Everyone is welcome at Faith ELCA!
Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church, a family of God and a part of the Body of Christ, joyfully affirms God's love, word, and grace. We strive to follow Christ's example in the world. We therefore welcome ALL people, extend God's loving mercy, and nourish all who seek God's strength and support. Vibrant and engaging worship, inspiring proclamation, excellent music, extraordinary welcome, devoted outreach, and growing as the Body of Christ. This is Faith Lutheran.
Within the Faith Lutheran Community, you will always find yourself at home. We seek to be a center for ministry, carrying on faithfully in the example that Jesus Christ left for us - to love all people and to be a reflection of Christ's unconditional love in the world. Our focus begins in living the Word of God in the real world - to extend the loving arm of God to all, regardless of faith background, age, income, nationality, sexual orientation, gender and gender identity, and physicality. You are honored as a child of God at Faith Lutheran, and encouraged to grow with us as the Body of Christ.
Reconcilling in Christ Sunday
The ecumenical community which welcomes people of all sexual orientations and gender identities celebrates the last Sunday of January each year as “welcoming” Sunday. In the Lutheran tradition, we call this day RIC Sunday. Reconciling in Christ (RIC) is a program of Reconciling Works: Lutherans for Full Participation, begun in 1983 as a way for Lutheran communities of faith to answer the inclusive call of the Gospel by welcoming people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. RIC Sunday is a time for us to remember and recommit to the process of welcoming all to live in God's light.
Annual Financial Meeting - January 31st
Immediately following the single worship service on January 31st, we will have our ANNUAL FINANCIAL MEETING at approximately 11:00am. We will take a look at the 2015 financials and vote on the proposed budget for 2016. Everyone is encouraged to attend, especially those who are voting members.
