Welcome Jennifer Brandt!
We will be welcoming Jennifer Brandt into our midst beginning February 3rd. She will be with us for 1 1/2 years and will be serving approximately 5 hours/week. The following is a brief introduction to Jennifer Brandt:
I am in my first year student at Luther Seminary pursuing Master of Arts in Congregational and Community Care. I will be doing a lot of things around the church, from assisting during worship to helping plan and implement events that people from the church and the wider community can attend together. I have been member of the ELCA my entire life, currently a member of Bethel Lutheran Church in Rochester.
Favorite Verse: Jeremiah 29.11 – God will show you the way, when it is right.

PANTRY OF FAITH
This ministry is in place to offer emergency food rations to those who need them most, specifically in Dodge Center. Potential referral sources in the area have received a letter about the ministry and how to refer an individual or family. You can help by picking up a card from the pantry area and returning the item listed to the church office.
COMMUNITY BACKPACK PROGRAM
A local group of community members are working with the Dodge Center Foundation to create the Tri-Community Backpack Program. This program is partnering with Channel One to provide food for children on weekends. The Tri-Community Backpack project encompasses the communities of Dodge Center, Claremont, and West Concord.
TABLE OF FAITH
The Table of Faith is Faith Lutheran Church's new outreach mission. We are doing a community meal outside of our church at Heritage Estates. We will be hosting the meal once a month. It is our goal in this ministry to make new friendships, have a wonderful fellowship and get to know others outside of church. We encourage those who are willing to serve others to join this ministry. All are welcome!
“To find Christ in such poverty, and what his swaddling clothes and manger signify, are explained … that his poverty teaches how we should find him in our neighbors, the lowliest and the most needy; and his swaddling clothes are the holy Scriptures; that in actual life we should incline to the needy; and in our studies and contemplative life only to the Scriptures; in order that Christ alone may become the man of both lives and that he may everywhere stand before us.” – Martin Luther
