Join us next Sunday, September 7, from 9:15-10:15 a.m., in St. Michael's Hall for our Alpha Sunday Ministry Fair. A special appearance of Faith Lutheran Church member, Kristin Porter aka Iowa Girl Eats, will be passing out and signing the Iowa Food and Family Project cookbooks. All the various church ministries will be available to share how you can be involved in church activities. And of course there will be munchies. We look forward to seeing you.

New Member Class

A new member class will be held on Wednesday, September 17, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. The class will be held in Faith Lights Room at the north end of Messiah Hall and serves as preparation for those who are interested in membership at Faith. There will be an opportunity to review the basics of the Christian faith from a Lutheran perspective, to meet ministry team leaders and staff, and to develop new friendships. New members will be officially received at the worship service at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, September 28.

Sunday Schedule Change

With a new program year at Faith Lutheran Church just around the corner we feel a good momentum and a growing participation in our many expressions of ministry. Eager to live more fully into the next things, we will enter into a new worship schedule beginning on Alpha Sunday, September 7, with worship services at 8:15 and 10:30 a.m. Alpha Sunday activities will be held between services that day.

Our new schedule for Sunday School (Children through Adults) will begin on Sunday, September 14, and will be held from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. Classroom curriculum for children will be based upon our Sunday readings in worship using sparkhouse resources.

We are excited about the opportunities this brings to our Sunday mornings. With one education time for all ages, many new possibilities emerge. Consider these:

Messiah Hall Art Gallery - Aaron Snethen Exhibition

Exhibition: August 16 – November 15, 2014


Aaron Snethen grew up in Norwalk, Iowa and attended Grand View University. He graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Visual Arts and Graphic Design. 

Aaron's interest in the arts began with an Etch-A-Sketch at age 3 and 20 years later transformed into large scale paintings on self-stretched canvases. Aaron Snethen

Relationships fuel Aaron's inspiration in his art. As evident in his paintings, Aaron provokes associations with unique personal characteristics. His work has been motivated by those in his life that he is closest to, and brings them to light in his paintings. He conveys these traits through his use of high contrast and unique color palette, stylistic brush patterns, and large scale compositions. The larger the panting is, the larger of an impact it has in its environment.

Aaron encourages his audience to reflect on their own relationships while viewing his work to create their own personal associations.
