Sanctuary Lantern Window Replacement  

The RenewingFaith capital campaign has brought many new improvements to our property and grounds over the past two years. One of the last projects on our list is the replacement of the lantern windows in the sanctuary. The work will begin on Monday, June 19, and we are anticipating the project to take 6 weeks. The project will require scaffolding in the chancel area and therefore some rearranging for worship. The east side of the sanctuary will be set up in a way that will accommodate our usual worship patterns. Your patience and flexibility during the project will be greatly appreciated. We are glad that we can take care of this needed improvement over the summer months.      
Help Us Finish Strong 
Springtime means budget planning here at Faith Lutheran Church. Staff and ministry teams work diligently throughout the year to operate within their budgets and those budgets rely entirely upon your generosity. Help us finish this fiscal year strong by being current with your general fund pledge. Mark your calendar for our annual budget meeting on July 16th at 11:30 a.m. We will discuss Fiscal Year 2017 financials and present the recommended Fiscal Year 2018 budget (July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018) for congregational approval. Your financial stewardship is vitally important to the on-going health of our shared ministries.
