The purpose of the prayer ministry is to enable people to pray for and with one another, bringing to the Lord petitions for his mercy and blessing. Members and friends of Faith Lutheran Church are encouraged to participate.

The prayers of the church include those requesting healing from sickness and struggle, comfort in grieve and trouble, and thanksgiving for blessings given. Contact the church office at 296-0672 to add to these petitions in weekend worship.

Prayer chain members respond to prayer requests, sharing these requests with others on the prayer chain. Contact the church office at 296-0672 to add a petition to the prayer chain.
Praying with and for the Pastors
On Sunday mornings at 7:30, all are invited to join the pastors for prayer.
Communion and Prayer after Worship Services
Communion is offered after every Sunday worship service, when communion is not served during the time of worship. Afterward, worshippers are invited to share any need or blessing and have someone pray with them.

United Blood Services
Our church holds a blood drive in our Gymnasium several times each year. If you are a blood donor, you are a hero to someone, somewhere who may receive your gracious gift of life! If you are able to donate blood, look for announcements in the weekly bulletin, just prior to the event and register in the Fellowship Hall for a specific time to donate.
Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people who are facing a crisis or going through tough times. Stephen Ministers are members of Faith Lutheran, who receive special training to provide one-to-one Christian care to people in our congregation and community who are experiencing grief, loneliness, divorce, hospitalization, disability, job loss, and many other life difficulties. The care you will receive is confidential, free, and very helpful. To learn how you (or a friend, neighbor, coworker, or relative) can receive care, contact the church office at 296-0672.
Through our partners at East European Missions Network (EEMN), Faith members volunteer to serve as missionaries in eastern Europe. Founded in 1992, following the fall of communism, EEMN is a conservative, evangelical, inter-Lutheran Christian mission organization that partners primarily (though, not exclusively) with indigenous Lutheran Christians living in former Soviet Bloc nations. Introducing the Gospel to people who have never learned about the saving grace, love, and mercy of God in Christ Jesus; and partnering to teach and equip a new generation of Christ-centered leaders, EEMN is committed to rebuilding communities in obedience to the Great Commission.
