About Us

Our History

Faith Lutheran first met at John Yeates Middle School in April 1990. Our organizing pastor was Richard Browder, who with his wife, Jo, visited much of Northern Suffolk and extended the community an invitation to be a part of Faith Lutheran Church.

We moved to Sturtevant Funeral Home, next door to the current church location, in 1995. Our land was purchased and construction began in early 1997. Our dedication day was October 26, 1997. We placed a time capsule in the corner of the narthex, to be opened in 2047.

After Pastor Browder left, we were served by Interim Pastor Richard F. Batman for 1 1/2 years as we began our pastoral search. Pastor Scott Benson, with his wife Babs and daughters Kelly and Emily, arrived in August 2000.

We began a contemporary liturgical service in 2001. Youth, Women's, and Men's groups were founded that year as well. We started our Wednesday Evening service, also contemporary in nature, in December of 2010.
