At First Lutheran there are many opportunities to serve in the church, the community and the world.  

 

Ways We Transform Lives

Following Christ’s example to show love by assisting globally to reduce poverty, serving nationally to help those in need and working locally to reduce hunger and homelessness.

Our goals are to focus on feeding the hungry and fighting homelessness while offering other opportunities to serve and to invite others to participate in this faith community.    We also focus on children and other general ministries.

ENDOWMENT FUND

Endowment is Telling Your Faith Story Beyond Your Lifetime

FLC General Endowment fund was created 1990 to provide members and friends a special opportunity to continue its mission of outreach far into the future. Contributions to this fund are maintained in perpetuity but the interest helps provide financial strength to the Church’s vision and community needs beyond the annual budget. Since its creation we have added a second directed endowment in 1996 called the Taylor Moser Youth Fund to benefit the children and youth of FLC. Both funds have generated valuable support for our community. A third fund was added in 1999, the Milli Link Fund, which is a scholarship fund for students studying organ at three universities. Funds are distributed annually through a grant process evaluated by a six member endowment committee. For more information click on the topics below:
