Simply Giving Program

Simply Giving® is an automated giving program designed to help you conveniently and consistently contribute to our congregation. Through Simply Giving, your gifts are made through a pre-authorized withdrawal from your bank account. You determine the frequency of your automatic gift—weekly, semi-monthly or monthly—the option is yours. Your gift is deposited into First Lutheran’s bank account on the same day it is withdrawn from your account—at no cost to you. Click here for the application form.  Please also see our online giving page for other ways to give electronically.

How do I get married at First Lutheran Church

Marriage can be described as a legal agreement, a social event or an emotional bond of love between two people. But most importantly, it is a relationship instituted by God and entered into by two persons of faith. Choosing to be married in the Church indicates that God will be a central focus in your lives together. The wedding service is a worship service which celebrates your commitment to each other and affirms your mutual faith and trust in God.
