NEW MEMBER SESSIONS

First Lutheran welcomes all people to participate in Christ’s mission through our ministries, worship and programs, whether you are a member or not. Membership does, however, benefit our congregation. If you’re a member, we know your contact information, can more easily provide you with ministry opportunities and invite you to offer your gifts to the rest of this family of faith. The next new member session will be Sunday, September 27, with new member Sunday on October 4. Children are welcome to be present. To register your family or ask questions, call our church office at 608.783.2236 or email office@firstlu.org.
