First Lutheran Church gives back to our members, our community, and initiatives we believe in.
Without the giving of talents and financial support, we could not be. Thank you.
We are open to ideas in how you'd like to be involved with our church.
We had a "noisy collection" each month we had a lose change offering from our congregation. With this we were able to send money to Africa so Christians can purchase farm animals to help feed the community.
Each spring members help in the town clean up, making Battle Lake the best place to live! We host everyone for a lunch of thanks each day.
Recently our church started an Endowment Fund, so that we can support members when requests happen. We are making it a practice to give when we can.
A couple of times in the year, the Men's Club buys food and delivers food to families in need. Every table should be set for thanks.
Our church has a very active Quilting Club. They offer carefully made blankets for members of need, to churches we support and also ship them off to organizations who have the need in keeping fellow Christians warm.
Each year our congregations offers scholarships for attending Bible camps, special events and towards college.
Many members like the flexibility of mailing their donations to the office. To do this, simply send to First Lutheran Church, Darlene Akerman, 505 Holdt Street, Battle Lake, MN 56515
Each Sunday we take time to gather our offering.
If you'd like giving envelopes; please request from the church.
Our church has a relationship with a financial organization to accept stock donations. A sensible method in giving to 501C3 organizations.
