Summer Worship Reminders

  • Over the summer, our nursery is not staffed. It is still available for parents to use along with their children. We also have up a child-friendly area set up in the back of the sanctuary for families to use!
  • Summer choir will sing July 22 and August 19. All are welcome! Meet at 8:30 a.m. in the Fireside Room on these Sundays to prepare a simple anthem for worship.
  • We are looking for musicians to provide special music during any of our worship services this summer (Saturday and Sunday!). Contact Jennaya Robison.
  • Sign up in the fellowship hall to serve and provide treats for summer fellowship hour.

Youth Gathering Follow-Up

Thanks be to God for safe travels for all the youth and adult leaders who ventured to Houston and back for the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering.

It was an amazing and challenging week. As you prepare to welcome back our youth and adults, please read this important letter from Pastor Melissa: This Changes Everything – A Word about the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering

Please take the opportunity to ask our youth about their experiences. Continue to pray for them. Keep your eyes on the FLC FB page as we begin to share videos of some of our evening speakers.

Nordic Fest Dinner Volunteers

First Lutheran Church is again hosting our annual Nordic Fest Norwegian dinner on July 28, 2018. It takes many volunteers to make this dinner a success!

Volunteer opportunities include cooking, set-up, serving, hosting, and clean-up. Sign up to make a salad, or volunteer to run the dishwasher, or sign up for a two-hour shift to keep the lefse trays full during the dinner! All are welcome to participate – we need you! and plan to help make it another successful year.

Contact Diann Marten, Marsha Wenthold, and Bev Christen to learn more about volunteer opportunities and to sign up. Tickets for the dinner go on sale beginning July 2 ($15 for adults and $7 for kids).
