Becoming Actively Involved
Becoming active in the congregational life of Faith Lutheran Church is very easy. You are free to take part in any of the opportunities, including worship, that are offered. Also, once in the spring and once in the fall, the pastors will host informational gatherings. At these gatherings they will cover in more depth the various ministries of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), the Southeastern Iowa Synod, and Faith Lutheran Church, Eldridge.
If you have been active in another Christian congregation you are invited to contact the pastor(s) of that congregation and let them know you are planning on becoming active here at Faith. If you have never been baptized, connected to a Christian congregation or been away from a church for several years, you are invited to have personal conversation with one of the pastors about the joy you will experience when connected to the church.
