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.
Church Ladies Ministry (CLM) is a ministry to women transitioning from incarceration back into the community. These women have just been released from confinement, many with young children, or are pregnant and are in need of some tender loving care, and an introduction to a new social environment. A dedicated group of women provide this care and support on a monthly basis by going to the ARC Baby House in Madison where socializing is done through conversation, demonstrating the craft of card making, enjoying refreshments, and sharing God’s love for them through a Bible study or story and lots of baby holding.
Faith is offering organized activities for two age groups. One group is from grades 6 through 8 (Junior League) and the other is from 9 through 12 (Senior League). 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.

“Fur, Fin and Feathers at Faith” is an annual community event for people that share an interest in hunting, fishing and the outdoors.

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.
Every summer, generally in July, for one week, Faith offers an ecumenical Bible camp open to all Columbus K through 5 children. A trained staff from Lutherdale Bible Camp leads this fun filled week. There is a limit on the number of children that can be accommodated. Check the announcements in the Church News page. Reservations are accepted starting in June.
