What’s Happening at First Lutheran
BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS
Join us for a “Blessing of the Animals” celebration on Saturday, Oct 4th, at 10 a.m. on the front lawn at First Lutheran. Pets must be on a leash or in a carrier. Depending on the number attending, we will try to provide an individual blessing for each pet. Some animals may be difficult to transport. If you are not able to bring your pet, bring a photograph of your pet or contact the church office with the name of your pet. Your pet will then be named in a special blessing.

Welcome to First Lutheran
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.
