Worship 9:30am Every Sunday!!
On Sunday, November 19, the Congregation shared some conversation and made some decisions:
- We adopted the Proposal for a transformational Renewal of Ministry that was presented.
- We will be working on forming a Leadership Team (six persons, plus Pastor; lay person to Chair) that will guide our process. Please take time to read the Proposal if you have not had the chance to do so.
- We will also be inviting the Leadership Team and Council, along with any others, to join in a personal faith journey involving daily Scripture readings, prayer, possibly journaling, and a commitment to a once-per-week gathering with others to share their experiences. This is a 40 day commitment.
- We will also be implementing a Church Vitality Survey on two Sundays: December 3 and December 10 - we encourage all to participate in this poll, which will provide important information to the Leadership Team as they begin to shape their work.
- We considered the pros and cons of several property locations for Living Faith to continue its ministry in the future. We are asking your involvement in a non-binding poll - please visit the poll and rank the locations that are listed from your favorite to your least favorite. Click here to share your preferences.
- We approved to have the Treasurer transfer funds to the Operations Account to meet current obligations of the Church.
Haiti Disaster Relief: Recovering from Hurricane Matthew (2016)
The work of the Haiti Task Force of the Florida Bahamas Synod is ongoing! Often our work among our Synodical Companion, the Eglisse Lutherienne d'Haiti (ELH) involves both personal and financial support - and often the latter is towards maintenance of vehicles – important, but kind of mechanical (ok, pun intended). Our support of this project for recovery after Hurricane Matthew in October 2016 has been different – not just maintenance, but sustaining, life-giving, restorative work was done and is still underway. It is an exciting report – please take the time to read it through! Happy Thanksgiving – Pastor Andreas+

Life is difficult at times and we all need prayer. At Living Faith, we take your request seriously and we will be praying for you.
This is a family, and a place to call home. It’s a place to get help, healing, and hope. All are welcome here.
Find the strength, peace and comfort you need to strengthen your walk with Christ.
We are walking through the Book of Acts - and discovering what it means to us today. Join us!
An Easter to remember!
Our Easter celebration was the culmination of a beautiful Holy Week commemoration, washing feet and sharing communion with a new commandment: Love one another, then Good Friday with a Stations of the Cross prayer service in the park at Silver Lakes and an evening joint service with Trinity. Easter morning started with Sunrise Service on the dock - the sun broke over the horizon just as we read from Genesis: And God said: "Let there be light!" The joyful celebration continued inside with breakfast, an Easter Egg Hunt, and our joyous Resurrection Service. Christ is Risen! Christ is Risen, Indeed! Alleluia!
