Utilizing our time, our talent and our financial giving, there are multiple ways to respond in gratitude for all God has given us.   You do not need to be a member of this congregation to give, this opportunity is for us all.  Here are just a few suggestions:



  • If you volunteer at the Food Pantry, bring a friend with you

  • If you sing in the choir, offer to serve as the communion cantor

  • If you appreciate being greeted each Sunday morning, take a turn as a greeter

  • If you worship with us on-line, make a habit of greeting on-line worshippers.  Your connection, no matter how small, may mean a lot to someone else.


  • If you like thinking about the “big picture,” offer to serve on the council

  • If you play an instrument, practice a piece for worship and share your gift

  • If you have a paintbrush, hammer or screwdriver, volunteer to repair, paint or dismantle a project on the church grounds.

  • If you worship with us on-line, imagine how your talents could be given to those in your neighborhood or apartment building, at your work, or within your family.

TITHE (financial giving):

  • If you give $10 per week, increase your giving by $1.

  • If you write a check once in awhile, apply for Simply Giving and give based on a consistent schedule.  See this section of the website for details on how to get started.

  • If you haven’t given in a long time, or never, start this year, set a personal goal and work toward being generous.


Let these ideas generate your own ideas.  Whatever you decide to do, be generous! For it is because of God’s generosity we can be grateful for what we have and what we can give.  It is a matter of faith and faithfulness to the God who loves us.


Simply Giving

Stewardship is our joyful response to all God has done. It is a way we grow in faith and connect ourselves in a meaningful and tangible way with God's mission in the world.  Your financial gift to First Lutheran Church during this time of suspended worship services will allow us to continue our ministry together.  You may send a check or sign up for Simply Giving.  Contact the office for more information or assistance in supporting this congregation with your financial gift.
