Faith History

On January 30, 1955, a handful of people who would become the congregation of Faith Lutheran Church, met for the first time.  In September, the name was officially adopted and the first worship service was held on October 16th, in a frame house.  The charter was issued on March 11, 1956 with 37 communicant members.

 

Albert C. Schroeder was the first called pastor.  The original sanctuary was dedicated March 9, 1958.  The present sanctuary was dedicated March 18, 1984.

 

Faith Lutheran preschool began in September of 1988, fulfilling the charter members' desire to have a parochial school.  An education center to house preschool through grade 5 was dedicated January 30, 2005.  FLS now offers classes for Preschool through 6th grade.

 

Our current pastor is Thomas R. Johnson.
