Welcome to the website of Faith Lutheran Church in Winterset, Iowa.
Thank you very much for visiting!

We are a mission congregation of The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. We are a conservative congregation as we make exclusive use of the historical liturgies of the Lutheran Church.

We believe you will find no finer nor a more beautiful expression of Christian worship. We seek to give to the Lord our very best and with liturgical worship, we truly do catch a glimpse of heaven! If you are looking for a “contemporary“ worship service, you have many churches from which to choose. However, if you are seeking a divine service that features elegant and beautiful music befitting of holy and sacred worship, faithful Scriptural preaching, and a celebration of the Lord’s Supper every week, we extend to you a heartfelt invitation to visit us here at Faith Lutheran Church. Bring your family, your friends and neighbors.

Thank you again for visiting our website. We look forward to seeing and meeting you soon. God's richest blessings to you and yours in our Lord Jesus Christ.

catechetical instruction

Cody Gray and Dan Walters have been meeting with Dr. Schweitzer for catechetical instruction. They met at the soda fountain area in the Montross Pharmacy on the Winterset Square. The Small Catechism written by Martin Luther in 1529 has been a jewel of Christendom for almost 500 years. The catechism discusses the Ten Commandments, the Creed, the Lord's Prayer, Baptism, Confession, and the Lord's Supper.
