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.

LIVE NATIVITY AT CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING
Dear PFSM Families – Hard to believe that Thanksgiving (Nov 27) is right around the corner and PFSM has again decided to SHARE THE GOOD NEWS with a Live Nativity at WaKeeney’s Annual Tree lighting, Saturday, November 29. Sharing HIS Good News is our Mission!!! Help is needed and in particular with characters for our event. I know that everyone wants to enjoy tree lighting and see Santa so I have split the times for the stable. I can’t help but smile to think about little angels and shepherds running throughout downtown even if they don’t hang out at the stable for a long time. If you and/or members of your family could help us SHARE THE GOOD NEWS please participate. Angel wings can be made from poster board & tinsel; shepherds heads can be covered with a dishtowel. A large robe can easily slide over their coats to keep them warm. If you need help with a costume call Lynelle Shubert so that she can round one up for you. Also let her know if your angels/shepherds would like to be at the stable for a little while or simply dress up and wander through town. Lynelle is also seeking Mary and Joseph with a shepherd and angel or two that do need to be at the stable for an allotted amount of time during the evening. The “shifts” are from 5:00 – 6:15 and 6:15 – 7:30. (Santa usually arrives to light to tree @ 6:15) If you would like to help set-up we will be setting up Saturday morning, November 29 at 10:00a.m. on the West side of courthouse square. If you can help tear down we will be cleaning up Sunday afternoon, November 30th at 1:00 p.m. Please call LYNELLE SHUBERT or you can email LYNELLE @RURALTEL.NET.
