Historical NoteReturn to Top

Faith Lutheran Church was organized on April 21, 1968. In its early years, it was part of a two-church parish with Immanuel Lutheran of Astoria. Later it was related to Trinity Lutheran in Longview. From its beginning, it has been without its own worship and educational facility. The congregation is grateful for the cooperation of the Roman Catholics, Seventh Day Adventists, as well as people in a small country church and the owner of a mortuary in providing space for congregational activities. Also during these years the congregation cooperated with the Presbyterian Church, the Methodists and the Episcopalians in joint Sunday and summer Bible School programs. Since 1981 the congregation has shown its greatest development through membership growth and increased worship attendance. Their plans include dedication of the first unit in 1986.
