  • G.I.G. (Growing In God) Every day we are challenged in our faith in new and sometimes exciting, sometimes hard ways. In response to that, we are changing how we learn about our faith and learning about each other as fellow Christians here at First Lutheran.

    We are proud to introduce our new Sunday and Wednesday programs G.I.G., Growing In God. With GIG, we are looking at different ways for Christians of all ages to talk and learn about God. We know God is speaking to each and every one of us through the Holy Spirit and that we are all given this gift to spread hope to each other.

    Every Sunday morning, people of all ages are invited to join us between services to group up and engage in different ways of sharing and experiencing our faith and God’s love for us! All while enjoying some delicious caramel roles, juice, and coffee!

    If you have any questions please let us know! See you at G.I.G.!
