A groundbreaking ceremony for the new addition of Faith Lutheran Church will be taking place on Sunday at 10 a.m.

The ceremony marks the physical beginning of a multi-stage plan, The Greater Faith Project, to expand the current building’s fellowship, office, education and gathering spaces.

The church started with a small number more than 19 years ago and now has more
than 500 members. In 2017 the congregation at Faith endorsed a 2020 Vision to expand entirely on the current site of the church and to prioritize the building for ministry impact.
