New Members/Inquirer’s Classes: Sundays Nov 11&18 and Dec 2 & 9 at 11:30 am in the chapel. Anyone who is interested in joining First Lutheran Church, or simply wants a little refresher on what Lutherans believe is invited to attend these four classes after Sunday worship services. We’ll meet for an hour or less with Pastor Dennis in the chapel room and read together Dan Erlander’s great little book, “Baptized We Live.” Please plan on attending all four of the classes. It’s a great time to ask questions and get to know some of your brothers and sisters in Christ.

All Ministries: Sunday, December 9th after worship. If you are on Stewardship, Congregational Life, Property Management, Education, Outreach, Youth or Worship & Music.

If you have thought about serving on one of these ministries, December 9th is a great time to learn more. Everyone is welcome.
