Our Services

What are services like?
Worship is centered around the Word (scripture, preaching, mutual consolation) and Sacraments (Holy Communion ever Sunday and remembering our Baptism). We use many different liturgical settings and are blessed with a very talented set of musicians. We use a "bluegrass liturgy" any month in which there are five Sundays. We welcome and include children and youth in worship and provide a nursery for those too young to sit through a whole service. In the fall of 2012 we are using the Narrative Lectionary - the story of God's action in the world from Genesis through Revelation.

What is the community like?
The community that gathers at Faith Lutheran Church is a diverse group of fun loving and friendly people. We like to celebrate...and eat! Among our annual festivities and gifts to the community at large are Mardi Gras with authentic Cajun cuisine, and Germanfest with traditional German food, and Oompah Band and beer tasting. Lebanon is the county seat of Wilson county in Middle Tennessee. Many people who live in this community work in Nashville. Cumberland College and the headquarters of Cracker Barrel are located in Lebanon.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You are welcome. A tenant of Lutheran theology is that God acts on our behalf through Jesus Christ. Come and explore and experience what that means for you. You will never be pressured to "make a decision for Christ" because we believe Christ has already made a decision for you! This is a place where you would be welcome to be a part of Christian community and learn how that might help you make meaning for your life and the world in which you live, work and play.
