Faith Lutheran Church’s

Building Expansion  Project

Dedication September 29, 2013

 

September 29th was also the 50th Anniversary of the groundbreaking for Faith Lutheran Church. 

 These are exciting times for us as the people of God in Faith Lutheran Church! 

A great deal of energy and effort has been devoted to engage you in helping us

explore and discover what God is up to in our midst.  We've learned that there is much ministry that needs doing, not just for our congregation but for the community in which we live. 

 

   

as we move faithfully forward in mission, ministry and growth. 

 A little over three years ago, Faith Lutheran Church took "a leap of Faith" and immersed itself into the Experience Faith Capital Appeal.  The congregation set its sights on an expanded facility, additional staffing,  and increased mission and ministry opportunities.

 

Since that time, Faith Lutheran Church has grown: 

  • Pastor Erica Cunningham, Pastor Nicole Welke were called as pastors

  • Nicolle Behnke was called as the Youth and Family Ministry Coordinator. 

  • The building addition was completed, with an elevator and additional bathrooms for greater access for everyone.

  • The expanded Gathering Space encourages fellowship with a welcome desk, fellowship area and other furnishings.
  • Projection and video systems enhance worship and communication.
  • A large group meeting room accommodates groups from Faith and the community.
  • A new outdoor electronic sign invites all who see it to come in and experience Faith.

 

There is even more "growing" as Faith's members work to answer God's call to greater mission and ministry by offering:

  • Meeting the needs of area families through it's monthly open food pantry
  • Actively supporting a Habitat for Humanity home that is being built near the church.
  • Offering several small group opportunities - Bible study, card playing, book club and Soup for Souls, for example.
  • Planning mission and outreach trips for our youth.
  • Three weekly worship services provide joyful, engaging and dynamic praise to God.
  • Encouragement of financial support and participation in medical mission trips.
  • Benevolent giving of 3 percent from the Capital Appeal income.
    • ....and the list continues!

The appeal process began with prayer and there continues to be the need for prayerful support of all that has become a reality at Faith Lutheran Church and all that will be happening in the future.  101 families from Faith have already answered God's call in these life-changing possibilities, resulting in more than $411,000 being pledged toward our $1.1 million Capital Appeal goal.

 

We invite you to join us in the vision of moving Faith forward

in its mission, ministry and growth!

 

is all about giving our ministry the capacity to more fully live out our God-given mission: 

We are committed to Sharing God's Word, Showing God's Love and Serving God's World. 

It is a bold and life-giving effort to help us keep growing as individuals and an congregation.

It is exciting to imagine the impact we can have as we move forward!

As we EXPERIENCE FAITH...  in our weekly worship,

we will consider how importation it is that we:

Each week a member of our congreation shared a part of his/her faith story. 

Click here  to read the devotional booklet containing those and many other member's stories that will spark your imagination about what God is calling us to be and do

- as individuals and a congregation.

We are very thankful to have you as a partner in our journey of bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ into our community and the world.  In the coming months, as we EXPERIENCE FAITH... together, pray and take time to give special and prayerful consideration to see how God is leading you to support these new ministry opportunities at Faith Lutheran Church.
