…Nurturing our faith in Jesus Christ through Word and Sacrament , and proclaiming God’s love through service to each other and the world.
The Ministry of Faith Lutheran Church
The ministry of Faith Lutheran Church of Wichita Falls began in 1959, when a group of people in south Wichita Falls began meeting for worship and study. A borrowed church soon gave way to a house chapel, which was replaced in 1966 by the first unit of the present church building, on Southwest Parkway at Professional Drive. There has been additional expansion to the facilities since then.
Pastor Melvin Hammer, came in 1998, and retired on May 31, 2003
Pastor Ernie Barr was called in July of 2004 and now serves this congregation.
Faith Lutheran Church offers a ministry of Word and Sacrament to all people. Liturgical worship is held each Sunday at 10:45 a.m., offering the Sacrament of Holy Communion weekly. Following the service each Sunday is a Post-Worship Coffee providing the congregation and all visitors the opportunity to visit and enjoy each other’s company. This combination of worship and fellowship is a joyous beginning to each week.
During the school year, Sunday School is held at 9:30 a.m. for all ages. An Adult Class offers study of the Scriptures and a variety of issues and concerns. Bible Study is also held for adults during the school year. During Advent and Lent, there are Wednesday evening Worship services. Fellowship opportunities are offered for Women, Men, Families, and Youth.
Also active during the school year is our chime choir. This small but active, and growing, group provides regular music ministry during Sunday services. We are blessed with many immensely talented musicians. Chime choir participation is open to anyone wishing to “make a joyful noise to the Lord”.
Members of the congregation are active in many community ministries, and a variety of benevolence causes are supported.
