The Hunger Free Food Pantry was started in 2010 at our church. We currently serve Eddy County through donations given by the community. Our goal is for a “hunger free” New Rockford and surrounding areas. Hours for the Food Pantry are Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-4. After hour contacts are Sheri at 947-2201 or 652-5223 or Luann at 947-5156. Please know you are welcome to visit us anytime you have a need!
The Sunday worship service is broadcast at 10 a.m. on KDAK 1600 AM radio or cable TV channel 12. If you wish to sponsor a Sunday broadcast in memory or in honor of someone, please call the church office at 947-2478 ~ the cost is $50 for a service.
First Lutheran Foundation was established in 2009. This foundation board, which consists of 5 members, meets on a quarterly basis throughout the year. They deal with large gifts and memorials given to the church and distribute those gifts as needed throughout the church, the community and the world. Contributions allocated according to these guidelines: 25% to Endowment (only interest can be used); 25% to First Lutheran programs; 25% to community projects; 25% to Missions. Professional advice available through ELCA. Contact your tax advisor for State and Federal tax benefits. Contact Foundation board members for more information: Bruce Hirchert, Jeanette Perleberg, Dori Tollefson, Amy Perleberg, Richard Carlson. Please remember First Lutheran in your Estate and Financial planning!
