Holy Week and Easter Worship

First Lutheran Church offers worship throughout Holy Week: Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday (Easter Vigil), and Easter Sunday.

Wall of Thankful Giving – Youth Fundraiser

Beginning on Palm Sunday, visit the Wall of Thankful Giving in Fellowship Hall and choose an envelope with a donation amount.  Leave your money and envelope in the church offering or bring to the office!  Feel free to take more than one! All proceeds raised will go to camperships to Camp Ewalu and the 2018 ELCA Houston Youth Gathering!  Thank you for your generous support! (This fundraiser is in lieu of our annual Giving Thanks with Thankful Giving event; our committee has decided it is time to take a year break from that event. Thank you for all of your support for our youth through Giving Thanks and now through our Wall of Giving!)

2018 EPIC Scholarships

The First Lutheran Trust Fund is now accepting applications for the 2018 EPIC (Educational Partners In Covenant) Scholarship Program, which provides fully enrolled college students with scholarship money that is matched by participating ELCA colleges.  First Lutheran is delighted to be able to support students within our congregation by offering $1,000 scholarships for the 2018-19 academic year.

Applications are available for download here or can be picked up in the church office.  Applications must be filled out completely and returned to the church office by April 15.  Students need to reapply each year in order to continue to receive the scholarship. If an application is late, there is no guarantee that funding will still be available. The Gipp Family Scholarship Fund supports a student from the FLC congregation in their first year attending Luther College. Eligible students will be identified from their EPIC applications.  For more information, please contact Kirsten Heine at 735-5358.
