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.
First Sunday after Pentecost - Holy Trinity: We have now entered fully into the Half Year of the Church. We never leave behind Christ and his work for us which was the center of our attention in the Half Year of Our Lord; but now the emphasis will shift to the result of his work through the Word: the work of defining faith, of creating it and inspiring its fruits in the church collectively and in each of us individually [Series B will focus more on the latter]. And so, on the Feast of the Holy Trinity we see the Word creates faith in the Holy Trinity.!
In that kingdom of the Father, created by the work of the Son and brought to us by the Spirit in the gospel, we are not fear-driven slaves. No, so great is the love described in the gospel lesson that God even makes us his adopted sons. We are brothers of Christ the King, children of God the Father, impelled to live and work and pray by the Spirit who lives and works and prays within us. As sons we strive to live not according to our old lusts and desires, but as befits those whose Father is God, whose brother is Christ, whose leader is the Spirit in the Word. Paul is not a sexist with his use of the word sons; he is describing a relationship not just of children but of heirs; and that’s what sons were, heirs of the father’s estate. Note too: there is no synergism in vs. 16; the Spirit bears witness in the Word to our spirit; our spirit receives his witness and then in Spirit-worked faith says, “Amen.”

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)
