Making CookiesCookies for First Responders

Once a year, we show our appreciation for all those who

dedicate their lives for the safety and well-being of

others-First Responders. Homemade cookies are donated

and delivered to Fire Stations, the Police Department,

Galesburg Hospital Ambulance Service (G.H.A.S.),

and Emergency Rooms.






Heart ScreeningHealthy Heart Screenings

Every other month, in our Parish Hall after worship,

a volunteer nurse takes and records blood pressures.

Call the Church Office at 309-343-3176 for the next

Healthy Heart Screening date.









Mitten TreeMitten Tree

One Sunday during the month of December our youth

collect from the congregation hundreds of donated

mittens, scarves, hats, and socks during the Sunday

Children’s Time service. Then they decorate a tree at

the front of the church sanctuary with all the collected gifts.


After the service the items are divided, packaged and

delivered to three local grade schools and to the local

Lutheran Social Services of Illinois.







Homebound MinistryMinistry to Homebound


There are several programs set up to include those who

are no longer able to join us during church service.

Sunday sermons on CD’s and the CD player, if needed,

are available for delivery. Call the Church Office at

309-343-3176 if you would like to have a copy of the

sermons on CD or if you are willing to deliver the CD’s

to shut-ins.

We are thankful to all those who deliver these gifts to our

members who are no longer able to join us on Sundays.









Birthday CakeBirthday Cakes for GHS North Students

What does First Lutheran Church really, really do well?

We feed people! Our Outreach Committee, in meeting

with Jason Spring, Principal of GHS North – came up with

an idea to make students feel like they matter to us. We’ll

bake them a birthday cake! We have birthdates (or half for

summer birthdays) and give the kids a few options for

favorite cake. We have cake pans and box mixes. All you

need to do is take and bake.
