Welcome to Faith
Faith Lutheran Church is a small, welcoming congregation where you can explore faith on your own terms. Here are some frequently asked questions about worshiping at Faith.
What do you believe?
We are proudly Christians in the Lutheran tradition and members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, a mainline Protestant church. We hold in common beliefs that unite all Christians, with a special emphasis on God's saving grace as articulated by Martin Luther. While we are distinctively Lutheran, we welcome all members of the community to explore their faith with us. There are no spiritual 'glass ceilings'; we believe that all people are beloved children of God and should be welcomed into the life of the Church.
What is the service like?
Our services generally last one hour or less with weekly Communion (sometimes called the Lord's Supper or the Eucharist), prayer, hymns, Scripture readings, and a sermon. All may receive communion. As Lutherans, we are a liturgical church, meaning that we have an order for public worship. Our order of worship is printed in the bulletin and you can follow along as you are comfortable. You can watch recent services on our Worship page to get an idea of worshiping at Faith is like.
Immediately after the service, we have a fellowship time with coffee. We would love to meet you there and learn how we can help on your spiritual journey.
Is there a dress code?
Absolutely not! You will find people wearing business casual, casual, and traditional Sunday attire. Please wear what makes you comfortable.
Do you have childcare during services?
Yes, we have child care on Sundays during church school (9:15 AM) and worship service (10:30 AM). You are welcome to bring children into the worship service as well.
Are you an open and affirming congregation?
Yes, we welcome our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer (LGBTQ+) siblings with open arms. All people, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression, are welcome to attend, take Communion, and participate in the Church's life and mission. We have a gender-neutral restroom and use expansive language to describe the Divine.
