All are welcome!  Come as you are!

10/17- Dueling with Dual Citizenship -- As you may already know, I will be moving from West Olympia to Lacey on Saturday (Thanks Men of Faith for your help!), which means my computer will be coming down later this week and won't be back up until later on Monday the 23rd.  Which is a long way of saying, I have to do my sermon early (or handwrite it!).  Should be easy though -- what's more certain than death and taxes, right? This is the story where they try to trick Jesus asking: "Tell us, then, what you think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not?”  Now THAT"S a loaded question if I ever heard one!  (If I were Jesus, I would punt this one over to Matthew himself; after all he was once a tax-collector!) Come see what I make of it between the packing of boxes.  Join us at worship!   All are welcome! 

Lutheran Disaster Response Giving Challenge
Last month, Bishop Jaech announced that the Synod was giving $20,000 to the ELCA Lutheran Disaster Response for Hurricane Relief and challenged congregations to join in to match that amount.  You took that to heart!!  As of October 6th, congregations and their members have given $13,405!  Keep up the good and necessary work!

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 Milks' office.  

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!
