Church Development Consultant Preaches Sunday at 
Faith LutheranMission Church


Pastor William Christiansen of Stevens Point, who provides consulting services to congregations in the areas of church development, transitional ministry and conflict resolution, will be the guest pastor for Faith Lutheran Mission Church, Eau Claire’s new LCMC congregation at 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 11.  The congregation worships at The Lutheran Church of St. Matthew, 1915 Hogeboom Street, with a time of food and fellowship to follow. 


Pastor Christiansen’s sermon for Sunday is titled, “Christ is Risen!  He is Risen Indeed!”  He has served as a pastor and mission developer in Omaha, Nebraska, as well as Mazomanie and Stevens Point in Wisconsin.  Originally a pastor in the old American Lutheran Church (ALC), he served in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in American (ELCA) and became a pastor in Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC) in 2006.  He currently directs Christiansen Professional Services, LLC, an organization based in Stevens Point. 


Faith Lutheran Mission Church is the first in the Chippewa Valley to affiliate with LCMC, a centrist, congregation-based Lutheran church body which recognizes Scripture as the sole source and norm of faith and life. Details about LCMC and its mission can be found at www.lcmc.net.


Anyone is welcome to attend both the 5 p.m. service and the meal and fellowship time to follow.  Details about Faith Lutheran Mission Church can be found atfaithlutheranmc.org.  As a church dedicated to mission work outside its church walls to the greater community, Faith Lutheran Mission Church will dedicate 10% of Sunday’s offering to the Lutheran World Relief, and another 10% to Interfaith Hospitality Network, which provides services to homeless families in the Chippewa Valley.
