I’m Pastor Matt Krause, I am the Family Life Pastor. My passion is helping families grow in the light of Christ. I am excited for how God has blessed my young family at Faith Lutheran with the ability to grow with other families through family life ministry. God has begun a new and amazing ministry here at Faith with many ways to strengthen and support families and to reach out to families in the community. Our goal for the family life ministry is to provide an environment where families feel comfortable, supported, and loved just the way God meant them to be. I encourage you to check out Faith’s family life ministry. I am here for your family, and praying for all families as they walk together in their journey of life. Email Pastor Matt
