  • Propery Wish List

  • The high school kids that are attending 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston, TX are planning a First Lutheran 125th Anniversary Cookbook. These cookbooks will be on sale late in the year 2017. We need our entire congregation’s help in gathering recipes to be published. All sorts of recipes are needed! These books can serve as a snapshot and a way to record our church’s history. Please talk it up amongst your Bible study groups, your families, and your neighbors. Dig deep in your cupboards and submit as many recipes as you would like…we want your favorites. Help make this a great publication! Oh…if anyone has FLC pictures throughout history, we would love to include those. We will copy and return the photos :) Please submit your photos and neatly printed recipes to Lori Packer or Dori McMillan, mailbox #44 (please include your name on the recipes and photos). They can be hand printed or computer generated…just legible.

  • Reminder: Those who work with the Youth are required to fill out the background check and submit it to the Church office. This includes all Sunday School Teachers, Confirmation Guides, Mentors, and anyone else that volunteers with our Youth. Blank forms are located in the Narthex Slat Wall Display. Thank You – Safety Committee
