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.
The Savior’s Sermon: Love your enemies! What could be more counterintuitive? Yet Christ calls his disciples to a love for our neighbor that models itself after Jesus’ love for the world. As Luther said: Christi sumus in nominativo et genitivo (We are Christs— with and without the apostrophe). A heart like Christ’s has no room for vengeance, but is filled with love for all.
Our flesh finds Jesus’ commands revolting. The human animal snarls when attacked and bites back when bitten. Jesus, however, tells us not to resist evil, to turn the other cheek, to love our enemies. Who would live like this? Only the Son of our heavenly Father. God demonstrated his love for us in this: when we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Jesus himself prayed for his enemies who crucified him. He most certainly was his Father’s Son. Now God calls us, his sons, to live like Jesus and love people as perfectly as the Father does. As God makes the sun rise on the evil and the good, so he commands us to shine the light of our love on everyone around us.

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)
