LOOKING FOR A PLACE FOR MEDITATION, FOR REFLECTION FOR PRAYER, OR JUST SOME QUIET TIME? Faith welcomes your use of our Labyrinth and Prayer Garden located outside next to the church. Life is about change, growth, discovery and transformation. We continuously expand our vision of what is possible, by stretching, learning and listening—all with the hope of becoming closer to God. The labyrinth walk helps all of this occur. There is no wrong way, nor is there any wrong reason to walk the labyrinth. There is only one route in, with the same path leading out again. It is not a maze. In some instances it will be walked in a slow, solemn and deliberate manner. However, it can be used in a joyous manner, as well. Labyrinths have long been used in the Christian church as a prayer and meditation tool. The Chartres-style labyrinth, like ours, represents an ancient symbol relating to wholeness. It is a metaphor for a journey to our own center and back again out into the world, with a broadened understanding of who we are.
Faith is offering organized activities for two age groups. One group is from grades 6 through 8 (Confirmation) and the other is from 9 through 12 (Faith Lutheran Youth (FLY)). Some events are noted under Upcoming Events and can be found in the Church Calendar and Newsletter. Call the church office (623-3610) for times and places. These activities are open to all Columbus area youth in these age groups. Check it out, you might like it. All youth have an input to the type, timing and location of the activity. Check out the Shanty Town videos on You Tube. Shanty Town 2010 and Shanty Town Games.
Faith has an active program for seniors 55 and older. Participation is not limited to just Faith members. Check Church News anouncements . Contact Esther Nancy Mickelson 484-3476 if you would like to participate.
Our mission is:
- To foster the fellowship of interested Faith Lutheran members.

- Demonstrate a church activity in a positive way within a theme that visitors are interested in.
“Fur, Fin and Feathers at Faith” is an community event for people that share an interest in conservation, hunting, fishing and the outdoors. There have been 11 events so far. The previously announced event for Thursday September 20, 2018 will not be held. Click here for reviewing past event pictures. This has been a no-charge admission event, however we do request a donation of non-perishable food items, or funds, for the Columbus-Fall River Food Pantry. In recent years we have had a FILL the row BOAT with food pantry items campaign.

Faith’s Music Ministry consists of Senior Chior, Bell Chior, Contemporay vocal/instrument group and two Sunday School (S.S.) choirs. You need not be a member. For the S.S. Choirs, you must be a S.S. student. For the other 3 choirs you only need an interest.
Matthew 18:20 – For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.
It is our Ministry of Prayer where all are invited. One may come up to the altar railing during the hymn of the day and pray for themselves or someone they are concerned about or excited for. This is not just for “healing” but can be for thankfulness or celebration or whatever they want it to be for. We have a team of members that are scheduled to be at the railing and pray with the one coming forward.
