Our general fund is the "tithe" fund. The majority of our members give their weekly offerings to this fund. It is the fund we use to pay the bills that keep the ministry running. It is also the fund that pays out our gifts to the ministries both globally and locally that we are in partnership with.
For more information about giving to this fund contact our Administrator, Daniel Damico at 701-235-7389, or by email at email@example.com.
The First Lutheran Foundation is a vital component of the ministry of First Lutheran Church. It was established as a separate incorporated extension of the church to accept gifts to be held in an endowment fund. The contribution principal is invested in perpetuity. A gift to the Foundation is a gift that keeps on giving.
The purpose of the Foundation's funds is to make disbursements to expand the witness and mission of First Lutheran Church, and to support special missions of the Christian Church in the community, region, and world. The Foundation Board, in response to formal, written grant requests, determines annual disbursements from the endowment fund.

The 20/20 Club
If you have a passion for First Lutheran church and want to see the building and grounds preserved, here is an opportunity to make a difference!
The First Lutheran Church 20/20 Club has been formed to provide the funds necessary to maintain a facility like ours. The goal of the club is to fund 20 major projects by the year 2020. We are blessed to have a beautiful place in which to worship. It would cost at least $15 million to replace. Parts of it are almost 100 years old. Too often major repairs or renovations become necessary which are too large to be included in the annual budget.
Funds donated to the 20/20 Club, principal AND interest, will be used exclusively to pay for these projects.
Please consider becoming a member of the 20/20 Club so that First Lutheran Church will continue to be a church that we can all be proud of and serve as an inspiration for all who come here to receive his Word.
Restricted Giving at First Lutheran is a banquet table of generosity. At any given time there are many projects going on at the church. If you like to give to specific projects we likely have one that fits your needs.
