the band of musicians supporting contemporary worship
services at Trinity Lutheran Church in Camp Hill. The band had
its inception when Trinity added a contemporary worship service
to traditional services. The new service was held in the chapel
on Saturday nights in January, 1997. For those initial services,
one musician provided vocal music accompanied by a boom box. At
the same time, the church council was planning for growth of the
service and soon purchased a professional sound system and
keyboard. In a matter of months, instrumentalists and vocalists
had volunteered their talents and while the number of people
attending these services was still small, the service outgrew
the chapel. The service was moved to the church sanctuary during
the early summer of 1997.
In February, 2001, the
contemporary service moved to Trinity's re-built Fellowship
Hall, slotted at 10:30 Sunday mornings. An 8:30 a.m.
contemporary worship service was added in September 2010 as a
consequence of growth in attendance. Trinity completed a
renovation of Fellowship Hall in March 2012 to improve sound,
lighting and video. FaithX continues to support both services,
now attended by an average of 280 people every Sunday.
FaithX plays music selected
from recordings by popular Christian music artists, contemporary
Christian songbooks, and from Lutheran hymnbooks and music
resources. They also write original music. The band members do
all song arrangements. The extensive music repertoire of the
band reflects the time and effort spent in rehearsal and worship
As an important element in
outreach efforts at Trinity, FaithX occasionally supports
services at other churches and community events.
