In wisdom and with love, God gave marriage to Adam by giving him a perfect and beautiful creation, woman. Marriage completed what was incomplete. Nothing was better than paradise, but marriage made it even better.
Even after sin forced the first married couple to leave Eden, they could move on in life bolstered by the promise of the coming Savior and blessed with a bit of paradise still intact, marriage. In and with each other, their joys would be doubled and their burdens halved.
If that’s the way God views marriage, shouldn’t we too!
For this reason Faith Lutheran is going to offer a series of events meant to enrich our marriages.
The schedule for the Marriage Enrichment Events will be as follows:
6-7 pm—Marriage Enrichment from God’s Word
(This will take place in the fellowship hall of our Black River Falls location)
7-9 pm—Date Night! (Babysitting will be provided at church. You are asked to be back to pick your child(ren) up by 9 pm and may be asked to give $5 in gratitude for the babysitters time)
Marriage Enrichment Dates Friday, June 22 - Understanding Marriage...Knowing Each Other
Friday, August 24 - Marital Oneness
TBA - Barriers to Marriage & Oneness (Part 1)
TBA - Barriers to Marriage & Oneness (Part 2)
TBA - Communication: A Key to a Great Marriage

“How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! (Psalm 133)
We have opportunity to celebrate and build that unity at our annual joint worship and picnic on June 24, at 10 a.m. in Black River Falls. The food will be provided that day. Plan to stick around a little while afterwards for some games.
Jesus Cares Worship at the Cross
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation."(Mark 16:15)
Faith Lutheran Church of Black River Falls is excited to announce a new program called Worship at the Cross. The Worship at the Cross program will provide individuals with special needs the opportunity to hear God’s Word, participate in activities and engage in fellowship with family members, volunteers and community members.
The Worship at the Cross program is a simplified service that follows a format appropriate for people with a cognitive disability, including people with forms of dementia. Pictures and symbols lead participants through the parts of the service.
We are very excited to share God’s word with individuals in Black River Falls, and this Worship at the Cross program will allow us to bring the Gospel to individuals with disabilities, their families and community members. It will truly be a unique program designed to inspire and impact.
The Worship at the Cross program is part of Jesus Care Ministries (JCM). JCM is a ministry of The Lutheran Home Association and provides Christian community outreach for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities. To find out more about JCM check us out at www.tlha.org, follow @TLHAword on Twitter and “Like” Jesus Cares Ministries on Facebook.
The WELS International Youth Rally exists to provide youth and youth leaders from across the synod a large-scale worship, education, fellowship, recreation, and service opportunity that deepens commitment to Christ and his church.
The Rally is usually held on college campuses across the country. This year it is being held at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. For four days, around 2,000 teens from our WELS congregations will gather together to be built up, encouraged, and strengthened in their faith and Christian life.
To God be all praise and glory for this wonderful opportunity for our youth!!!
Summer Music in the Park
On Tuesday, July 24, Faith Lutheran Church will host Chris Driesbach as part of our community concert series at the Lunda Bandshell. The music starts at 7 p.m. Here is a little information about Chris...
Chris is a member of Lamb of God Lutheran Church in Madison, Alabama.
Chris played music professionally for 30 years on the west coast. He was an atheist until age 33, and after that sort of a new-age spiritualist. Nine years later he became a Lutheran and a Christian at the same time in 1995.
He has been writing Christian songs since 2004, including a song about my personal experience with hurricane Katrina when I lived in New Orleans as a member of Crown of Life Lutheran Church (WELS.) I have recorded 7 Christian CDs: Lifted in 2006 and 2007, FeedYour Faith in 2008, Let Christ Be Known and Hymns for Him in 2009, Jesus Is the Man! in 2010, One Cross, Three Nails in 2012, and Jesus Wins! in 2016.
