Faith Lutheran Church welcomes you as a member of God's family. These ministries are for our mutual enrichment.
The ministries of Faith are all rooted in the Christian tradition of Sunday morning worship and Bible study.
Worship 9:00 am - Join us to receive a foretaste of the heavenly feast to come with praise music and hymns, Bible preaching, and the Lord's Supper.
Bible Study 10:00 am - Together, let's study what God has to say for our lives today. (Discontinued during pandemic.)
The mission of the church is to be transformational in its neighborhood. East Whittier is a majority Hispanic community filled with working families whom we meet in their every day lives in multiple ways through food distribution as well as prayer ministry and one on one ministries of compassion and mercy. If you would like to make a donation to this part of Faith's ministry, please CLICK HERE. Thank you!
BAPTISM: Infants, youth, adults - everyone is welcome to receive the gift of life by the administration of the waters of baptism. We baptize at our church or on the beach. It's up to you!
CONFIRMATION: When a person is confirmed, They're saying, "Yes I believe what your church teaches." Here at Faith we teach that a real, living relationship with Jesus Christ is essential for a person to not just survive but to thrive in this world. Please see the pastor for information on how you and your family can be confirmed in this faith.
MARRIAGE: Our pastor marries people who are involved in the ministry of Faith after a preparatory period involving engagement and premarital counseling.
FUNERAL: Please contact us for more information about how we might minister to you and those whom you love in the midst of your loss.
