THANK YOU!

bat2Thanks to generous donations from church members and the community, our “Home Runs for Hunger” fund raising campaign raised over $2,110 for our Food Pantry.  The campaign ran from January 1st through Easter.  Thank you for your wonderful support for this caring ministry!

 

dsc_0176Many thanks to Heritage Senior Living in West Allis for their generous gift of $1,300 to our Food Pantry. Money was raised from a community lunch held in February, and the proceeds were then given to the First Lutheran Food Pantry. Heritage staff presented a check to First Lutheran on April 10th, and they stayed and volunteered at the pantry.

Welcome to First Lutheran

Welcome

From Pastor Peterson

Dear Friends in Christ

I greet you with this word from Matthew 28:19 & 20 – “Go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.”

These are the words of Jesus recorded at the very end of the Gospel of Matthew. Then Jesus adds “And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” These words give us our purpose as a church. We are to go and tell others of the wonderful news of Jesus as long as we are here on this earth. And Jesus has promised to be very near us and help us every step of the way.

I invite you to come and worship our risen Lord Jesus Christ with us and join into the work of telling the world that there is a Savior.
