the creed aren’t mere words. They are the essence of what we confess and believe as Christ followers today!

The Chosen watch parties
starting july 7th

Starting on July 7, you're invited to join us on Wednesday evenings to watch episodes from The Chosen series, a powerful and moving depiction of Jesus and his ministry on earth with his disciples. The series portrays Jesus "through the eyes of those who met him." Everyone is welcome to join us!   We'll meet in the AMC room, located in the Family Life Center building from 6:30-8pm each Wednesday to watch an episode weekly.

Welcome Club Summer Camp
Volunteers needed

Fair Oaks Church in partnership with the EPC World Outreach and other EPC churches, is helping World Relief of Sacramento launch a Welcome Club Summer Camp. The Welcome Club Summer Camp will provide a safe and fun learning environment as participants engage in team building games, sport focused activities and nutritional education. Welcome Camp will be a great setting for new volunteers to engage in cross- cultural relationships. Volunteers will be able to help lead and organize specific activities with the intention of encouragement and connection. Volunteers must be 17 years or older. If you'd like to help please contact Lauri Balbi.

Practices begin August 26

We are starting something new this coming season! Our Christmas Choir is open to all ages and for anyone who loves to sing - especially Christmas music. Rehearsals begin August 26th and will meet on Thursdays from 7-8:30pm in Nelson Hall. We're planning to have our Christmas Choir participate in services and events this holiday season.
 
If you are interested in joining of have any questions please contact our Worship Director, Lauren Ross. We look forward to celebrating the Advent season with festive choral music!

masks optional starting 6/6

Due to the decline of COVID cases, increased availability of the vaccine and the CDC recommendations changing, we will make masks optional on our campus for worship services, programs and events starting June 6th. We will continue taking other safety precautions like social distancing and routine cleaning. We ask that everyone would remain respectful and sensitive towards others. You are more than welcome to continue wearing masks if desired. We will also continue offering church online for those unable or uncomfortable coming in person. Contact us directly with concerns and questions. Learn more below if you'd like more details about this decision and our response.
