Prayer Chain First Lutheran’s prayer chain is an important ministry of our congregation as we pray for the special needs of others.  The ministry includes a network of people who share prayer requests for God’s help, comfort, strength and healing, as well as prayers of praise and thanksgiving. Prayer chain members pray immediately when a request is received and also include the request during their personal prayer time.  Prayer requests are then passed on to other prayer chain members by phone.  Each member calls one person who passes on the prayer request to the next member. We also have an email list for those who would like to receive the prayer request without being part of a calling chain. If you would like to be a part of our prayer chain or email list, please see Carla Bergman or contact the church office.

First Communion Classes Sundays Feb 25 & March 4 after worship I am inviting all young people in about 3rd grade or older to two classes on the Lord’s Supper.  I will leave it up to parents as to when you think your child is ready to receive holy communion.  The book we use, “A Place for You” by Pastor Dan Erlander is written at about a 3rd grade reading level.  We will also look up some Bible passages and each student is asked to create a first communion project out of paper/clay/fabric/wood/legos/paint or just about anything.  We will meet in the chapel. If there are students older than 3rd grade, who are not yet receiving the bread and wine of the Lord’s Supper, but would like to, you are certainly welcome to join in.  The plan would be for students to receive their first communion on March 12th, or any time after that.  If kids have not been baptized yet, we will need to talk about that. Please let Pastor Dennis know if you are coming 925-2844 or flceburg@yahoo.com
