Faith Ministry Stories

Something New Springing Up

Posted by Faith Lutheran Staff on

Faith ministry continues, even as we remain physically distant. We celebrate God's Spirit leading us this past week.

On Sunday, October 4, for the first time since March, we had in-person worship (with restrictions) at both the 9 am and 10:30 am services. We celebrate that we have so many great options for worship! Our congregation is self-selecting between livestreaming, radio broadcast, and in-person worship, allowing everyone to stay safe during pandemic. Thank you to the many volunteers who make all forms of worship welcoming and safe.

We celebrate the voice of Joe Davis joining Faith on Sunday, reminding us that even when things feel like they are ending, there is also something new springing up. What a positive addition to our worship!

FaithGroups successfully launched on October 6, with dozens of participants coming together virtually to build community, share and learn. This collaborative effort between Faith and Incarnation Lutheran is exploring important questions about life, justice and healing.

Bells are back! The bell choir is rehearsing again on Mondays. A smaller group is meeting in a larger space to keep all participants safe. We look forward to hearing recorded bell pieces at future Faith worship services.

We celebrate that one 9th grade confirmation group and parents are able to gather again on Wednesday nights at Faith, while other students participate virtually. The students and guides are so thrilled to see one another in person again after months of separation, and the parents enjoy the opportunity for fellowship.  We are blessed with a large facility that makes limited in-person gatherings like this possible.

This week we hit a milestone: 25 virtual "prayer lab minutes" in 2020! Thank you, Deacon Nina, for introducing so many ways to connect with God.  Here's a "throwback" to the very first virtual prayer lab minute from March 20, 2020

 

We celebrate creative new approaches to vegetation management at Faith. We are currently exploring ways to care for creation, including pollinators, in the western edge of our property. New signs mark an area where we are committed to being pesticide free and considering future pollinator friendly plantings.

As you witness ministry happening in your home or neighborhood, or as you share God's grace with others, let us know so we can celebrate with you! Email
