Lutheran World Relief Projects:

LWRP is an ELCA church-wide campaign to promote projects that help children and adults in impoverished countries.  These projects include mission quilts, personal care kits, school kits, fabric kits, and cash donations. Each project is assembled locally and then mailed to Lutheran World Relief Centers. From there, the projects are sent to the countries in need.   



Chrismons are white and gold ornaments made of symbols that honor the Christ Child.  They can be used on church or home Christmas trees.  Our Chrismons are usually made of beads and wire.  Class members pay for the cost of their materials.  The Chrismon class meets at 6:30 on the second Sunday of each month. Follow our First Lutheran Church Chrismons Pinterest board!
