2013 Time and Talent Survey – How do you respond to the call for stewardship in your faith journey? With so much happening at First Lutheran, you may find yourself thinking of ways that your time, or talent, or resources would fit into God’s work going on at First Lutheran. Or maybe what you have in mind is something different than what’s currently happening here. Please take a few minutes to fill out the 2013 Time and Talent Survey. Blank forms are in the office. There is a basket for completed forms. Giving is an act of faith, growing out of a relationship with Jesus. Be faithful to God, as he is faithful to us.
