This Sunday (November 29th) is the first Sunday in Advent.  We hear Jesus' words about "signs in the stars" and "distress among the nations". There will be "people fainting from fear of what is coming upon the world," he says.  Was he talking about now?  Sure seems like it.  In his sermon "How Much Longer?", Pastor Olson will explore the words of Jesus alongside the words of the prophet Jeremiah hundreds of years earlier, and ask whether these might be words of hope and promise rather than words of foreboding.  All are welcome to come and worship with our Faith Lutheran family as we begin to count down the days until the celebration of Christ's birth. 

"Thanksgiving Eve Worship" is offered Wednesday night, November 25th at 7pm.  Add meaning to your Thanksgiving gatherings and celebrations by intentionally taking time with your Faith family to thank God for the many blessings in your life.  Following the worship service there will be a "pie swap" in the fellowship hall.  Bring a pie to swap, and the recipe to go along with it.  (Additional pieces of pie will be served to all who attend!)
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 The group's next meeting will be the second Sunday of January.

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!
