Faith Moves Maranatha Church, lo­cated at 161 Riverview Drive in Cal­houn, wel­comes the pub­lic to a spe­cial event, Col­lege Day In­for­ma­tion Ses­sion, on Sun­day, Feb. 4 at 1 p. m. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the fol­low­ing col­leges will be on hand at the church to dis­cuss their schools, what they of­fer and how to ap­ply: Dalton State Col­lege, Ken­ne­saw State Univer­sity, Ge­or­gia North­west­ern Tech­ni­cal Col­lege and Ge­or­gia High­lands.

The church’s se­nior pas­tor, Leyner Ar­gueta, said the fo­cus for his church is on com­mu­nity.

“Our church has de­cided to take on a monthly com­mu­ni­ty­fo­cused project for each month this year,” said Ar­gueta. “In the month of Fe­bru­ary, we have de­cided to team up with col­leges to pro­mote higher ed­u­ca­tion to our com­mu­nity.”

Any­one in the com­mu­nity is in­vited to at­tend, es­pe­cially stu­dents in high school in­ter­ested in fur­ther­ing their ed­u­ca­tion. “The event is open to any­one and every­one who is in­ter­ested in go­ing to col­lege,” said Ar­gueta. “We will of­fer trans­la­tion to Span­ish­s­peak­ing par­ents who do not speak English.”

Faith Moves Maranatha is truly one of a kind in the com­mu­nity. “Faith Moves was es­tab­lished as a multi- cul­tural, fully bilin­gual church,” said Ar­gueta. “It’s the only one that I know of in Gor­don County.

“We con­sider our­selves as a sup­port team for a be­liever and not a re­li­gious prac­tice just as some does on Sun­days,” said Ar­gueta. “Faith Moves started with one clear vi­sion- don’t talk about be­ing part of a church; we would rather have you ‘ Be the Church.’ The name ‘Faith Moves’ comes from the con­cept that if you be­lieve what you preach, you would do some­thing about it. Your faith should move you!”

The church ac­tively min­is­ters in the com­mu­nity and does var­i­ous lo­cal mis­sion projects, in­clud­ing or­ga­niz­ing a law en­force­ment prayer event last year at BB&T park in down­town Cal­houn.
