2nd Sunday of Easter

Welcome to our online liturgy for the Second Sunday of Easter/Holy Humor Sunday, as we celebrate the life-giving foolishness of our God. Because Christ is risen, God gets the last laugh against sin, death, and the devil!

Easter Sunday

Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia! This Easter is not unlike the very first Easter—isolated and fearful disciples, confusion, and grief. The revelation that the risen Christ and with us always is the good news that we need! Our online worship includes thanksgiving for baptism, conversation in the garden, and images of irrepressible new life. “Love is come again like wheat arising green!”

Good Friday

“We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you, for by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.” This service includes harp meditations, the Passion according to St. John, and hymns and prayers to help focus our hearts on the meaning of Christ’s life-giving death on the cross.

Maundy Thursday

The name “Maundy Thursday” comes from Christ’s new commandment (mandate) to love one another. He showed this love by feeding us with his own body and blood, kneeling to wash his disciples’ feet, and by giving his life for us on the cross. This year’s online worship service incorporates Taizé songs and handmade icons to reflect on these themes.

Palm Sunday / Passion Sunday

We welcome him with green branches and cries of ‘Hosanna!’ We are fed at his own table. We doze as he prays in agony, then watch from afar as he is arrested and tortured. He dies on a cross to save even his enemies. What kind of a King is this?

Worship At Faith

We offer a traditional worship service found in most Evangelical Lutheran settings.  Every service is a combination of traditional hymns, Biblical readings, and a sermon.  Holy Communion is celebrated at all three services every weekend of the month.  We offer an open table for communion, which means you can participate in communion at Faith if you have received instruction or take communion at your home congregation.Please come as you are.  Dress ranges from casual to business casual.

In the back of each hymnal you will find a helpful guide to Worship at Faith, which includes a map of the building and other useful information, designed to help our visitors feel at home. Please make sure that you introduce yourself to the Pastor, who will be pleased to know that you chose to visit Faith.

What we Believe

Faith is an Evangelical Lutheran Church, and part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

At Faith, our mission is “to assemble believers of the community, to preach the Gospel, to administer the sacraments so that we may be strengthened in in faith through the Holy Spirit, and to spread the knowledge of our Lord in our daily lives”.

Lutherans believe in the Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God created and loves all of creation – the earth and the seas and all of the world’s inhabitants. We believe that God’s Son, Jesus Christ, transforms lives through his death on the cross and his new life, and we trust that God’s Spirit is active in the world.

The ELCA website offers a wealth of information for those unfamiliar with the Evangelical Lutheran tradition, and we encourage you to visit this website if you have more questions regarding our beliefs.

The frequently asked questions on the side panel will direct you to the areas of the ELCA website that address the most common questions.
