Ministries

Faith Lutheran Church welcomes you as a member of God's family. The following ministries are for our mutual enrichment in the body of Christ. 

SUNDAY MORNING

The ministries of Faith are all rooted in the Christian tradition of Sunday morning worship and Bible study. 

Traditional Worship 8:00 am

  • Liturgical worship, using the Lutheran Service Book, with Holy Communion (1st & 3rd Sundays), hymns, chanting, and Law-Gospel preaching

Contemporary Worship 10:45 am

  • A blended order of service with praise music and the traditional elements of worship, such as Law-Gospel preaching, the Creed, the Lord's Prayer, and Holy Communion (1st & 3rd Sundays)

Bible Study 9:30 am

5th Sunday Combined Service 9:00 am

  • Whenever there's a fifth Sunday in a month, we bring together the fellowship from both services for one special service featuring music from both traditions followed by a fellowship potluck. 

Pastoral Ministry 

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.
