Our Mission Statement
"Welcoming the Community to Rejoice and Grow in Serving the Lord."




Who Are We?
Faith Lutheran Church is a vibrant, growing, mission minded congregation located in the lake region of central Minnesota. We are a member of the Southwest Minnesota Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).  The ELCA is a community of faith that shares a passion for making positive changes in the world. Our faith is built around a strong belief in God as made known to us in Jesus Christ. Through community, worship, education, and service we grow in our relationship with God, experience God's grace, and live out our faith in daily life.
 
The people and pastors of Faith Lutheran are committed to meeting you wherever you are on your journey in faith.
Together we will…

 
REJOICE in our faith through:

  • lively worship
  • the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion
  • prayer
  • concern for others 



GROW in God’s love as revealed in Jesus Christ through:

  • Bible study
  • discussion
  • educational opportunities 



SERVE others through:

  • our time
  • our talents
  • our resources 



Where Have We Been?
Faith Lutheran Church was established in 1963 through the merger of two Lutheran churches in Spicer- Sharon Lutheran, a Swedish congregation, and Zion Lutheran, a Norwegian congregation. Faith’s first building was completed in 1967 on Lake Avenue. After outgrowing that facility, a new facility was built in 2001 on the North end of Spicer, West of Hwy 23. The first worship service at this facility was held in February of 2002. In 2008 Phase II of the building was completed. 
 
Where Are We Going? 
In 2009, the congregation developed a Mission-Future committee to help us determine who we are and where we feel God is leading us.  As a result of surveys, and focus groups, the Mission-Future committee made recommendations to the church council about short and long-term goals for our congregation.  We are excited to see how God works in making these become a reality for our mission and ministry!
 



Our Vision Statement
Confident in God's grace, Faith Lutheran Church will continue to grow as a community of "connected" believers,
equipped and encouraged to live out our faith in daily life in Kandiyohi County and beyond.
