Today we will recognize our graduates: Madelyn Lease, Elaina Johnson and Brooklyn Koss. During worship we will present them with quilts lovingly made by our quilting ladies. We will have a prayer of blessing and hear a brief word about each of the graduates’ future plans. After worship, join the grads for cake in their honor. God bless you class of 2019.

FISH Adopt a Shelf ….Protein….

This summer June, July and August First Lutheran is adopting a shelf at FISH Food Bank. This shelf holds all kinds of protein, think heat and eat canned meals. Such as beef stew, chili, chili mac, ravioli, corned beef hash and chicken & dumplings. (No tuna fish.) Generic is fine, and bringing one or two kinds will also work. This shelf holds a lot of variety! Please just bring them to church with you and fill our food bank box. We would like to provide 50 cans a week.
