Due to conflicts for many families, the Entering Grade 6 Milestone has been rescheduled to the dates below, and the Confirmation Orientation will be THIS Sunday, August 18, at 9:15am (between services).
At First Lutheran we are deeply committed to bringing the presence of God into the lives of children everywhere they go. This Grade 6 Milestone is for the sixth grader AND their parents/guardians as they transition from elementary to middle school, and celebrates that each child is made in the image of God.
