Ministries & Outreach

Cold Weather Shelter

In Collaboration with 6 other churches in the Valley,  our the First Lutheran Church hosts a Cold Weather Shelter (CWS)  for the homeless on Thursday nights. The CWS runs from Mid November through March.  Volunteers are needed to help check people in, bring food for our guests and to help people up in the mornings. 

For more information, please visit the HopeSource website.

Weekend Nutrition

First Lutheran Church currently supplies elementary schools Lincoln, Ida Nason, and Damman a total of 41 bags each week during the school year for Weekend Nutrition.  Each of these bags contain food for 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, and 2 dinners.  They are hugely appreciated by all three schools, and, we have been told, is the only food some of the children see all weekend.  Thank you, First Lutheran, for your generous support of this important outreach.
