Give to FLC

Thank you for giving to the mission and ministries of First Lutheran Church to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. If you have questions about giving to First Lutheran Church, please contact Jody Bymers.

budget update, may 2019

As you know, this past winter brought severe cold and snow that seemed to always happen on the weekends! The weather affects our worship attendance, and lower attendance affects giving. Please take a moment to review your giving through the past four months, and if you are able, please consider a gift to help close the gap between our expected and actual giving. Every gift is greatly appreciated!

Regular automatic giving is a wonderful option, as it ensures you give even if you are unable to attend. It is secure, confidential, and easy. Sign up today!

Simply Giving is a secure, automated option for your offering to First Lutheran Church general fund or specified ministry. Your gift is automatically deducted from your checking or savings account or charged to a credit or debit card, weekly, semi-monthly, or monthly. To set up automated giving, choose weekly or monthly on the donation frequency line.

For payments for camp registrations, trips, or classes, or for donations to ministries not listed below, please enter your donation amount in the Special Gifts option of the form and specify the ministry.
