Adult Faith Formation Mission Statement: To build up adult disciples for their vocational work in living out baptismal faith.
This board facilitates this mission through Small Groups, Biblical Education, and Member Care
In addition to all the opportunities to serve with a group of folks on one of our Church Boards, we offer many other small group experiences to help deepen your connection with the community of believers at Faith Lutheran.
The easiest way to stay informed of what is happening at Faith is to sign up for our weekly email.
