Over 240 ELCA missionaries serve in more than 40 countries around the world, invited by global church partners to work together hand-in-hand. Some are doctors in rural areas. Others teach children where there are few opportunities to go to school, or work in seminaries that prepare pastors and future church leaders. Others support, nurture and preach in some of the fastest growing Lutheran congregations in the world.

First Lutheran is one of the largest supporters of ELCA missionaries in the country. We sponsor scores of missionaries each year to partner with the larger church in work around the world.

Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

-2 Corinthians 9:7

We are a community of cheerful givers, sharing all that God has first given us. We give in ways that use our gifts of time and talent to bless others. Our members prayerfully consider how they can best share with God’s kingdom what was first shared with them.
