Sunday and Wednesday School

This fall we will be having family style faith formation classes. This means that parents will need to attend with their kids. We will be giving families the opportunity to learn and grow in their faith together. In order to best keep everyone safe, preregistration is required.  

Beginning in October we will be meeting in the Parish Hall on Sunday mornings from 10:45-11:45. 

 On Wednesdays we will be meeting in the Parish Hall from 6-7 pm. 

For more information please contact: Melissa Ramshead, Director of Faith Formation (
Or call the church office (701)852-4853.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is usually held in June for students in preschool through 6th grade. It is open to members and non-members of First Lutheran Church.

2020 Vacation Bible School:
Plans pending



All 7th – 9th grade students are invited to participate in Confirmation. We will meet Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:00 pm. Class formats will include large and small group learning. This year will undoubtedly be unique, but we look forward to learning and growing together in faith, come what may!

Camp Metigoshe

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 (

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.
