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.

Prairie Faith Church Directory in the works!!


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. A new directory:

• Becomes a lasting record of our current membership

• Introduces our churches to friends, the community

• Enhances fellowship by helping us visually connect faces with names

• Becomes a communication tool for our congregations

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.


Thursday, August 21 – 2:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.- Bethlehem

Friday, August 22 - 2:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.- Bethlehem

Saturday, August 23 – 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. – Bethlehem

Tuesday, August 26 – 2:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. – Our Redeemer

Wednesday, August 27 – 2:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. –St. John

Thursday, August 28 – 2:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. –St. John

You may make an appointment following worship or call the church office at 785-743-2005.

For your convenience, all photography and portrait viewing will take place at the time of your photo session. You will have a variety of poses taken; one pose will be selected for the directory. In addition to your complimentary 8xl0, you will have the opportunity to purchase additional portraits at attractive prices on the day of your portrait session.

You also have the opportunity to invite your extended family and have portraits made with everyone together. Just schedule together and add additional time spots for each of your extended family units. Each family unit will be photographed and receive their own complimentary 8x10 portrait. Lifetouch will then photograph generational poses with everyone together, grandparents and grandkids, or any special poses you would like to have. The additional families count towards our program but will not necessarily be included in our directory.

In addition, think about the outreach opportunity if “every family brings a family”! Invite a family or friend in your neighborhood to come and receive their own complimentary 8x10 portrait.


Meet the new Intern! Jon Brudvig writes:

Brudvig JonHaving 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!
