Worship with Us! Traditional- 8:45am, Contemporary- 11:00 am

If you only had the faith of a tiny mustard seed...!  How often have we read those words of scripture and felt convicted by them.  Convicted because the end of the sentence tells us we could make mountains jump or big trees leap into the ocean.  And that's if we had the TINIEST bit of faith.  How many of us can say we have that kind of faith -- so great that we can move mountains with it?  If that's not you, then does that mean you have faith that's even weaker than weak?  How much faith does one need?  How much faith does Jesus ask/expect us to have?  What IS even the weakest of faith able to do?  This Sunday we're going to tackle these very difficult words of Jesus, and explore what he meant when he told his disciples they could uproot a mulberry tree and plant it in the ocean if they only had a little bit of faith.  Yikes!  Pastor Olson's sermon is titled "Vaccinium Ovatum".  All are welcome at Faith Lutheran Church!   

8:45am (traditional) and 11am (contemporary).  

Questions to ponder:  What is "faith"?  Why is it important?  What does even the tiniest bit of faith accomplish?  How does one "get" faith?  What were the disciples asking when they begged Jesus to "increase our faith"?  How, ultimately, does one "increase" their faith -- and how do you know when it's been "increased"?  When would the disciples finally know that they arrived in their faith life?  How do YOU know?

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 second Sunday of October.

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!
