School is fast approaching and we want to celebrate the end of Summer! We're going to have an awesome time hanging out at the Hamilton's House on Bass Lake. This party is for all students going into 6th-12th grade this Fall.
We are going to have tubing, water skiing, and yard games. Lunch and snacks will be provided. Make sure to wear or bring a swimsuit...and a towel...and probably sunscreen!
If for some reason we get rained out, we'll still have a party inside!
Many families at Faithbrook Church like to attend our district Family Camp at Lake Geneva Christian Center in Alexandria, MN. It is a really fun experience for all ages! There are worship services, games/sports, and many lake activities. We hope you'll consider going this summer!
The power of prayer if evident throughout history and through the life of our church. God listens and cares for all of our needs because we are his children.
Come and join us at our new property for a time of prayer. If it rains, we will go inside the building or to Pastor Jim's house.
Our new neighbors at the Eastman Nature Center are in need of some kids microscopes for outdoor nature classes. We are hosting a silent gift basket auction on April 2nd following our worship service to help raise funds for those microscopes. Please contact us if you'd like to donate.

Let's join La Familia de Dios, our sister church, for lunch after our service on November 27th. We'll be eating lunch at Elm Creek Community Church starting at 12:30pm. They are providing the main course, so please bring a side dish to share. More information soon...
