March 18, 2020

Daily routines are changing for all of us as we enter this time of physical distancing.  We encourage you to think of this time as a sabbath when we will stay connected with God and each other in prayer and love because we are Christ’s body.  In the coming days we will be providing resources that you can use when all of us are spending much more time at home with family or alone. 

Pandemic Home Devotional ( https://tinyurl.com/w6g3qud ) is a family-friendly resource with activities suitable for children.  It builds on the Faith5 model of faith conversations that we have already introduced with confirmation students and mentors.  Click on link to use Pandemic Home Devotional in your home.  For a good introduction to Faith5 with short videos, go to https://faithink.com/the-faith5-steps . 

More resources for at-home use will be posted / sent in a next update.  Take care of yourselves and your neighbor.


Important Message                                  March 14, 2020

Dear friends in Christ at Grace and Faith,

We’re going to stay connected in the important days and weeks ahead, but starting on Sunday it’s going to happen in a different way.

Beginning on March 15, our Sunday and Wednesday worship will be live-streamed only (go to https://www.sundaystreams.com/go/flc 

OR push the green "live Stream" button located to the left of the church picture above.  

For the next two weeks all our public gatherings at Faith in Evansville and Grace in Brandon will be suspended.  At the same time our ministry activities will continue without physically gathering.  We will continue to connect with each other in prayer and learning, care and love, because we continue to be Christ’s body.  Some of the ways will be familiar, some will be new.  Watch for more information in the coming days about how we will continue to connect with God and each other in Christ.

We have joined many other churches and organizations in taking this difficult step, because in a time when many are at risk in a public health crisis, we care about the well-being of our neighbors.  As part of caring for our neighbors, we encourage you to do the following:

·        Wash your hands for 20 seconds many times throughout the day

·        When you cough or sneeze, cover it with a tissue or cough/sneeze into your elbow

·        Avoid public gatherings and stay at home if you are at an increased risk from the coronavirus (covid-19)

·        Call your doctor or clinic if you have symptoms of the coronavirus illness

Helpful information is available from the Minnesota Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

And, whether out of concern for your neighbor or for your own needs, please feel welcome to make contact with us about questions or requests.

I invite you to think of the coming days and weeks not so much as a suspension but a sabbath—a time when we break from our familiar routines for the sake of greater health in the whole community, both physical rest and focused attention to the comfort of God’s Word and to God’s promises in prayer.  God’s Spirit will continue to be active among us in this unexpected sabbath.

Join in the live-stream worship tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. (go to https://www.sundaystreams.com/go/flc or http://www.faithlutheranevansvillemn.org for the live-stream). Watch for more information on our websites and Facebook page, as well as in your email inbox and in the mail.

By the Spirit’s power we will continue to connect with God and each other as Christ’s Body.

Blessings and peace,

Pastor Marcus Kunz

Parish Midweek Lenten Services

will be live-streamed 7:00p.m. on Wednesdays from Faith

Our theme this year is... 

“For Us and For Our Salvation — Who God Chooses to Be For You.”

We will use this as a time to take a closer look at the Passion narrative (the story of the days leading up to Jesus crucifixion and resurrection) and to review the teaching of the Small Catechism.  


We find Joy, support, and fellowship being with one another.

We are a family; we are a faith community! We are Faith Lutheran Church, an ELCA Lutheran Christian body that has been called by God in order to love and support each other, as well as our surrounding community through acts of love and service. We are a family because we recognize that, through the gift of Holy Baptism, we are all beloved children of God; we are all members of God's family through Jesus Christ. Therefore, we all love and support each other through worship, prayer, conversation, visitation, acts of service, and fellowship activities.

We are a faith community because we recognize that God has a purpose and a mission for us in our community and in the world. Right now we are in a time of renewal as we take time to discern how God is calling us to do mission and ministry in our context. We are excited for the opportunities that the Holy Spirit is opening for us!

We are a Spirit-filled community who gathers together on Sunday mornings to be centered in worship. We have many different worship opportunitiess that we provide each month. We worship in order to be renewed and transformed by the power of Christ's love that is proclaimed through confession and forgiveness, congregational song, the Word proclaimed in scripture and preaching, and through the feast of love at the Lord's table.

Come join us in our faith journey, let us together continue to trust in grace and renewal and reflect the love that God has shone upon us.
