2016-17 Church Directory

Do you ever wonder whom you are sitting next to in church? Are you praying for someone and wish you could put a face to that name? Are you new to First Lutheran and wish you had help with putting a name to the people you see? Join us in November as we welcome Lifetouch Church Directories and Portraits! There will be no cost to you or the church, and you will receive a complimentary 8X10 color portrait. You will also have an opportunity immediately after your session to purchase additional portraits. What a great opportunity this will be to make everlasting memories to keep for yourself and to share with family and friends.

“Seek the kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”

Matthew 6:33

Matthew 6:33

Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.Acts 2:46 and 47
