Below is a listing of opportunities that the Evangelism Committee provides throughout the year at First Lutheran.
Serve on the Evangelism/Fellowship Committee: The Evangelism Committee leads congregation members to share the Gospel with others and invite the unchurched to worship. Ensures visitors are warmly welcomed, and cares for inactive and new members. The Committee meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.
New Member Sponsor: This person helps new members feel at home in the congregation. A new member sponsor attends the new member orientation meeting with the assigned new member, sits with him/her/them during worship on the day the new members joins the church, and takes special care over the next six months to make the new member feel welcome at congregational events.
New Member Visits: Through the names received via the guest book and record of fellowship pads, you will be put on a list of individuals willing to visit recent guests of First Lutheran. All materials are available in the Church Office. You will call the guest and set up a time to visit them and answer any questions they may have about First Lutheran. You may be asked to visit a family one or two times a year.
Visit the Church of the Damascus Road (Prison Ministry) Occasionally a visit to the Church of the Damascus Road is scheduled. Worship is held on Wednesday nights.
Adult Fellowship Activities: At least two times a year the Algona Family YMCA will send out flyers asking for churches to have a team for volleyball (January) and softball (June, July). Teams meet late Sunday afternoon (at 4:00 or 5:00 p.m.) for up to six weeks.

Men’s Discussion Group: Join the group of men that have met on Thursday mornings at 7:00 a.m. to discuss topics in the areas of religion.


Participant each Spring & Fall in Adopt a Highway Clean-up: Be a part of a team of First Lutheran members that clean the two-mile stretch of our Adopted Highway along Highway 18. This is usually done on a Saturday morning or a Sunday afternoon.  

Coffee Fellowship Hosts: Volunteers need to prepare coffee, orange juice and set out rolls, as well as clean-up the kitchen following the hour. (September through May coffee and treats are used as youth fundraisers).

June through August: Volunteer for coffee fellowship during the summer months. Start time will be following the 9:00 a.m. worship service.
New Members Welcome/Special Occasions: If you would like to be contacted to host a new member welcome or any other special occasion that First Lutheran may have, please contact the church office.
Social Groups:
T&T’s (20s & 30s): The T&T’s group has been on hiatus the past several years. If you would be willing to host a gathering for fellow members in the 20s & 30s age group, please contact the church office.
YACHT Club (Young Adult Christians Hangin’ Together): The YACHT Club is going on into its tenth year of activity. Recent events that the YACHT Club-ers held were a pontooning at Oak Lake, bonfires, and a poor man’s tropical vacation. First Lutheran members in the “40 plus” range are invited to attend.
Sixty Plus Potluck: The Sixty Plus Potluck (those ages 60 plus) meets the second Friday of each month for a meal and program at noon. Individuals and families are asked to bring a dish to share with the group and their own table service for easy clean-up.
Give a Program to the Sixty Plus Group: This group is always looking for a good program. Do you have an interesting hobby of which you would like to share? Have you been someplace unique of which you have pictures and a story to tell? Contact the church office if you have a program idea.
Sunday Scrappers: The Sunday Scrappers meet once a month to work on their scrapbook albums. You need not be a “scrapper” to attend. If you have a pile of pictures waiting for photo albums you are more than welcome. The time frame is 1:00-5:00 p.m. on a Sunday afternoon at the home of a fellow scrapper, or sometimes in the church Fellowship Hall.
