A congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)


Centered in God

This is the worshiping aspect of our ministry--how we grow in in seeing God’s love all around us.
Ritual would include worship services and support, devotional guides and preparation, prayer, scripture reading, etc. 


Sent to Serve

This is the missional aspect of our ministry--how we live out God’s love to community.
Engage would include service opportunities like mission trips, Harvest Table, Feeding Brookings, Christmas Dinner, Habitat for Humanity, etc. 


Brought together in Christ

This is the socializing aspect of our ministry--how we become a community of care and support. This is where we grow in connection to God and in connection to our neighbor.
Connect is where we grow together in community through meals, activities, studies, etc. 

RECreating First Lutheran

First Lutheran is a community engaging life and the world by and through God's gift of grace. To do this, we need you involved. This survey will help us reach out to invite you to participate where you want to be involved. Some of this we are already doing, and would love your involvement; some we'd like to grow or strengthen; some are hopes and starter ideas on the way to something new. Bring your ideas and your vision for making God's love and grace visible.
