Faith Episcopal Church is located in Cameron Park, California, United States, just off of U.S. Route 50 in the California Gold Country foothills region. Parishioners come from Sacramento, Folsom, El Dorado Hills and the Placerville area. The parish is located in a modern church building completed in 2003, housing a congregation that started as a mission group in the home of Father Kent S. McNair. In the spring of 2001 Faith Church became a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California.[2] Faith Church is the youngest parish in the Diocese.

The single church building is designed as a multi-functional facility with sanctuary, library, multi-purpose rooms, and administrative offices. The master plan for the 10-acre (40,000 m2) site includes a chapel, a columbarium, a dedicated sanctuary and a Christian education building.

History[edit]

On Easter Sunday 1992, Faith Church held its first public service in a storefront building about two miles (3 km) from the current parish location. For almost 11 years, Faith Church grew steadily, eventually outgrowing its space. In 2003, the parish moved into a newly constructed church building on the current site.[3]

Mission Today[edit]

Faith Church is an active Christian community composed of people from many Christian traditions. We strive to live out the following values: The Christian faith is taken seriously; Children are welcome and families are supported; the Episcopal tradition shapes our faith; we help each other find and live out our calling; we care for others outside the church.
