  • 2019 Estimate of Giving First Lutheran Church’s annual appeal theme this year is THE FUTURE IS OURS IN CHRIST.  Lutherans and Lutheran Churches place Jesus as the center of our lives.  As we set our eyes on the future, we look for Jesus to continue to be with us .     

    At the church services on December 1,2 & 5, members will consecrate their estimate of giving for next year.  If you have not be able to complete your estimate of giving card yet, please download (here), print, and complete the PDF of the card. (Note: it will print off on a full sheet of paper) You may put it in the collection plate, drop it off or mail it to the church office.  Even though you are only stating an estimate of giving for next year, it is very helpful for the preparation of the 2019 church budget.
