Faith Beats

A podcast from First Presbyterian Church in Ann Arbor, MI

Sponsored by Youth and Families Ministries.


Faith Beats is new to the broadcast world and we hope you will enjoy listening to our conversation. Faith Beats is a podcast about the questions of life and rhythms of faith, community, and imagination, through the narrative lens of storytelling, arts, and spiritual practices. New releases drop on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month. Each episode will use a different medium to take a unique approach of exploring how faith intersects our lives.
