Ministries

Welcome Home

Faith Lutheran Church offers a personal connection for you and your family to grow in your faith in Austin. We offer classes and groups ready to help you go deeper with God. Check out our options below and jump in this week.

Worship and Music

Weekly worship is the most important thing we do at Faith Lutheran Church.  At worship, Jesus is present with us through the proclamation of the word and through the sacraments of Holy Communion and Baptism.  We offer Holy Communion at every Sunday worship service.

For the most part, our worship is the familiar liturgical worship many expect from a Lutheran community of faith.  We add a few wrinkles though.  Every third Sunday of the month, our Praise Team, Living Faith, takes center stage leading the worship and the singing. When there is a fifth Sunday in the month, our Gospel Quartet takes over, leading the congregation in Gospel singing.

Stewardship

“Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.”  1Peter 4:10

God made each of us a steward and gave us abilities and talents that we could use to manage and care for the creation God has bestowed on us.

A Christian steward serves God out of love and gratitude for all God has given us, knowing it is not how much we have but what we do with what we have.

Stewardship brochures that explain all of the opportunities for service at Faith Lutheran Church are available in the narthex.

Youth

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” 
1 Timothy 4:12

The Youth Group at Faith provides opportunities for students to come together in fellowship and service while learning more about their faith and how God is actively involved in their lives. Despite our hectic schedules, we gather to learn, laugh, and form lasting relationships with our peers.

Want to get involved?  We would love to have you join us!
