Meet god, find life, make friends

In Children and Family ministry, we honor and support parents and guardians as the primary developers of faith in their children. We seek to partner with them as they introduce their children to a life of faith. A life centered in knowing God and finding new life in Jesus, in the context of a community gathered by the Holy Spirit. The links below are an invitation for you to join us!

Let's Frolic!

This ministry is on pause as we welcome Pastor Katie Lowe Lancaster as the Children & Family Minister.

Our VisioN

For Children & Family Ministries

Effective ministry for children and families takes seriously the culture of intentional faith formation and the leadership role of parents and non-related adults.  Building on research and best practices, First Lutheran Church commits to these six points for the sake of forming faith:

• Faith Matters • Inter-generational Life Matters • Impact Adults Matter •

• Parents Matter • Age-Specific Ministries Matter • Worship Matters •
