LIFE EVENTS

 
 

BAPTISMS

 
Baptism is a gift from God offered to all as a “mark” of faith in Jesus Christ. By water and the Holy Spirit, we receive the gift of God’s forgiveness and grace, and through our baptism, we are commissioned for a life of love and service as a child of God.
 
We offer baptisms for infants, children and adults. Parents or individuals desiring to be baptized are expected to attend a baptism class to help you prepare for this milestone. The baptism class is typically offered on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. Parents need only attend the class once. To schedule a baptism at First Lutheran, please call the church office at 320.762.2196.

FUNERALS

 
The death of a loved one is one of the most difficult things we experience in life. At First Lutheran, we are here to walk with you during those days and weeks surrounding your loss.
 
First Lutheran provides a funeral planning packet that we encourage members to prayerfully consider and as a resource as you plan your funeral. The funeral or memorial service is first and foremost a time of worship and a celebration of the hope that is ours as believers in Christ. Making a plan in advance is a great help for your loved ones and lets them know what your wishes are. The funeral planning packet can be picked up in the church office. 
 
The first step when you have experienced the death of a loved one is to contact of of the area funeral homes:
Anderson’s Funeral Home: 320.763.5900
Lind Family Funeral Home: 320.335.2000
 
The funeral home you work with will contact the church and work with our pastors and staff to coordinate the service. If you have any questions in regards to funeral planning or arrangements, please call the church office at 320.762.2196.
