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.

To be held at St. John Lutheran Church, a potluck dinner will follow. Bishop Gustafson will be preaching, all loose offering will go to the “Hunger Walk” (funds will stay local: Ellis County Transient Fund & Trego County Food Pantry) that Intern Marie is planning.




Did you know? 

Nearly 15 million children in the United States- 21 percent of its children- live in families with incomes below the federal poverty level- $22,350 a year for a family of four.

1.5 out of 10 Kansans are Food Insecure.


Do you want to help make a difference?

The Trego and Ellis community will be having a Hunger Walk on Sunday, May 4, 2014 at 2:00 pm in WaKeeney. We will be raising funds for the Ellis Relief Fund, the WaKeeney Helping Hands Fund, and collecting food for both the Ellis and WaKeeney Food Pantries.

If you are interested in walking and/or raising funds through pledges contact Intern Marie at sjlcellis@gbta.net">sjlcellis@gbta.net or 875-726-3207. Also keep your eyes peeled for updates as they come available as to the route of the walk, walker meetings, and how else you can be involved before the walk begins. Hope to see you out for a good cause on walk day.
