Ministries

Children's Ministry
Faith offers Sunday School every Sunday starting at 10am. During the school year (Sept. - May) Faith Lutheran Church offers a special children's learning hour every Sunday. From 10am - 10:45 children in grades K - 5th can learn about Jesus, Bible History, and Biblical teachings. Your child will have fun while leaning about the Bible. If you are visiting feel free to let you children participate in Faith's Sunday School.

Youth Ministry
Faith Lutheran Church understands the importance of ministering to our Youth. Youth above the 6th grade get the opportunity more deeply study Biblical teachings and doctrines every Wednesday at 4pm. This weekly class covers Bible History, and Biblical doctrines such as The Lord's Supper, Baptism, Keys, Law and Gospel, Absolution, Ministry, Confession, The Church, and other doctrines that Faith Lutheran Church believes and confesses.

Youth in this Confirmation Class will also discuss tough moral issues such as evolution, homosexuality, divorce, abortion, the role of Christians toward the government, and other issues. Youth are encourage to ask questions and discuss the issues they face. After completing the multi-year course they are invited to formally join the church and participate in the Lord's Supper.


Research indicates that during puberty, a child goes through many physical and mental changes that affect behavior and moods.  The key factor to remember, however, is that this is a period of discovery for adolescence, a prime tool to foster spiritual growth.  Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”


New Christian Ministry
Pastor Smuda regularly offers a course which teaches the basics doctrines of the Bible. This course provides an excellent introduction to the Bible for those who are not familiar with the Scriptures or a fine review for those who have studied God's word in the past. This course also prepares those who would like to take the Lord's Supper at our church and become part of our congregation. There is no charge for this series of classes and you will receive a free copy of the textbook, By Grace Alone. If you are interested in such a course please contact Pastor Smuda at (989) 734-2014 (cell) and he will be very glad to talk to you about this fine course.
