Our Endowment Fund was established in 1998 to manage the assets donated to First Lutheran by members in accordance with their desires and within the context of our congregation policies. Currently, funds have been allocated to such mission projects as eyeglass clinics and student scholarships which are part of our church’s Nicaragua connections. Local mission efforts have included financial support for parents sending their children to our Open Arms Child Development Center. All are eligible and welcomed to join in this effort.
