Organization Description:

Faith Lutheran Church is a vital, growing urban church in one of the most diverse and rapidly changing neighborhoods in Cambridge. The majority of worshippers are in their twenties and thirties. Most of the children in the church are under eight years old. An Eritrean prayer and worship group and Calvary Praise and Worship Center are important parts of the community of Faith.

The church hosts Faith Kitchen, a community meals program for hungry people that serves about sixty people twice a month. The program is co-managed by members of Faith and the nearby synagogue.

Faith is an active member of the Boston Cambridge Mission Initiative (a coalition of Lutheran urban congregations) and the Boston Metro Conference of New England Lutheran churches.
