About Us


Faith Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Western North Dakota Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Founded in 1946, we are building a welcoming, nurturing faith community that is guided by Jesus and shares the Gospel.

All are welcome to become part of our community of Christ. There is no dress code - come as you are! 

Children and families are always welcome in worship.

During the school year, children age 3 through grade 6 are invited to be a part of our church school on Sunday mornings at 9:45 am or on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 pm. Confirmation classes take place on Wednesday nights for 7th-9th graders. Youth group meetings are on Wednesday nights (1st and 3rd Wednesdays) for high school youth.
