Regular Worship Hours:
9:00 AM Divine Service Worship
(Note) For the summer, we have the Eucharist the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month.
This will occur for June through September. If a Holy Day (like Trinity Sunday falls outside the 1st and 3rd, there will be the Eucharist).
Holy Communion is every Sunday (see above); it is so good and important to dine at the table of our Lord for spiritual strength and the forgiveness of sins.
Liturgy settings will vary, and see the Facebook site for updates.
Worship Type at Faith
We use LSB (the Lutheran Service Book) hymnal and all of its various settings. We respect and use the historic liturgies of Divine Worship. Pastor will always be vested, the Altar adorned in the finest we have, and the worship setting and music reflects the love for our Lord.
But mainly we are served by our Lord who gives us His Word, His love, His Body and Blood, and His forgiveness; these are the gifts in worship.
"Some" may call this "High Church", we call it Divine Worship to a Lord worthy of praise.
Yet we have included at times some more "up to date" and lively music, but you need to stop in and check it out...
Why worship with us?
Our worship is a celebration of the victory of our Lord Jesus Christ. The saving action of God through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is proclaimed to us through the Word of God. In and through that Word we celebrate our Lord opening the gates of heaven for us through His life, death, and resurrection. Our Church does not gather in worship to commemorate the "late departed" Jesus, but to witness to the resurrection of our Lord by proclamation, preaching, prayer, thanksgiving, and the sacraments celebrated and administered. Jesus Christ is in our midst according to His Promise.
Statement on Holy Communion Reception
Our worship service is open to all; however, as a matter of faith, we practice close communion. The Lords Supper is celebrated at this congregation in the confession and glad confidence that, as he says, our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but his very body and blood to eat and to drink for the forgiveness of sins and to strengthen our union with him and with one another.
Our Lord invites to his table those who trust his words, repent of all sin, and set aside any refusal to forgive and love as he forgives and loves us, that they may show forth his death until he comes.
Because those who eat and drink our Lords body and blood unworthily do so to their great harm and because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at this altar, any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who hold a confession differing from that of this congregation and The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, and yet desire to receive the sacrament, are asked first to speak with the pastor.
