Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I:
Schedule a Visit with the Pastor?
It's pretty easy to meet with Pastor Erica. You can reach her this way:
Join the Congregation?
Again, get in touch with Pastor Erica. She'll be very happy to meet with you and describe the process for you. Basically, joining Faith Lutheran is pretty simple:
Enroll in Sunday School?
If you want to enroll your child(ren) in our Sunday School program you can come to the Church Office most any Sunday and talk with one of the Sunday School Staff. They will help you find class where they belong, introduce you to the teacher and begin helping your child(ren) get settled in. There's a registration form that will be important for you to fill out too, so we have some needed information about your family.
Enroll in Confirmation?
Confirmation is an educational process where we gather around our children in grades 7 - 10, for the purpose of providing them support from their peers and other adults in the congregation during that challenging time of growth and maturation. In the process we also seek to help them learn about how the Bible and Luther's Small Catechism can help them in their life of faith.
Confirmation classes are held on Wednesday nights from 7:15 - 8:30 (immediately following our Wednesday night services) according to the following plan:
Please review the Requirements for Confirmation for additional information about this important educational ministry.
Schedule a Baptism?
Baptism is the entry rite into the Christian family. Since Baptism is one of the ways we receive children and adults into the fellowship of Faith Lutheran Church, it must be celebrated within one of the scheduled worship services of the congregation.
The first step in scheduling a Baptism is call the church office (775-4141) so Christine can help you to set up an appointment with the pastor to discuss our Lutheran theology of Baptism and walk through how Baptism is done here at Faith Lutheran. During that conversation, a specific date and time for the Baptism is scheduled.
Attached is the Baptismal Information Form we use to gather the identifying information needed. It's helpful if you download it and bring it with you when you come to meet with the pastor, but you can also it out during at the time of their appointment with pastor. Take special note that we need the addresses of the sponsors you've chosen so we may be in contact with them for the Baptismal day.
Plan for a Wedding?
We want to work with you to make your wedding a meaningful worship service that will add God's blessing to your relationship and enhance the lives of those you've invited to share your special day with you. We will engage you in a process though which we will seek to prepare you for your wedding and prepare you for your marriage. You will find it helpful to read An Introduction to Wedding Planning for a full description of this process, as well as lots of resources for planning your wedding.
The first step in scheduling a wedding is to contact Pastor Erica to set up an appointment to get acquainted with her, discuss our approach to doing weddings, and decide if you would like to move forward, at which time we would schedule the date for your wedding.
