Faith Lutheran Church
Wednesdays in Lent
Dinner to be held from 5:30-6:30 with Lenten services to follow from 6:30 - 7:15.
The 5 Wednesdays to follow will explore the different emotions that we have, creatively giving voice to the 5 main emotions in the children’s movie “Inside Out.”  
March 8: Pastor John, Joy, John 15:1-11
Mar 15: Vicki Bohling-Philippi, Fear, Matthew 14:22-32
Mar 22: Toree Rees, Sadness, John 11:17-36
Mar 29: Kyrstin Schwartz, Anger, John 2:13-22
Apr 5: Josh Blair, Disgust, John 13:1-10
All of our emotions make up who we are. These reflections will weave the gospel stories with the emotions that they evoke. I’m excited to hear from each of our guest preachers! Finally, we will have the music of Holden Evening Prayer featured each week and Sue Brogger, our kitchen coordinator, will be making wonderful homemade soups that are served from 5:30-6:30. We hope that you are able to make it and tell others about what is happening at Faith! Happy Lent!

Voices of the Faith Community  
 Welcome to Faith!  In June 2016, the Faith Church Council commissioned a work group to develop a Welcome Statement for Faith. The intent of a welcoming statement is to welcome and affirm all people who seek the grace and love of God as visitors and members of our congregation. This welcoming statement would be a part of the process of building an inclusive worship environment and would build on Pastor John’s sermon on May 1st and his June Forward in Faith article on “how our congregation can respond with open arms to all who are seeking peace, love or compassion”.   READ MORE!
