Partners in community and faith

together in community

The people of First Lutheran partner with a number of agencies and other ministries both in our local community and around the world. This helps us fulfill Jesus' command to "love one another" and also helps us reach and assist people who might not be comfortable walking into a large, formal church building like ours.
