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.

In addition, the First Lutheran Endowment Fund was established in 1990 to  enhance the mission of First Lutheran Church apart from the general operation of the congregation.  Here is more information about the Endowment Fund.
