  • The Altar Guild Needs Your Help-- One of the most essential ministries in every church, but also one of the most unseen, is the Altar Guild. Can you imagine the meal without anyone to set the table? The group has served faithfully for many years, but their numbers have declined with age. Preparing worship is truly holy work, but more hands are needed. Your church is counting on you to answer God’s call to serve.

    Meetings are not required, only some of your time a few Sundays each year. Please call the church office today about serving on the Altar Guild.

  • Time to Sign Up for Camp. We at First Lutheran know that Camp is vital to growing in your faith! That
    is why we offer camperships of all sizes for our kids to go! For our youth going into 5th grade this is
    especially great! They get a $300 campership! All other youth get a $150 campership off a full week at
    camp. And then there are other camperships for the other ages and programs! Check out VLM Camps
    and sign up for Camp Hiawatha soon! Contact Pastor Jordan for
    more information!

  • You are invited to attend a Tuesday morning Bible Study entitled “The Heart of Christianity”, Marcus Borg, a
    Professor of Religion and Culture at Oregon State University. He takes us “all the way home” by suggesting that discerning the heart of Christianity involves us in “unending dialogue”. A conversation that will no doubt continue for years. Tuesdays 11:00-12:00 noon weekly. Cost of book $10.00 stay for senior lunch!

  • Stamps for Wycliffe Bible Translators We hope you will save cancelled stamps from your mail to give to Wycliffe Bible Translators. Bring them to the Wycliffe Stamp Box in the Fellowship Hall or the Library at church! Thank You!
