Our Church Council meets the 3rd Monday of every month, with the exception of July unless needed. We meet in the Fellowship Room at 5:30 for dinner, provided by a council member. Then the meeting follows at 6pm. All congregation members are invited and welcome to attend the meeting.
Secret Sisters is open to all women in our congregation. At a luncheon, names are drawn from those who want to participate. For that year, you keep your Secret Sister in your prayers. In the following 12 months, on holidays and her birthday, small gifts and cards are brought to church for your Secret Sister and are left in the Secret Sisters Box in the Fellowship Room. It’s a lot of fun, and ends with the ‘reveal’ at the December luncheon. All women are invited!
22 weeks of fun for the guys! It begins in late Sept and goes through April, ending with play-offs and a banquet. This year, Mike Banker and Boyd Miller are co-chairs.
Faith Lutheran is the sponsor for both a Boy Scout Troop and a Girl Scout Troop in South Beloit.
Faith Lutheran is very active in reaching out to our community. We take a collection once a month for a local food pantry as well as make health kits for Lutheran World Relief. At Easter we participate in the “Buck-a-Chick” program which provides chicks to farmers in underdeveloped countries across the world. At Christmas we support the Angel Tree program which provides gifts for families who are going through financial difficulties.
This ministry is all about fun and fellowship! We meet once a month for our Out To Dinner Group that visits a different local restaurant each month. We also have annual events such as our Ice Cream Social and Holiday Craft Show.
