Welcome to the 8th Day Faith Community
An Ecumenical Church
We are a small, diverse ecumenical church with members from different faith backgrounds and ways of expressing our faith. We hold in common the desire to follow Jesus through peacemaking, work for justice (especially economic justice), and environmental sanity.All are welcome, regardless of faith (or lack of it), religious background, age, gender, sexual orientation, wealth (or lack of it), ethnicity, or any other characteristic that ordinarily separates us from one another. We are open and affirming and value the differences among us. Check us out! Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM.

December 1, 2013 - First Sunday of Advent
Hello Brother and Sisters! It is my great honor to get to share with you on this, the first Sunday of Advent. This is the time when we make good use of what, for the northern hemisphere, is the darkest time of the year. The harvest festivals are over, the trees have shed their leaves, the cold is settling in, and the sun is rising later and setting earlier every day, leaving us in womb-like darkness longer. The stillness of winter is coming, and it is a good time to reflect.
On September 8, 2013, Dawn Longenecker, Emily Owsley and Shumye Gebrehiwot read their membership commitment to the 8th day Faith Community. Dawn moved into membership as an intern member. Emily and Shumye moved into membership as community members.
At Eighth Day we commit to remaining a member for only a year at a time. Our recommitment ceremony is ordinarily on Pentecost Sunday. In the weeks before Pentecost, we make a active decisioin whether we want to recommit to the church and to our regular spiritual disciplines or not. Our intention is that our recommitment is a deliberate and conscious choice rather than a habit.
