St. Paul Easter Bags – we are collecting cash and gifts to assemble bags for 100 women and 50 children as part of our 50 Days of Easter activities. They will be delivered to St. Paul’s on April 22nd when we also provide breakfast for them.

Manna Bags – Don’t forget to pick up your manna bags and keep them in your car or when you are out and about. It is a wonderful way to help our homeless neighbors.

Habitat Build – Thrivent has obtained funds for us to build another Habitat Home this year. The build will take place the weekend of May 5th. Contact Ron Tharp or the church office for further information.

The Buena Vista fourth grade classes are planning to take their year-end trip to the Tennessee Aquarium. Again, we at First will help them with the bus expense of $1,000. If you are interested in donating, please write a check to Buena Vista school and place it in the offering plate.

Buena Vista Food Drive: our cupboards are overflowing because of your donations of food for Buena Vista. Thank You! Each Friday over 200 students take home a small bag of food to help them through the week-end. Keep the flood of food coming! Peanut butter, kid-friendly snacks and Kroger gift cards are welcome.

Kroger cards – If you have not already linked your rewards card to First Lutheran please go to the Kroger website and link you card. Our NPO number is 88518. This must be done every year for us to receive credit.
