News & Newsletter
First Lutheran Church of San Diego welcomes you to receive Communion regardless of denominational affiliation or church membership. All our communion tables are open, in the sanctuary and on our patio, on Mondays and Fridays where hundreds come to receive their daily bread. Restrooms are available as you leave the sanctuary to the right. There is a nursery for little ones throughout the morning (see an usher for directions).
Please remember to fill out your Estimate of Giving Form, which you’ll find online. Here is the link if you need it again.
Neighbors Together: A Lenten and Resurrection Offering Opportunity
Over the past few years First Lutheran has joined with sister congregations to support a refugee family from Eritrea. Regat and her children have literally been living at our sister Lutheran church for the past two years as they await their asylum hearing. Thanks to Neighbors Together they have been welcomed, supported, been able to find employment and healthcare, and attend school. You may watch the testimony portion of The Third Sunday of Lent worship on our YouTube Channel, introduced by Susan White and given by the coordinator Jackie Hanson, to hear more of their story.
The Church Council was able to approve, on Tuesday March 16 (a tad late but better than never) that our Lenten Special Offerings will go to the continued support of Regat and her children. Because we were late the special offering this year will continue through the season of Easter as a Resurrection Gift. We have walked through the season of darkness with the family, let us now celebrate with our generosity and help them rise up, and we give thanks in the season of new life!
Please consider giving through First (Neighbors Together in the memo line of a check or Lenten Offering if giving online) or, if you wish, you may send a check directly to them. Our Office Administrator, Hannah, will be happy to provide necessary information.
