The bell choir is in need of a few more players. You do not need to be able to read music, we can help you with that :) Practice is one night a week, currently Mondays. We play each season, about every 4-6 weeks. Contact the church office or speak with George Fattman or any bell member. 

First Lutheran provides the following worship opportunities:

Let us pray:


May we who have the luxury of working from home
    remember those who must choose between

    preserving their health or making their rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close
    remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips
    remember those who have no safe place to go.
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of  the economic market
    remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home
    remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country,
Let us choose love.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.
