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.
It is not only the outsider who turns aside from the Wisdom which is Christ. Many who have heard the Word with us also go away when some part of it conflicts with their own thinking. The sacrificium intellecti is not a onetime thing. It is a sacrifice that needs to be renewed often, in every stage of life, as new threats come that oppose Wisdom and its expression in the Word.
The stumbling block thrown in his path by the rationalism of many in the crowd does not move Jesus to soften the message. Instead he repeats it with emphasis. Through their own fault many of the hearers, yes, even one of the Twelve, refuse to bend their thinking to his Word. Instead of the attitude of Samuel, Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening, their response is, Listen, we are speaking and this is what WE think! But Jesus is the one who descended for our salvation. Jesus is the one who went back to the right hand of the Father to rule all things in heaven and on earth. Jesus is the one who will return to judge all mankind. Do you really think your opinion matters or that it is more likely to be on the mark than his? What folly! But still many came and then went away. How many times in your life have you been tempted to go away to what your own wisdom preferred? How many times have you actually done it? But today, hear his voice and answer: Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God!

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)
