** Prayer Ministry at Faith Lutheran **
(Please note) - You may ask for a prayer before we begin worship at anytime. I mean it, anytime before the Invocation.
** NOTE ** I understand privacy is a concern for all, so prayers will only be listed here or announced with the OK from those in need. We want to pray as a family of Faith whenever possible, we really care.

** Faith being Mission Minded – sharing Christ’s love with others **
The Website for Faith - Always up to date. Please, tell a friend; and offer suggestions.
Invitation - Are you sharing the Good News of our Church and telling a friend, "stop in"? Not easy, I get it…but if so, why? How can the Church help?
** Faith worship / service notes **
In Lent - We do omit the Alleluia's (OK, some noted in Ash Wednesday I did not, an oversight). Is it mandatory? No, it is just a custom and tradition to set a more reflective tone to the service. In essence, we have lost our joyous voice and will find it again on Easter Morning.
Next week's Bible passages for your study preparation: (Sunday Service)
Isaiah 12:1-6, Psalm 32, 2 Corinthians 5:16-21, Luke 15:1-3, 11-32
(For the 4th Sunday in Lent)
Year C of the Three Year Lectionary Series
Theme for this Day – Throughout the Holy Scriptures, the Lord inspires several refrains that shape the confession of the Church-repent and live, abhor evil, flee destruction, and love righteousness! The justice of Christ's righteousness abolishes the merits of good works; He redeems those who genuinely repent of their iniquity. These are the ones upon whom He bestows eternal life. By human standards, this is questionable justice. By divine standards, it is total Grace! He will do it!
Lent and Easter 2019 - continues!
Please, tell a friend, invite a family member!
