Confirmation News

Night of 8th Grade Questioning—All are invited to attend the evening of questioning for our 8th grade confirmation students. The rite of questioning is a major moment for our 8th grade Midweek students and they would be so appreciative of your support. Join us Wednesday, April 25th at 6:30 p.m. in the sanctuary.

Confirmation group picture will be taken at 6:00pm. Students who are getting individual pictures taken should be at church at 5:30pm. 

Good Shepherd Sunday

This Sunday is “Good Shepherd Sunday.” The appointed Psalm for the day is Psalm 23, which is among the most well-known psalms. The Gospel from John 10 records Jesus revealing Himself as the Good Shepherd. While fewer and fewer people are familiar with what it is like to take care of sheep, this metaphor of God’s protection and provision has become a great source of comfort and hope. May God grant that you find such blessed comfort as you dwell securely here in the house of the Lord. Pastor Rajek's sermon for this Sunday is titled "No Other Name" based on Acts 4:1-12. See you Sunday!

Sandal Funeral

It is Christian joy and hope mixed with sadness as funeral services were held Wednesday for Evelyn Sandal. She was 104 years old and was a member of our congregation. One of her daughters was Marlene Young. Thank you for your continued prayers for the Sandal family.

Voter's Meeting

We will be having a VOTER'S MEETING on May 6, 2018 at noon. On the agenda will be the election of officers. Lunch will be served. Please plan on attending. Thank you.

Faith Lutheran is again planning to have a men’s softball team. We need a few more players to fill the roster. If you are interested in joining the team, please contact Dennis Ryckman as soon as possible. Must have parent’s permission if under 18.

Sunday Morning Worship - 4/15/2018

Saturday, April 14, 2018

We may have a tendency to think of repentance as a painful thing, as something to dread and avoid at all costs. After all, repentance means admitting we were wrong. It may be embarrassment, guilt, shame, or pride that makes repentance difficult. Yet you have probably experienced the joy of repentance as well, the relief of confessing your sins, the wonder of grace that flows to us in forgiveness. You may be holding on to a dark secret or a stubborn grudge. Bring your heavy burdens to the Lord today. He has forgiven you and has called you His beloved child.

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Cory J. Rajek's message is titled “Touch and See” based on Luke 24:36-49.

Sunday Morning Worship - 4/8/2018

Saturday, April 7, 2018

Thomas is seldom remembered for anything other than his doubt. In our quest to find relatable biblical characters, we often leave Thomas as a man who needed evidence—proof. We may miss his bold confession: “My Lord and my God!” While the other ten disciples had seen Jesus eight days earlier, none of them confessed as Thomas did. And none of them believed until Jesus appeared to them and spoke His Word to them. Focus today not on Thomas’s doubt but rather on his confession of faith.

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Cory J. Rajek's message is titled “Time To Work” based on John 20:19-31.

Easter Sunday Worship - 8:20 AM and 11:00 AM

Friday, March 30, 2018

Christ is risen! Blessings to you this Easter Sunday. The Bible teaches many things, and all are important. But the Epistle today from 1 Corinthians 15 speaks about what is of first importance: that Christ died for our sins, that He was buried, and that He has been raised, in accordance with the Scriptures. As we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, we focus on those things of first importance.

Please join us for Easter Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Cory J. Rajek's message is titled “Welcome Home” based on Mark 16:1-8.  Easter Brunch will be between services.

Sunday Morning Worship - 3/25/2018

Friday, March 23, 2018

This Sunday often seems caught between two poles. On one hand, we recall Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem to the shouts of hosanna. On the other hand, the Gospel seems to jump the gun at Holy Week and tell the whole story nearly a week ahead. The Epistle forms a bridge between the two, reminding us that Jesus did not enter for the accolades of the crowd but to be obedient unto death, even death on a cross, to save us. The crowd’s welcome was prophetic in this regard—calling on Him who would save them, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” Today we add our voices in welcome, knowing that in order to save us from sin and its death, our Lord had to suffer in our place on the cross and die in our place to set us free from sin and its death. What a great entrance into Holy Week!

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Cory J. Rajek's message is titled “Blessed Be the King” based on Zechariah 9:9-12.

Sunday Morning Worship - 3/18/2018

Friday, March 16, 2018

Over the years, Jesus’ twelve apostles have been assigned different symbols or “shields,” which bear emblems that remind us of an aspect of their life. The symbol often used for John, one of the sons of Zebedee, is a chalice with a serpent in it. This unflattering symbol comes from today’s Gospel, where John and his brother James ask to sit at Jesus’ right and left hand. Jesus responds, “The cup that I drink you will drink” (Mark 10:39a). John does not understand what He asks for. But in time he will see that Jesus will drink from the cup of suffering, the cup of death, the cup filled with the sin of the world—because it was the will of His Father. Thanks be to God that Jesus drank this cup for John and for us to give salvation.

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Cory J. Rajek's message is titled “The Key To Godly Greatness” based on Mark 10:35-45.

Sunday Morning Worship - 3/11/2018

Fiery serpents. Snakebites. Death from poisonous venom. A bronze serpent atop a pole. This sounds more like a scene out of Hollywood than out of the Bible! Yet, these are all part of the picture that unfolds in today’s Old Testament Reading, where we encounter the elements of sin, punishment, repentance, and rescue. This all might make for a confusing script, except Jesus sheds light on what it all means. “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him may have eternal life” (John 3:14–15). We should see ourselves in this account, but more important, we should see our Savior.

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Terry Nassz's message is titled “The Journey for Life ” based on John 3:14-21.

Sunday Morning Worship - 3/4/2018

Saturday, March 3, 2018

Perhaps it was as David gazed into the sky with a sense of wonder and awe that the Holy Spirit inspired him to write the words of today’s Psalm, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork” (Psalm 19:1). When we turn our eyes heavenward and see the brightness of the sun, the glow of the moon, or the multitude of stars, we can sense that there is more than meets the eye. Creation reveals that a Creator must be behind this wonderment! God’s Word shows us that creation bears witness to the triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. David is right, “the heavens declare the glory of God.”

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Cory J. Rajek's message is titled “In the Presence of God” based on John 2:13-22.

Sunday Morning Worship - 2/25/2018

Saturday, February 24, 2018

When it comes to human love, it’s fair to say that it comes in different degrees. For instance, even with just a little love for someone, you might be willing to help carry some groceries or get their mail while they’re out of town. But if you have a greater love for someone, you might be open to caring for them when they’re sick or helping them move into a new home. The greatest demonstration of love, however, is to lay down your life for someone else. There’s no greater sacrifice one can make for another. And yet, that’s exactly what Jesus did for us, even though so often we are unloving and unlovable people. “But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Joshua Baumann's message is titled ““Serving Jesus Christ Now and Always” ” based on Joshua 24:14-15.
