Wednesday School is when we gather all of our kids from our “Littlest Group”- sixth graders for a fun time of faith formation. Families are encouraged to attend together. 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 7:00.
For more information, and to register, please contact: Melissa Ramshead, Director of Faith Formation (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Or call the church office (701)852-4853.
Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School is offered for children and families each summer. Last summer we launched “Families Celebrate Summer” This gave families lots of ways to engage throughout the summer. Watch this space next spring for information and registration for VBS 2023.
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.

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.
The youth group typically travels each summer, alternating service/learning trips with the national youth gathering, which is held every 3 years. The location for our 2023 summer trip has not been announced yet. The summer 2024 trip will be to the National Youth Gathering in New Orleans, Louisiana. 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.
