Faith Lutheran Preschool is focused on connecting children and families to Christ and the message of forgiveness of sins and eternal life that he offers freely.
Jesus calls us from sinful selfishness to selfless service. We can view the world from the perspective of selfishness or selflessness. Selfishness puts self before all and leads to favoritism, pride and envy. Repentance, however, means despairing of self, trusting in Christ’s substitutionary sacrifice and leading lives of selfless service modeled after our Savior who came not to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for us.
Jesus revealed the plan of the Father to his disciples: the Son of God would leave his heavenly throne and selflessly give his freedom to his enemies, his body to the torturer, his life to the executioner in order that he might be our Savior. Rather than marveling at the depth of his love and self-sacrifice, the disciples argued about places of greatness in glory. The sons of Zebedee wanted to sit at the right and left of Jesus, but were only promised that they would join in drinking his cup. The other disciples were indignant, but not righteously so. Jesus corrected them, too. Followers of Jesus drink his cup and find greatness in selflessly serving others. For our motivation and our model, Christ points back to God’s plan for the Son of Man who came not to be served, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Every church has its own style of worship. We think you'll enjoy the services at Faith, but as in any church, you should expect it to take a couple of services to become accustomed to our way of praising God and proclaiming what he has done.
Each week the service outline is printed in the worship folder. In addition the entire service is projected on the wall to make it easy for you to follow along. All the Scripture readings, hymns, and responsive readings and prayers will be shown there. You are certainly welcome to bring along your own Bible and follow along there if you choose, too. Although the hymns are projected, hymnals are in the pew racks for you to use if you prefer to do so, when following the order of service of singing the hymns.
Music certainly is an important part of our services. Loud or soft, in monotone or rich harmony, all our praises are music to God as we respond to hearing His Word.
When pondering God's love for us and our opportunity to praise and thank him for that love, we recall the words of the Psalm writer: "I rejoiced with those who said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD.'" (Psalm 122:1)
