In December at a Secret Sisters luncheon, names are drawn from those who want to participate. In the following months, on holidays and your birthday, small gifts and cards are left in the Secret Sisters Box in the Church Office for you from your ‘secret’ sister. 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 Cub Scout Pack and a Boy Scout Troop in South Beloit. These Scouts don’t just meet in our building but are integral to the ministry here at Faith. They help with clean-up days, host a Fellowship time on a Sunday morning as well as serving as ushers and greeters on Scout Sunday.
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 Card and Game night as well as our Out To Dinner Group that visits a different local restaurant each month. We also have annual events such as our Ice Cream Social, Fall Hay Ride and cheering on our pastor as she races with other area pastors in the Faster Pastor race at Rockford Speedway!
6th, 7th and 8th grade students meet throughout the school year to learn about the New Testament, Old Testament and Lutheran Catechism. This interactive time focuses on the Faith Formation of our students as they are involved in worship and community service. Oh…we have a lot of fun too!
Youth – Our students in Jr. High and Sr. High meet each week during the school year. Each summer they take a mission trip and are involved in many activities throughout the year such as our Souper Bowl Food Drive.
We offer Sunday School during the school year, Vacation Bible School each summer and many special events throughout the year such as our Annual Easter Egg Hunt.
