March is Foodshare Month
For March Foodshare month we want to create a Cornucopia of Cereal.
You can help by bringing in boxes of cereal during the month of March
to be donated to the Red Wing Area Food Shelf. We encourage all
ages to participate but there will be a reward for the Sunday School/J.P.C.
class that brings in the most.
We thank you for your consideration.

Service of Healing, March 14-15
Pr. Bill and Marilee have been designing a service of healing for the weekend of March 14-15. The liturgy, music, and readings will support this special theme for the members of First Lutheran Church. Pr. Bill and his wife Diane will lead the service together and offer anointing with oil for anyone desiring inner or physical healing both during and/or after worship privately in the chapel. This service is designed to help the congregation leave behind old issues and heal from things of the past in anticipation of the call process beginning soon. We hope to see you at this special service!

We, the congregation of First Lutheran Church, proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Word and Sacrament, calling people to new life and discipleship. We grow in faith, hope and love as a community of believers through worship, prayer and study. We serve people in need by sharing God's love in our community and throughout the world.
We are part of God’s unfolding plan. When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere. When we study the Bible or hear God’s word in worship, we are drawn more deeply into God’s own saving story.
