First Lutheran Women
Through Bible study, mission projects, visitation and fundraising, First Lutheran Women (FLW) are “sharing God’s grace.”
The purpose statement of the Women of the ELCA is:
As a community of women
created in the image of God,
called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and
empowered by the Holy Spirit,
we commit ourselves to
grow in faith,
affirm our gifts,
support one another in our callings,
engage in ministry and action, and
promote healing and wholeness
in the church,
the society, and
Our current mission project is School Kits. Items for the kits are gathered and then assembled for shipment to Lutheran World Relief.
For the month of October, FLW serves coffee at the Good Samaritan Care Center in International Falls.
FLW maintains the kitchen supplies, sponsors youth camperships, and purchases items for the church as needed. Our fundraising events are the Christmas in July Bazaar & Luncheon, and the Tour of Trees, held in December.
Funerals: FLW provides food and serves for funerals held at First Lutheran. The funeral committee contacts the calling groups who then call members for food and helping hands.
Knitting: Meets first & Third Tuesdays of the month at 10:30 am at the Home of Bette Simon
to create prayer shawls to comfort those with health issues or mourning the loss of loved ones.
