Flowers for today are provided by Dewey & Joan Keith in honor of their 59th wedding anniversary.

Being baptized today is Henrietta Grace Fessler. She is the daughter of Doug & Minda Fessler. Her sponsor in baptism is Lisa Saucier. We welcome you, Henrietta, into the Family of God!

Celebrate our newest baby, Henrietta Fessler, (who will soon be 3 1/2 months)! Today, there will be a potluck puncheon after worship and baptism. For those who wish, you may contribute to a giving tree.

Special giving to F.I.S.H. for March was $1,251.00.

Compassion Sunday April 22, 2018 “Say Yes” Matthew 25:35-36 “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat; I was thirty and you gave me something to drink; I was a stranger and you invited me in; I needed clothes and you clothed me. I was sick and you looked after me; I was in prison and you came to visit me.” Sponsor a child and change their life by releasing them from poverty as you nourish them spiritually, physically, emotionally and mentally. You will be blessed to be a blessing. Visit the sign-up table at church or call Laurae at 925-3098 for more information. Thank you.

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.
