No RSVP Needed This Week

You will NOT need to RSVP for the 8, 9:30 or 11 worship services this weekend, June 6.  For the last month, worshipers have been spread out across the three services, and we haven’t had to move anyone.  Furthermore, there will be no need for an RSVP the following week, June 13, because we will have enough capacity for everyone in the new configuration. Which brings us to…

Service Time Change on June 13

The Elders recently announced that starting on June 13, we will have TWO services on Sunday morning at 8:15 and 11:00 a.m.  Both services will be mask-optional in the center sections and mask-required in the wing sections. No RSVP Needed going forward. Sunday School for children and adults will be 9:45-10:45 a.m. (mask-optional).

VBS 2021 will be June 7th—11th

Review of the Christian Faith/New Member Class

taught by Pastors Pohland & Crowe  (Room B-120)

Are you interested in the basics of the Christian faith?
Are you curious about the actual tenets of Lutheran Christianity?
Are you wanting to become a member of Faith Lutheran Church?
Then this class is for you!
Non-members welcome!    Members…great refresher course!


A Survey of the Old Testament

taught by Dr. Ron Swanson  (Activity Center)

 Whether you have been reading the Bible for years or are barely familiar with its contents, this overview will help you see the development of God’s story of salvation.  It will help knit together the two testaments and demonstrate that the Bible is a single book with a single theme.  Many Christians shy away from a close reading of the Old Testament and think it is too complicated and too difficult to understand.  This course will provide a structure on which to build your knowledge and understanding of the Old Testament.  It will focus on selected central characters, themes and events that will make your reading of the entire Bible come alive.


Parenting Class – Nurturing our Children’s Faith

taught by Dedie Wright  (B-116)

As parents, we take care of our children’s basic physical needs, such as food, shelter, clothing, medical care, etc.

As parents, we take care of our children’s basic emotional needs, such as giving them love, attention, understanding, acceptance, time, and support.

And as Christian parents we are called to take care of our children’s basic spiritual needs. This class will help equip parents to better:

  • Build a solid foundation of faith with the instructive writings found in Luther’s Small Catechism
  • Communicate the important teachings of the Christian faith, from a Lutheran perspective
  • Share their faith in Jesus, and love for Him, in ways that children can understand and apply to their lives.

The class is not only instructional, but interactive, fun, and engaging! JOIN US!!
