Servant Opportunities

Here at First Lutheran we say that our purpose, or the reason we are here, is to nurture a joyful, healthy community in the name of Jesus. And that the vision of this congregation of believers is to be FIRST…Servants of All.

 

We take seriously the servant posture of our Lord Jesus Christ Mark 10:44. We want to be like him: to learn, love, live, and leave a legacy. We believe that serving God through our service to others is a privilege. “We preach Christ crucified with ourselves as Servants for Jesus’ sake.” 2 Corinthians 4:5.

 

Check this page often for ways that you can serve and see the face of Christ in your neighbor.

 

Baskets of Promise

We participated in this project for Lutheran World Relief during Lent.   We collected supplies to prepare 82 kits! The kits give people around the world tools to stay healthy in life’s most challenging situations.  Thank you for providing a means to preserve dignity and give hope to others.

 

Here are the items in each kit:

  • Two bars of soap, 4-5 ounce, any brand in original wrapping
  • Bath towel, lightweight, 52”X27” max, dark color is best
  •  Toothbrush, adult size, in original packaging
  • Comb
  • Nail clipper, metal, attached file optional

Paint A Thon

This community project of Oasis Central Minnesota provides home repair and exterior painting of homes in the area for homeowners in need. First Lutheran has provided a painting team for many years. This year’s paint date is Saturday, August 5. In just a few hours the team makes a big difference in someone’s life. If you can be a part of this project to help a local resident, please contact the church office.  We will need painters for paint day and/or folks who can help prepare the house for painting prior to paint day. Many thanks to long-time coordinators from First Lutheran, Jerome and Karen Haaland.

Here is part of the 2015 painting team – Thank you!
