Faces of Faith: Schuyler County Church of Faith

On this week's Faces of Faith we take you to Lancaster where a local church has come a long way.
The Schuyler County Church of Faith was founded by Pastor Sonny Smyser and his wife in 2008.
The church started off in a little rented space in the downtown Lancaster square but when the number of members grew, they needed a bigger space. With the help of donations and the generosity of the community, the church purchased an old laundry mat and car wash building off of Washington Street, remodeled it, and now has a chapel that can fit more than 200 people.
"We would not be here without the support of everybody in Schuyler County. We think we should pay them back all we can every time we can, after all Jesus told us to love one another," Pastor Smyser said.
The remodeled church also has a Sunday school room and a kitchen/dining area.
The non-denominational church offers 2 services every Sunday morning at 8 and 10 and hosts a wide variety of community events including a Community Thanksgiving Lunch that they will be holding Thanksgiving Day at Noon.
