Dear First Lutheran Church Members,
Due to the Coronavirus, and the need to limit contact, we are cancelling all worship services and activities at First Lutheran for the time being.
Please folow the Minnesota Stay at Home directive. Church staff will be in the office, but we encourage you to email, or call if you need assistance or need to connect with one of them.
We thank you for your patience during this time of constant change.
Life can get crazy. We can lose our way very quickly when we leave the building after worship. Why not reset and refocus yourself on Jesus and his mission in the middle of the week. Starting in October we are going to meet on Wednesday’s at noon. We will start with some “Mindful movements”. These are slow stretching movements, easily adaptable for anyone. The idea is to be mindful of your body. Next we will spend some time in silent prayer followed by a pray walk around the block, praying for our community and the world. Again you can adapt to your own situation. This will take @ 30 minutes. People can remain after if they wish to discuss the experience or anything else. This will non political, very ecumenical and welcoming since we won’t be talking about any doctrine. We won’t be talking.
