In addition to worship and education activities, there are several opportunities for people to get involved in the life of our faith community.
Quilters & LWR projects
People from both First and the community gather on Friday afternoons at 1:00 pm to make quilts for Lutheran World Relief (LWR) and to meet occasional local needs. Everyone is welcome to join in at any time. The most recent quilts made are on display in the worship area. To see pictures of their quilts, click here.
In addition to making quilts for Lutheran World Relief, this group, with the assistance of the youth and the entire congregation, also creates and packages a variety of kits that are sent around the world for people who need them. Donations of items for the kits may be made year round, and the kits are packaged and sent, along with the quilts, to LWR in October of each year.

Every Friday at 10:00 am the coffee pot is on in the fellowship hall and there are often goodies as well. This offers a comfortable setting for anyone in the community to come together with others for a cup of coffee and a smattering of grace. All are welcome to participate whenever convenient.
Lectionary Bible Study
The lessons for the upcoming Sunday are discussed during a brief bible study on Friday mornings at 11:00. Come for coffee, stay for bible study. Bring your own or use one of the bibles provided.
Using Spiritual Gifts and Volunteering
From worship leadership to home visitation; from counting the offerings to helping children worship on Sunday morning; from serving on the council to washing dishes after a potluck, there is a place for you in our ministry.
