The Food Pantry is available to the public the second
and fourth Thursday of every month from 1:00-2:30 pm.
A photo I.D. with current address is required.
On the second Sunday of each month we have a
“Noisy Offering." The congregation places loose change
in cans in the offering trays. This money is used to support
ELCA World Hunger, a program that addresses hunger
and poverty around the world through relief, development
and education. The “Noisy Offering” also helps to support
the First Lutheran Food Pantry.
