Welcome to Prairie Faith Shared Ministry. Located in north central Kansas, six ELCA Lutheran congregations have stepped out in faith to enter into a truly shared ministry. We strive to provide the best tools for our members to grow as disciples of Christ and to proclaim the Good News of Christ within our communities and throughout the world. We hope you will join us at one of our churches for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.
HAVE YOU MADE YOUR APPOINTMENT?
CALL NOW TO GET THE BEST TIME!
We need YOU to make our directory complete! To celebrate our church families and strengthen the bond within our congregations, we have made the commitment to produce a new fellowship pictorial directory. Lifetouch is providing the directory at no cost to our churches. Plus, every family photographed receives a complimentary directory and an 8x10 portrait! You can sign up at the church on Sunday mornings for the next few weeks to have your photo taken at any of the three locations.

Meet the new Intern! Jon Brudvig writes:
Having been born, raised, and educated in Wisconsin, I proudly claim my identity as a Green Bay Packer fanatic. Though my graduate studies at the College of William & Mary and subsequent career as a historian, honors program director, and administrator made it hard to follow the Packers on a weekly basis, I was always able to find a few Packer fans in the community. I am hoping that the same may be true as I relocate to the heart of Chiefs and Broncos territory. In addition to my passion for the Packers, I enjoy playing golf, fishing, spending time hiking in the outdoors, and riding motorcycles (unfortunately I sold my bike when I entered seminary). Like previous PFSM interns Paul Rosin and Eric Grayvold, I will be moving to Kansas by myself. Thank you in advance for your willingness to accompany me on my year-long internship journey. I look forward to meeting all of you soon. Go Packers!
