Giving is something we do with a spirit of joy in response to all the blessings we have been given. Through Christ, we freely receive love, forgiveness, and the promise of eternal life in heaven. God also gives us the food we eat, clothes we wear, homes we live in, our jobs and incomes, and the free will to decide how we spend the money He provides us. Thank you to our members and visitors who financially contribute to support our work and ministry. Your gifts work to help those in need and drive our mission: “Sharing Christ, Changing Lives.”

First Lutheran Church offers three ways to help financially support our ministry:

In-Person – You can always make gifts via cash and checks – they can be given during Worship Service or delivered/mailed to the church office.
