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:

  • Varied educational offerings during a month, sometimes by age group and sometimes bringing together different ages and generations for a common purpose or topic.
  • Parents and children taking a class together about faith practices for the home.
  • Conversation with one of our pastors about matters of the faith.
  • A service and outreach project to be approached together by varied groups within the congregation.
  • Creative approaches to intergenerational worship.

Join with me in looking forward to a renewed and vibrant participation in the worship and learning life of our congregation this fall. Pastor Randy

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.
