Summer Sunday School Resumes Next Week
Throughout the summer, families with Sunday School-age children are invited to bring children directly to the Fellowship Hall before the 9:30 service. There, we’ll have a variety of fun activities planned. Then children will join their parents in worship during the offering. Learn more.
Faith’s Rejuvenation Process Continues
This past week, work began to update and brighten the Jackson Street entrance with new ceiling, lighting, and paint. We request that people not use this entrance for a few weeks, but the noticeable improvements will be worth it! We’ll continue to see transformation in our fellowship space throughout the summer. Painting of the building’s exterior trim will begin in early July as well, now that new gutters have been installed and repairs have been made to the roof. Be sure to check out the progress each Sunday when you come for worship!
Sunday, July 17, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Join on us as we celebrate the joy of the warm summer months with a church picnic. Filled with activities for the entire family, we look forward to this time each year. With three services on Sunday morning sometimes it’s hard to see just how much Faith is growing. We supply the meat, you supply a side (A-M), dessert (N-Z), or appetizer to pass. This is a great time to not only come together with your church family, but also to meet someone new and get to know those that have started calling Faith Lutheran their second home.
