Who We Are

Worship services are offered at 8:30, 9:45 and 11:00 a.m. every Sunday. Each service lasts about sixty minutes. Worship is our response to God, and it takes on many different forms. During each worship service, we strive to see God as we praise Him through uplifting and encouraging music. Then we hear God through a message from the Bible, so that we might grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Finally, we have a time for each person to respond to God by either committing one’s life to Christ, placing one’s membership, or taking Communion as we remember the sacrifice of our Savior, Jesus Christ.


History of Fair Haven

Fair Haven Christian Church was founded in 1953, having a vision to embrace the ideals of the restoration church, guided only by the Holy Spirit and the Holy Scriptures. The church enjoyed growth and expansion, with relocation from a mile north of Trafalgar to the present site completed in 2000. Through God’s grace we continue to grow.
