Wellington Heights Community Church

First Lutheran has had a long connection and interest with the Wellington Heights neighborhood, serving people primarily through the Saturday Evening Meals Program (SEMP) and the summer lunch program in collaboration with St. Paul’s Methodist Church. FLC leadership believes that entering into a shared partnership with the Wellington Heights Community Church will serve the Gospel in many ways, both in supporting outreach into the community, and in receiving the gifts of the Spirt for reconciliation and peace from that ministry.
