Tie Blankets

A couple years ago, Grace Braun made and

donated 50 fleece blankets to Blank Children’s Hospital for her Confirmation Internship project. Grace enjoyed the experience so much that she is doing it again with the help of her friends. This time, she has a goal of 150 blankets! In order for Grace to complete her goal, she needs some help. Grace will be accepting donations of money and/or fleece fabric (in 1 1/2 yd cuts). Donations can be given to Grace, April, or left in the office with

Shelley. Grace will also be scheduling some dates on Wednesdays and Sundays so the youth and other church members can help make tie blankets for another

Christmas delivery! (Dates to be determined later).




The Thankoffering service is a time to celebrate Women of the ELCA and to tell about their

commitment to the Churchwide Women’s

Organization. We encourage everyone to give a Thankoffering on October 21st or 22nd so that we may continue to support the life changing

ministries of the Women of the ELCA.


Reformation Moments


On October 29th, we will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. In preparation of this important date, we will be having short video clips during worship services leading up to October 29th that will help us get back in touch with our Lutheran faith. The clips are around 4 minutes each and will include:

Oct. 21 & 22 Lutheran Confession


Hurricane Disaster Relief


Envelopes for the hurricane disaster relief are located in the Narthex. Please take an envelope and give as you are able. Make checks payable to: First Lutheran Church and we will send one online payment. Thank you!


Looking For Veterans and Active Military


We are collecting the names and address of our

Veterans and those currently serving our country. We do not want to forget anyone! If you have this

information, please call or email Jodi Grein.

Phone: 515-341-6509 Email: jodigrein@hotmail.com.

Thank you!


Hearing Assisted Devices Available!!!


Another great addition has been added to First Lutheran. Hearing assisted devices were added this week for use by anyone needing assistance with hearing the

worship service better. The portable units will be kept in the office. Just stop in the office to pick up a unit along with earbuds. Each person will get their own set of

earbuds to store here at church.

Eventually we hope to have

little plastic boxes to store the earbuds in; however, until then please use the

provided plastic bag and label it with your name. A big thank you to all who were 

instrumental in getting these ordered and installed. What a wonderful addition this is to First Lutheran!
