Wednesday School and Second Sunday
Regular Faith Formation sessions are underway! We gather for supper in the Parish Hall starting at 5:00 (optional), meet in the sanctuary at 5:45 for worship, and break out into classrooms until 6:45. Please join us! To register for Wednesday School please follow this link: https://forms.gle/pvUDVjiHgQjMVGUD7
Instead of traditional Sunday school this year we will be launching “Second Sunday” events. Each month, on the second Sunday, we will have a special, intergenerational event. These events typically will take place at church, directly after the morning church service from 10:45-11:30.
For more information please contact: Melissa Ramshead, Director of Faith Formation (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Or call the church office (701)852-4853.
Vacation Bible School

Every summer there are many wonderful camp experiences available at Camp Metigoshe. Anyone who attended camp will be mailed a brochure for the following summer’s camp opportunities. If you do not receive the Metigoshe Ministries Summer Camp brochure, you can pick one up at the church office or visit their website (www.metigosheministries.com).
First Lutheran will pay 1/3 of the cost of one camp session, per year, for members. Please register directly with Camp Metigoshe first, and then call the church to inform us of your scheduled camp.
If your camp is in June, you must let the church know by May 15th. If your camp is in July or August, you must let the church know by June 15th. Please remember that the camp does not coordinate this information back to the individual churches, so it is your responsibility to notify the church office by the above dates. If you do not meet the deadlines, you will be responsible for the entire fee when going to camp.
WND Synod LYO Gathering
LYO (Lutheran Youth Organization) Synod Youth Gathering is an annual event for youth in grades 9-12. We gather from across Western North Dakota for one weekend in October to learn how God is at work, serve the local community, and overall just have fun! There is usually a dance party, awesome speakers, and great food.
LYO has an Instagram page to follow: LYO_WestNoDak Talk to Melissa if you have any questions, or want to register!
Youth Group — 48* North
Youth in grades 7-12 are invited to participate in 48* North, the youth group at FLC. Youth group is a great opportunity to hang out with friends old and new, dig into Bible studies, grow in your faith. Each month the youth group will meet at a local coffee house for fellowship, and coffee.
The youth group typically travels each summer, alternating service/learning trips with the national youth gathering, which is held every 3 years. The summer 2022 trip will be to the National Youth Gathering in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Gathering is July 24th-28th. We will be adding on a couple of days before and after the Gathering as well. Contact Melissa Ramshead (FirstLutheranEdu@gmail.com) with any questions, or for more information.
