 Rice Lake Physician to Speak at Faith Lutheran Mission Church


Dr. Lowell Kristensen, a long-time Rice Lake physician and his wife Shirley will speak about the impact of Christ in their lives at Faith Lutheran Mission Church in Eau Claire at 5 p.m., Sunday May 23.  The congregation, affiliated with Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC), worships at The Lutheran Church of St. Matthew, 1915 Hogeboom Street, with a time of food and fellowship to follow.  


The Kristensens, who now live near Chetek, will provide testimony about the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives during a special Pentecost Sunday service at Faith Lutheran Mission Church.  The worship will be led by Pastor Gerald Hibbard, who has been a Lutheran pastor for 52-years, and has served Stanfold Lutheran Church since the rural Rice Lake voted to leave the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) to affiliate with LCMC in March of this year. 


Faith Lutheran Mission Church is the first and only in the Eau Claire area 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.


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 Good News Jail Ministry in Eau Claire, and another 10% to East European Missions Network, an evangelical, inter-Lutheran mission organization that sends missionaries, mobilizes churches and networks believers in the former Soviet bloc countries.


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 at faithlutheranmc.org.
