      11:00am -- Contemporary worship w/ Holy Communion
Let your "yes" be "yes", and your "no" be "no".  Sounds like a simple concept, right?  Sadly, we fall miserably short in our interactions with others -- even in "deals" we make with ourselves.  I said I was going to avoid bring work home last week.  In fact, I made that very promise.  Will I bring work home?  No!  (The real answer probably should have been, "I'll try not to, but I probably won't make it.")  I was asked to do something important this coming Friday.  I said an immediate "yes".  All the while, I knew in my brain that the correct answer was, "Only if I can clear something else from my schedule" -- something for which I told yet another person "yes".  In truth, it's a little more difficult than it sounds to let your "yes" be "yes" and your "no" be "no".  In this Sunday's gospel reading, Jesus directs his followers to be honest and truthful in their dealings with others -- to strive for integrity in their word.  In the Old Testament reading, Moses stands on the verge of entering the Promised Land, where he invites God's people to "choose life".  We'll explore these two stories in worship this Sunday, and consider together what they have to do with our lives today.  Pastor Olson's sermon is titled, "What You Worship, You Become".  Join our loving and friendly Faith family for worship and fellowship.  All are welcome!

SUPPORT GROUPS:  Faith Lutheran Church currently offers a support group for cancer survivors, cancer patients, cancer care-givers, and all others interested in being part of a close-knit group focused on encouraging and supporting one another in their experiences with cancer.  The group is called Second Sunday Support" and meets the 2nd Sunday of each month in Pastor Olson's office.  The group's next meeting will be the 12th of February.

Each Friday morning you are invited to "Pepsi With The Pastor" -- a time of conversation and discussion centered on a topic of current interest or significance.  Following the 11 o'clock gathering, we share lunch together at a local restaurant.  Come for the fellowship, come for the Pepsi (and coffee, too), come ready to have your opinions and ideas stretched a bit by the views of others.  Though we may not always agree on things, we always find our friendships deepened, and our respect broadened for each other.  And we usually manage to get in a good laugh or two!  Treat yourself to "Pepsi With The Pastor", Fridays at 11am at the church.

Welcome Home!

Many people today are restless, searching for a way to find meaning in a world that often leaves us with more questions than answers.  Saint Augustine once wrote, "Our souls are restless, until they rest in Thee." 

We at Faith Lutheran Church would be honored to journey with you as we learn together what it means to rest in our Creator and follow our Savior, Jesus Christ.  It is not an easy journey, but it is one filled with joy, discovery, and grace beyond measure.

We welcome you to our church, our worship services and our lives.  We hope and pray that you will experience in us the love of God, which is the greatest power in the world, and that you will join us in sharing that love with a world in need.  WELCOME HOME!
