Faith's 50th Anniversary is fast approaching! 

Quick History:
    At the founding in 1966, Faith Lutheran was led by Reverend Don Himmelman. Early meetings were held in the Lions Club. The congregation soon raised the funds to buy the land on which the church is currently situated. 
    The original sanctuary, which is now the Fellowship Hall, was built in 1968. It seated 170 people. By 1972, the early church had outgrown their sanctuary and built the current sanctuary. Fellowship Hall became a gathering place for meetings and social functions. Later, the kitchen was built and classroom building were added. 
    A groundbreaking was held in 2008 to begin construction what is now the community center.

Help us continue to grow Faith Lutheran! We are kicking off a year-long anniversary celebration beginning in January, 2016. Now is the time to start planning!

Please call the church office if you would like to lead or be a part of one of our committees. (941)-924-4664 We need to plan for food, worship, theme, etc. This is a great time to get involved, and we are excited to see what the year brings!
