fathers day 2

The word “daddy: is not defined by whether or not a man has a biological child. You can never produce a child and be Daddy, likewise you can have 20 kids and never be a “daddy”. A Daddy is a man who cares for a child’s both physical and emotional needs. He puts the child’s wants and needs ahead of his own. A true Daddy is hard to come by, but a truly special thing.

gift giving 

Many gifts…….. As you sit in your pew, and gaze upon the cross and our beautiful altar, have you ever wondered where this came from? Many items in our church are gifts and their plaques save the history o f where they came from. Sometime , go up to our altar and lift up the parament on the right side. Under there, you will see a beautiful gold plaque with the inscription:


The current family members at First Lutheran are John Shober, Jr., Jerry Shober, Paul Shober and Wally Guptill.
