The members of First Lutheran are active in the community, and we strive to serve our neighbors as they may need.
As Christians we believe in the power of prayer. We continually include the safety and health of our neighbors and community in our prayers.
We act on our faith in support of our prayers. We may be able to help with a ride, hot meal, or a listening ear. Many of our activities are intended as a "no pressure" and "no committment" way of quietly helping our neighbors.
We aren't professional counselors, but we do listen well without judging. If you are struggling with a difficult issue or have questions about "how God works", please, please contact Pastor Maschke in the Church Office for a confidential and private meeting. If we can't help, we will try to place you in contact with the proper resources.
First Lutheran Church invites you to use our prayer chain. The prayer chain consists of a group of church members who will pray for you and your family in time of crisis or need. Your requests are taken in all seriousness and kept in strictest confidence; shared outside the chain only with your direction and permission.
Meals for Kids
(And adults, too.) If the “cook” of your household is temporarily unavailable for any reason - hospitalized, out of town due to emergency, illness etc. - allow us to help you. We will deliver meals suitable for a family to your home. Call or email the Church Office (see above) with your name, address, and the number of adults and children in your family. Let us know if your family has any food allergies or cannot eat certain foods
That’s Socks, Blankets/Sleeping Bags, Coats and Gloves
We are seeking new crew socks (all sizes), and new or gently used blankets, sleeping bags, coats (all sizes), and gloves, to share with people who need some help keeping warm. These items will be distributed at the Giving Thanks at Thanksgiving dinner offered at First Lutheran Church on Thanksgiving Day. Monetary donations are also greatly appreciated and may be submitted using the secure "Simply Giving" link on our website.
