A group of First Lutheran members have initiated a new Faith Alive mission. Their goal is to “keep-in-touch” with our fellow members who are home bound.
The visitation team will keep Faith Alive with phone calls, home visits or by mailing notes to remind “at home” members that our church loves and cares about them.
Please notify the church office using the form below if you’re aware of an individual or care giver who is either long or short-term home bound.
The final day to turn in funds raised to cover Sugar Creek registration expenses for summer 2018 is Sunday, May 27. Thanks!
