We are a family oriented, traditional, Christ centered congregation of approximately 165 members with a rich history in the community. We are a member of the Lutheran-Church Missouri Synod. This means that we accept and preach the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian church; essentially, that we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone. We believe in the love of the Triune God: the Father, Creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became flesh to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the trinity are coequal and co-eternal, and constitute one God.
What to Expect:
Welcome! We’ve been praying you’d join us!
Yes, really! We know that visiting a new place can be scary, but we promise we don’t bite! We actually think guests are a pretty big deal, and we’ve pulled out all the stops to ensure your experience is a great one! In case you’re still not convinced, we’ve compiled some frequently asked questions and answers to put your mind at ease.
How long does a service last?
A typical worship service lasts about one hour.
What is a divine service?
The LCMS does a fantastic job of unpacking the details of a divine service on their website.
What should I wear?
We believe that what’s on your inside matters most! And, although we’re all unworthy of God’s great love, He wants you to come as you are . . . and so do we. That’s why the dress code runs the gamut! Some worshipers are more decked out than others. There will be people in skirts and slacks. You’ll find others in khakis, jeans and even shorts. No worries about your wardrobe!
What about my kids?
Jesus loves children and so do we! God put the wiggle in children; don’t feel that you need to suppress it in God’s house. All are welcome here!
The presence of children is a gift to the Church; they are the future of God’s Church on Earth!
Remember: Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Luke 18:16
Here at Faith, we actually have been praying for you! But we’re not perfect. So please forgive us if we don’t knock your socks off on the first visit. (It won’t be for lack of trying!) Although we’re super nice, we’re still sinners too! (See? You’ve met your match! We’re the perfect church for those who are not, well...perfect!) We ask for patience and understanding, the benefit of the doubt, and the chance to keep trying. We’ll get it right, we promise! We consider you--and all guests--great gifts from God! And we can’t wait to see you in worship!
We also have a fully functioning nursery/cry room with a viewing window so you can continue to hear or watch the service while caring for your little one.
Infants and Small Children during bible study?
Don't hesitate. Bring them! We love children and will make accommodations as needed.
Can I take Communion?
If you are not a member of the LCMS we would love to welcome you to the altar for a blessing from the Pastor and we encourage you to seek information from the Pastor or our Elders about membership of our denomination.
Coffee and Snacks?
We do offer coffee during our bible study and an occasional sweet treat. Please feel free to feed your children snacks as needed during the service.
