The beginning of Faith Lutheran Church started in 1946, when adults and teenagers participated in Sunday School. Due to the absence of a church building, Sunday School was held at the old depot, old city hall fire station, dance hall and a home. Faith Lutheran Church grew out of the prayers and concerns of devoted people who believed a church was a necessary part of the community. On December 20, 1949, 13 people representing nine families, met at a home to consider organization. This home was renovated and became a place of fellowship and living quarters for the minister.
In April 1951, ground was broken to build the church structure on 3 1/2 acres of land on the edge of town. The dedication of the new church was held on September 14, 1952. Through the years, many improvements and changes to the building have been made possible because of the committment and generosity of the disciples of Faith.
“Praise and thanks be to God for His grace and His presence in all our past, present, and future endeavors.”
At Faith Lutheran Church, we believe that we are freed by God’s unconditional love in Jesus Christ that is freely given to all of creation. You are unconditionally loved by God, so am I, and so is everyone else, and in this amazing love there is freedom! All of our other beliefs and values as a Church body comes from this understanding of God and the world God has made.
