Letter from missionaries, Dr. Steve and Jodi Swanson
Notices and Updates
*Important Update: The church council and worship and music ministries have had several discussions regarding going forward in regards to worship. First of all, the recorded services have been well received. In fact, in some ways we are reaching more people than we did before. However, we are also very aware of how being physically separated is an ongoing challenge. We hunger for fellowship, but we also know we need to be as safe as possible for the love of neighbor. Common sense is a gift we are trying to nurture.
So, what we are planning to do for the near future is to continue our online worship services, but also have a parking lot service on Wednesday Evenings at 7:00p.m., beginning on June 3. Worship literature will be posted on the home page of the website for use during the service. You can either stay in your car or bring lawn chairs and sit by your car or maybe in your pick-up bed. If you choose to use your lawn chairs please do not mingle and respect the physical distancing standards. It will be a shorter more informal service. You will need to follow directions in regards to parking so we can organize the space for as many as possible while maintaining appropriate distance. We can park in our parking lot, the street, and the St. Francis Health Organization parking lot. We will have a flatbed trailer with a sound system parked by the parking lot door that will help for visibility and sound projection.
If you aren’t feeling well or are considered a vulnerable person, please stay home.
*Driveway, porch, deck, or window visit? If you would like to have a visit outside on a nice day let Pastor know and we can arrange something. Send Pastor an email (see Contact Us tab above) or call the church at 589-2970.
*The second Sunday of each month will be Communion Sunday. Communion kits are available at the street enterance of the church. Instructions and details are in the "Letter's from Pastor Dell" link above (05/06/20)
*E-Giving now available on the "Members/E-Giving" tab above. Please remember your weekly/monthly tithe during this season of change
*All Worship services will be posted on the "Worship Video" link above until further notice
Congregational Theme Verse
Empowered by the Holy Spirit, Faith Lutheran Church is a community of believers striving to invite and welcome people to faith in Jesus Christ; nurture and equip people with a living faith in response to God's love; send disciples into our prairie communities and beyond in Christ's service.
"Faith Lutheran is a community of believers living out our faith
in daily life."
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God - not the result of works so that no one may boast. For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.
~ Ephesians 2:8-10
