Spelse and Unterhaltung Spass fuer die ganze Familie!
A brief history:
FaithFest began as an outdoor celebration in 1991 when Faith Lutheran Church was located on St. Peter Street in Stephenville, Texas. Its original purpose was to raise money for the building fund when the present day facility was a distant dream. Booths were set up that sold all sorts of German foods. There were also craft booths, the Leastiger Besitz Verkauf (White Elephant Sale), games for the kids, and the Weihnachten (Christmas) Market, which displayed and sold nativity scenes, Christmas ornaments, and other holiday items.
Faithfest has since evolved to be simply a time to celebrate our heritage, remember the Reformation, enjoy German food, music, and Norwegian dancers. We fellowship with the community and have a special KidFest room. Not only that, but we have a Silent Auction where the proceeds are donated to a variety of organizations. The Heritage Room, which contains German, Scandinavian, other European artifacts, Reformation, and nostalgia has been recently added. As we have continued to grow, we are excited that FaithFest is now held in our Faith Family Center. Our youth also help to serve you. We hope that you enjoy FaithFest! It’s held in late October or Early November every year!
Norwegian folk dancers and special music entertain diners feasting on traditional German food and tasty desserts.
