Lily Olson recently distributed the hats that Faith collected to the children at an orphanage in Tanzania. Thank you, Faith Lutheran, for your support and love!
Our youth are on a mission trip to Alabama this week. Every day one or two youth send an email update about their day to all of the parents. Please lift up these young missionaries in prayer as God works through them. Hi Eveyone!!! It's Macy and Madie Roberts! We are a part of "The... Continue Reading →
Most people tend to work out too hard. Exercise should make you feel good. It promotes circulation, which in turn brings nutrients to parts of our bodies that might be getting a little worn. Like joints for example, gentle exercise helps to decrease the pain of osteo-arthritis. To our brains, it creates a chemical change... Continue Reading →
Over the next 6 weeks, we will be studying the deeper questions of faith through some of the common phrases about faith. You’ve heard them—you may have even used some of them. Phrases like “God said it, I believe it, that settles it” and “Everything Happens for a Reason.” How do we use these phrases... Continue Reading →

We continue to lift up Faith member Amy Mihelich who is serving in Rwanda. Thank you, Amy, for sharing your stories with our Faith community.
Thibaut greets me in the library (and then agrees to stage this photo)
I’ve always valued words above all other forms of communication. Living in Rwanda, however, has taught me that words are only one way to connect with others. Rwandans often speak quietly, and many times they will hold an entire conversation without facing one another. While they may not always hold eye-contact, they often physically hold one another.
I don’t think I ever realized how comforting it can be to receive a hug from someone who cares about me. The combination of my cultural context, living situation, and general social awkwardness means that sometimes I will go weeks without much more physical human contact than a handshake. You’d better believe that during the sharing of the peace at church on Sundays, I’m going in for the classic “hug and THEN a handshake” maneuver (emphasis on the hug).

On Sunday, May 28, we tried something NEW! It was exciting and unique—we had small tables in the front of the sanctuary, by the baptismal font, for younger kids to sit closer to the front. The front row was open for parents to sit nearby and monitor things like sharing and the use of “worship... Continue Reading →

Numbers 6: 24-26 “The... Continue Reading →
