Welcome to Faith

We are a Christ-centered church which is part of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS), located in Riverside, California.

At Faith, we have been carrying out a Gospel Ministry of sharing Jesus since 1937. We celebrated our 75th anniversary year in 2012!

It is our mission to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all of God's children and connect them to the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12). We also recognize that Christians are to be a family of believers and so we want to build one another up in the Body of Christ to be more like Jesus each day!

We extend a warm welcome to you and invite you to worship with us each Sunday.

Former Faith Lutheran Church President Dennis Allen Hibler Obituary

Dennis Allen Hibler, 70, of Westpoint, IN, formerly of Riverside, CA began his new life with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Sunday, April 22, 2018.
Dennis was born on May 15, 1947 in Riverside, CA. He was the only child of the late Rodney A. and Petra T. (Fluvog) Hibler. Dennis excelled in archery and bowling, and he was an avid bass fisherman. His many years of experience as a professional bowler allowed him to mentor to many young bowlers as they learned to perfect their game. His kind heart and generous spirit will be fondly remembered by all who knew him. He enjoyed serving the Lord through various positions of leadership and service at several Lutheran churches throughout his lifetime. Dennis especially loved spending time with his family. Each of his grandchildren held a special place in his heart.
His marriage was to Deborah J. (Carter) Kervin on February 13, 2005 in Riverside, CA. She survives. In 2005 they moved from California to Indiana.
Surviving with his wife, are his children, Debi Dart-Donaldson of San Diego, CA; Donelle (Richard) Shockley of Westpoint, IN; Diana Weeks of Lockport, NY; Heather (Rick) Hensley of West Lafayette, IN; Aaron (Tia) Kervin of Lafayette, IN; and Garrett Smith of Riverside, CA; 14 grandchildren; and one great grandchild.
A service to celebrate Dennis’ life will be held at 4:00 p.m., Saturday, April 28, 2018 at Redeemer Lutheran Church (510 E Lindberg Avenue, West Lafayette, IN 47906.) Pastor Joe Townsend officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Redeemer Lutheran Church Education Fund. Share memories and condolences at www.hippensteelfuneralservice.com
