Youth and Family Ministries

“Hear, O Israel: the Lord is our God, the Lord alone. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem on your forehead, and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” Deuteronomy 6:4-9

Youth & Family Ministries of First Lutheran Church care for God’s children in the many ages and stages of life beginning with birth and baptism. This ministry teaches families God's promise given in baptism and shares the gospel so that faith in Jesus Christ is the foundation of their homes.
