Faith Lutheran Church and School, located in Syosset, NY, is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) serving the communities in the northern portion of the Town of Oyster Bay and surrounding areas. We are one of eleven congregations of the East Nassau Conference of the ELCA’s Metropolitan New York Synod, the larger church body’s regional geographic territory. Faith strives to remain a warm and inviting place where people of our community can draw closer to the mercy and love of God in Jesus Christ.
Our Lutheran heritage identifies with the theology of Martin Luther, the leader of the 16th Century Reformation movement in Germany. For those with other Christian faith tradition backgrounds considering joining us for worship, please be comforted in knowing our liturgical worship experience is similar to Roman Catholic and other mainline Protestant faith traditions. Our ministries further extend beyond the worship space and we live the Gospel through service to others and God’s creation.
Reflecting Luther’s rightly stressed view that education is above all a community endeavor, Faith is proud to offer a premier loving, caring Nursery School program for those of all faith traditions that share a moral ethic of honesty, love and care for others. Our faith heritage reminds us that perhaps the greatest responsibility as caretakers and nurturers of our children’s minds and spirits, as well as their bodies, is that we are called to provide exemplary childhood education that helps children grow to discover their talents, interests and, indeed sense of purpose in the world.
We welcome you!
Pastor Bob Kasting
