Who We Are

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!

Our Services

What are services like?
Our traditional service starts at 8:45am on Sunday morning. At this service we draw on the rich liturgical tradition of the Lutheran Church, but you don't have to be a Lutheran to appreciate the beauty, depth, and richness of our worship life. The service is meaningful and alive with elements of both ancient traditions and contemporary practices. Generally we change the musical setting with the changing of the church seasons. We have learned a variety of liturgical settings (music which we sing weekly in our service), including an African American Gospel setting, a setting by contemporary composer Marty Haugen called "Now the Feast and Celebration", and several other settings found in our new worship hymnal "Evangelical Lutheran Worship". We believe you will find the music we share each Sunday joyful and inspiring. What to expect at the 11:00 Contemporary Service -A warm, loving welcome where you know that you can come just as you are. -Dress tends to be casual. -Friendly for all ages - you may very well spot kids dancing to the music. -Worship music is led by a talented, spirited Praise Band which plays a variety of music from contemporary Christian pop to Gospel Honky Tonk -Lay leadership is especially important - every Sunday a different member of Faith welcomes visitors and leads the congregation in prayer -A special message just for children (and children at heart). -We hear God's word in Scripture and learn to apply it to our lives in the sermon. -We share Jesus' meal together each week

What is the community like?
We are a church that prides itself as being friendly and loving. We hope that when you come to our services you feel inspired and a part of our church family from the very beginning.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Don't worry. We have a class led by one of the Pastor's about what it means to come to worship here at Faith. We also have small groups that dig into the Bible and that is a great place to learn what it means to be a follower of Christ.
