For 10 years Seeds of Faith Lutheran, a mission congregation in Lisbon, Iowa, has billed itself as “a church without walls … built of people instead of bricks.” Until now.
Seeds of Faith Lutheran Church, Lisbon, Iowa, is literally being built by the members.
In 1999 the congregation began gathering in the Lisbon Community School lunchroom, then moved to Mount Vernon High School — even meeting in the band room.

They hope to be in their church in August.
