Faith United Methodist Church

Faith United Methodist Church had its start in 1880 when Rev. F. W. Voegelein visited Sacramento with the hopes of starting a church for German immigrants.

In 1961, the church and its adjoining property at 10th and P Streets were sold to the State of California as part of a State Master Plan. On March 6, 1964, the congregation voted to purchase the property at 36th and J Streets from Fremont Presbyterian Church. The first Sunday service was held in the new church on June 7, with the art glass window, “The Good Shepherd,” from the old church was installed in the chapel. Another name change was brought about in 1968 with the merger of the Methodist Episcopal and Evangelical United Brethren denominations: Faith United Methodist Church.
