ROCHELLE — On April 14, 1963, Faith Lutheran Church opened doors to the City of Rochelle with an Easter morning service that consisted of 207 attendees. Fifty years later, the church has more than doubled its attendance rate with 476 baptized members.

In order to celebrate this landmark, a few celebrations will be held in honor of the church’s 50th year of operation as part of a theme titled “Faith Lutheran: 50 years and Faithful.”

The first celebratory event will consist of a free concert to the public on Saturday, April 13, at 7 p.m. “Epiphany,” a Christian rock group from Rockford, will delight the crowd. The event will be free of charge, however, good will donations will be collected for the Rochelle Christian Food Pantry.
