Social Ministry News

Buena Vista Elementary School: The month of January we are collecting food for Buena Vista. The school suggests that we provide peanut butter, jelly, individual fruit cups, breakfast or granola bars, individual mac and cheese cups or individual pasta’s. We need items that the kids can prepare for themselves or snack type items. The Second Harvest collection bins will be out on Sundays for these donations. If you have any questions, contact Lisa Kafader.

Room in the Inn at First Lutheran Church: You can still sign up to spend the night or host a meal! Available dates are Jan. 21, Feb. 18, and Mar. 4 & 18. Check the sign- up board located in the Gernert Room. Contact Tricia Gordon or the church office with any questions.

Also, we would like to honor Lisa and Mark Kafader for all of their hard work and dedication to Room in the Inn for the last seven years. Through their commitment, we have housed over 1,000 men here at First. Please join us in honoring them with a donation to Room in the Inn by using the special giving envelopes in the pews. Thank you, Lisa and Mark!
