9 am every Sunday for Worship
We worship the Lord, we care for country...
August 1...Jesus IS the True Bread of Life
Update July 8, 2021 -
Yes, the variants of COVID are there, and the cold and flu season will arrive...what are we to do?
01) If you are sick (and you know it), stay home and relax, care for yourself; we will be still here the following week. Of course, call Pastor if in need.
02) If Pastor has a sniffle (colds still exist), no Eucharist that weekend and we will modify the service and Pastor will continue to mask up and stay distance. Of course, if diagnosed with some catchy thing and a fever exists, the Deacon(s) will preside. If all are sick and out, we will contact everyone best we can.
03) There are plenty of guidelines to follow, CDC, Illinois, etc., we are all adults and will do what is good and proper to care for all. We are not mandating vaccines or the like, you do what is appropriate and right for you and family.
04) We still have plenty of hand sanitizer all around, extra masks, and cleaner for the church.
Church IS essential and we must do all we can to stay open and care for one another as we we worship God in HIS House.
Update June 7, 2021 - Well, the Governor (on June 11) has "opened all up"...and what does that mean for us?
A few things:
01) We will continue with the Body and Blood (under the Bread and Wine) in the Sacrament. Yet, we shall for now retain only the individual cups with the host. Everyone is simply comfortable with that...of course, talk to Pastor if concerns.
02) Masks...if everyone show up as guidelines dictate, OK. Of course, please be respectful of all. We will not ask if you are vaccinated, that is a choice you make,
03) The hand cleaner abounds throughout the church. Please use it.
04) As always, if sick...stay home whether COVID, the flu, a common cold, etc.
05) Pastor will continue to wear his mask when in very near contact during the service...for the near future. Ask him why in person...
We have done well and we will continue to be a safe place to worship. Of course, got concerns...air them please.
In today's world, sadly, churches are not all the same. This church is confessional, catholic, denominational...and that matters. We follow a historic practice that comes from the Word of God, and yes, molded by the Reformers. Complicated? Perhaps...yet, important because we do not make things up as we go along. We believe God's Word speaks still, but it was spoken in the Bible. We cannot change His Word, yet we must understand it. So "come to church".
Sin is a tough thing to a world and its people that are hurting - we offer a solution (and it begins with the cross) Yes, the cross...Christ died on it, and then rose. Foolishness to some, life to many!
As you can tell, a chair is waiting for you at Faith...OK, perhaps not this close for some; but in Jesus eyes, you are right up front in His heart (ours too).
Sign up to hear from us about all our special events.
Visit us every Sunday morning at 9 am for Divine Service.
