About Us

About Faith Lutheran Church


Welcome!  God's Son Jesus Christ died on the cross for all sins,  and He was raised from the dead to affirm God's declaration of forgiveness. In Holy Baptism we receive the benefits  of God's act of grace.  We rejoice with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ--their Lord and ours. We celebrate God's on-going distribution of forgiveness in the Lord's Supper.  

Through Word and Sacrament, the Holy Spirit has nurtured believers and reached the hearts of many neighbors. We have been a launching pad for newly baptized and a way-station for Christians passing  through.  Our Food Pantry has helped many.  Our Vacation Bible School rocks!  From the VBS nine cousins that were baptized in 2014 form our youth group that meets every Saturday at 2 PM. We had another good session of VBS  last month. On  August 18 we had a School Supply Social. Some 21  VBS students got a backpack of supplies. We used funds from Thrivent Action plan to buy backpacks.  On August 26 we received into membership Tom and Kathi Gilland, and after the service had a reception to honor them and also Tom and Brenda Anderson who joined August 5. 

Faith Lutheran Church was chartered in 1940 and is a member of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, Southeastern District. For more information about what we believe and the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, please vist www.LCMS.org.
