The mission committee coordinates the outreach and social service ministries of the congregation. Committee members keep the community informed about congregational activities, provide opportunities for welcoming visitors and new members, and coordinate the congregation’s involvement in mission projects and social service ministries.
The Evangelism Committee welcomes visitors to First Lutheran Church, encourages visitors to return and participate in our church family. As part of the congregation, the committee promotes the congregation in the community thru social media, newspaper advertising, and radio broadcasts. The committee supports greeters, coffee hours, congregational picnics and outreach opportunities in the community.
If you are interested in finding out more about First Lutheran or are interested in joining the congregation call the office and ask.
Throughout the calendar year members of the congregation are invited to gather for fellowship by going to concerts or plays together, enjoying the annual picnic and auction, or gathering in Fireside for coffee and fellowship following worship.

If you enjoy quilting join others on Friday mornings during fall, winter and spring to design and create beautiful quilts to be sent to Lutheran World Relief. Our quilters make quilts which are sent across the globe and here at home. See their bulletin board in the hallway for a pictorial view of the quilts they made in 2019.
