Rumors of Jesus' resurrection from the grave are beginning to spread.  Meanwhile, his disciples are locked behind barricaded doors for fear of their own safety.  Somehow Jesus miraculously appears in their midst.  How interesting that his very first words are, "Peace be with you" as if nothing out of the ordinary has happened!  Can you even imagine how stunned and staggered they must have been to experience the unbelievable?  One disciple was not present when it happened, though.  We've come to call him "doubting Thomas" for his insistence that "unless I see with my own eyes -- and unless I touch the place where the nails went into his hands and feet -- I will not believe!"  This Sunday's gospel story is about the impact Jesus made on those frightened and paranoid disciples, and the importance of moving beyond fears and setbacks.  Pastor Olson's message is titled "Threatened".  All are welcome!  Come as you are!

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 14th of May.

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.  (Our last two gatherings for awhile will be April 21st and May 5th.)

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!
