A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the Scheels Arena, on Tuesday, Dec. 7,  in recognition of Faith Lutheran Church's 75th Anniversary of ministry and the expanding of that ministry through Journey in Faith.

  Faith Lutheran Church and Journey in Faith are one church with two locations.  Journey in Faith currently worships at the Scheels Arena at 10 a.m. on Sunday morning. Journey's future building site is located on Fortieth Avenue East, just west of the Sheyenne Ninth Grade Center in West Fargo. The second site will consist of a multi-purpose facility accommodating space for youth ministry as well as worship space for Journey Worship.

Approximately 45 individuals from the West Fargo Chamber of Commerce, staff and congregation members of Faith Lutheran Church and Journey in Faith, and staff from the Scheels Arena attended the ceremony that included a short program, DVD presentations, and refreshments.
