Any male that is a member of First Lutheran is a member of the Men's Club. We meet the second Monday of the month at 6:30 in the fellowship hall. Please join our ministry!
The meetings last about a half hour long. There is discussion on the needs of the Church requested by the Church Trustees. Most of the needs are not budgeted items such as lawn mowers and equipment, kitchen repairs, or unexpected items. Someone typically provides a dessert.
Items the Men's Club have supported are:
1. Replaced flooring in the educational wing
2. Replaced water heater in the kitchen
3. Repaired the gas stove in the kitchen
4. Assisted families with financial needs to camps
5. Purchase needed tools and equipment for Lutheran Island Camp
The only fundraising the Men's club does is the wild game feed held in December and cinnamon rolls they sell once a month from October through May.
Annual Men's Club fishing trip is designated to take the active, older members out fishing. They typically need assistance and cannot fish on their own. In the evening a fish dinner is prepared for them.
Their Menu Never Disappoints.
Free will offering. They use the money for their missions.

Our trip to the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods is now scheduled for June 27-30! Hopefully, we will be allowed to cross the Canadian border this year! Block out these dates and let Greg Taylor or Dick Buech know if you still plan to attend, would like to join us this year, or would like more information.
The women of the church use their mission money for local, district and national missions. For more information on how you can be involved contact the church office.
The quilters of First Lutheran give to Lutheran Missions World Relief, Grace House, Elder Circle, the hospital, and nursing homes. They make 75-100 quilts a year!
The ladies meet every Tuesday from 9:00 - 11:00 am. 2-4 wonderful ladies show up to make these beautiful quilts. They can always use more hands to help craft the quilts. Just show up.
Doris MacDonald is shown running the sewing machine. She made quilts for over 70 years.
Thank you ladies for all that you do! The quilts are beautiful!
The ladies of the church come together to provide a meal for the family and friends of their loved one after passing. This ministry helps in so many ways than just serving food. You are giving a piece of mind to the family that they don't have to think about how to feed their family and friends when grieving. It is about being present for the family so they can grieve.
