Prayer Candles




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.

October 29, 2017—Joint Service

Bethlehem Lutheran Church - 10:30 a.m.

500th Anniversary of the Reformation


Join us for this historic milestone celebration as we come together to give a confident and joyful witness of the life and freedom in Jesus Christ that is for all. The service will begin at 10:30 a.m. at Bethlehem Lutheran Church with a potluck dinner to follow.

After the potluck dinner PFSM will hold it’s first ever Annual meeting and the 2018 PFSM budget will be presented for review, this will also be a forum for sharing concerns and joys of our ministry. As you know from prior newsletters, this is to follow up the discussion from the joint service in April led by Steve Parke.

The loose offering for the day will go toward the fund that has been set up for those in need in WaKeeney due to the hail storm in August.




Zion is having a  Reformation 500 Bookstore! 

Stop by the Zion basement any Sunday after church between now and October 22nd, or call Pastor Jon at 785-769-3006 for an appointment. On October 29th, the books will be displayed at Bethlehem during the potluck following the combined service. At our bookstore, you can get fascinating books on the Reformation for you and your family.
