On June 12, 2021 we’re hosting an event in the church parking lot from 9:00-11:00 am. You’ll be able to buy homemade caramel rolls and fresh Guatemalan coffee (drive-thru or walk-up), sit outside and listen to live music by Terry Ferguson, and/or walk on a 5k route around the church…all to raise funds for Common Hope! 
Here’s a link to register for the walk >>> and how to create a fundraising page (Click “Join Team”).
Direct donations are also welcome. Invite your friends and neighbors!
Common Hope Guatemala Trip Recap
March 1-8, 2020.
This trip included many facets of Common Hope’s work. We built a house. We did social work visits. We visited our sponsored children. We ventured into the schools, and we did a “day in the life” of a typical family. We visited rural villages and spent a lot of time in the beautiful and historic city of Antigua. We also had time to do a “cultural activity” and other fun things, in addition to the mission work. This was a life-changing trip!

Faith Lutheran’s main international ministry partner is Common Hope – Guatemala. Common Hope works with families in Guatemala to provide hope for better lives through access to education, housing, family development and improved medical care/nutrition. 
Faith’s membership has supported this mission through sponsorships, mission trips, financial support, and prayer.
It has been a life-changing experience for many members of Faith as well as for families in Guatemala.
