The purpose of the Women’s Ministry at Faith Lutheran and Journey in Faith is to support women in developing and sharing their gifts, so they may feel the blessing of serving others and bring glory to God in the church, the community, and beyond.
The Women of Faith have sponsored luncheons/brunches, seminars, book club, and extended educational opportunities for all women, extending out into the community.
Small groups of women meet monthly for Bible studies. Come to learn, care, and pray for one another and for food and fellowship.

Serving for Funerals
Church members are encouraged to volunteer for serving lunch or providing bars for funerals held at Faith Lutheran. This is a great opportunity to honor the families and friends during their time of loss and provide a time for fellowship following the funeral. This is an important ministry, as often the first steps in healing take place in the sharing of memories that occur during this fellowship.
If you are willing to provide bars for funerals, help serve or assist in doing dishes please contact Paula Kaufman.
God’s work happens through our hands as we gather to make quilts for Lutheran World Relief and local needs. Quilters meet one week in the spring, and one week in the fall. No experience is necessary. Check the church calendar for quilting dates.
The Piecemakers Quilting Group meets every Wednesday at 1:30PM in the west half of the Fellowship Hall – Faith Lutheran campus. Experienced quilters and quilter wanna-bes are encouraged to stop in and join the fellowship.
This group organizes the spring and fall quilting events mentioned above. The Piecemakers make a quilt for every child that is baptized at Faith and Journey to remind them and their parents that they are wrapped in God’s love.
Sacraments Ministry Team
The Sacraments Ministry Team bakes the bread and prepares the non-alcoholic wine for Holy Communion. They also set up for Baptisms, ensuring there is clean water, a candle and cloth for every person being baptized. Those who enjoy serving behind the scenes find this team is a great way for them to serve the Lord and his people. If interested in serving, please complete the Time and Talent form or contact Brenda Jo Gillund.
Lutefisk and Meatball Supper
The Annual Lutefisk and Meatball Supper is definitely not a women only activity. Opportunities abound for those willing to share their God-given gifts by cooking, baking, serving, hostessing and cleaning-up. The food, friends, faith and fellowship make this an event to enjoy and remember whether you like lutefisk or not.
