We a t F i r s t L u t h e r a n a r e g l a d y o u h a v e c h o s e n t o w o r s h i p w i t h u s t o d a y ! We understand that visiting a church can be overwhelming as everything is unfamiliar and unknown. All the baptized are welcome to fully participate in worship, including Holy Communion, and all are welcome to participate in church programs, activities and events. If this is your first time at First, we’d love to have you stop at the Connecting Point table in the narthex entry where you may ask questions, share your contact information and receive a gift from us. We hope worshiping with us today will bless you as much as your visit blesses us! Baptismal blessings are extended to Claire Morgan Mielke, daughter of Michael & Emilee Mielke and Tyson Scott Trussoni, son of Shane & Elisa Trussoni and Brielle Lee Heineck, daughter of Brooks & Roy Heineck

Office Manager: Jane Frick Passing on Faith Coord.: Carla Stanton Sunday School Superintendents: Sheri Betz & Tawni O’Rourke Young Youth Coord.: Katie Everson Communications & Marketing Coord.: Andrew Stutesman, Head Custodian: Mike Peper

Wedding blessings are extended to Whitney Welch & Nolan Schmidt

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE Please take time before worship & go to the narthex to write down any prayers you want to lift up, so we can be certain to include them in worship today!

COMMUNION CARDS Communion cards are not required to participate in Holy Communion, but they help us know who is worshiping with us. Please fill one out and hand it to an usher just before Communion, or place it in an offering plate. Thanks!


This Sunday, November 9 First is taking a special offering as you leave worship to support HALOS, which is a program that First has adopted as part of our Church in Society Ministry. The Mission of HALOS is to improve the quality of life for child victims of abuse and/or neglect who are involved with La Crosse Human Services.
