Servant/Volunteer Opportunities at First Lutheran
Please take the SPIRITUAL GIFTS ASSESSMENT and send us your results. It takes about 20 minutes to do (it's 60 questions), and it will help you identify in which areas you are gifted. This is in two parts - the Spritial Gifts Assessment and the result "cluster" sheet in which you enter your results. Please click on each of the forms above to download the 2 PDF forms, print out, complete and return your results to the church office. Be sure to put your name on it. You may also email your results by sending it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please take the time to also fill out the MEMEBER INFORMATION UPDATE & GIFT INVENTORY FORM. Click here to download this PDF form. You may either mail or drop off this form to the church office, or email it directly by clicking on the link at the bottom of the form.
Here are some of the many volunteer possibilities:
Greeters – Volunteers come early to greet incoming church goers. They also are available at the end of the service to thank people for coming as they leave by one of the side doors. This is a good family activity.
For any of the above volunteer opportunities, contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Vicki Rusch, at 852-4853, or email at email@example.com.
Ushers – Typically, four ushers are needed for every service. They help people get seated, hand out bulletins, help take the offering, guide people forward for communion, and take attendance. This is a great opportunity for families to serve together.
Deaconess – A group of 50 women serve (two person teams, with each team serving for 2 weeks during the year) by making visits to the bereaved, and those who are in the hospital, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or shut-ins in their own homes.
Prayer Chain – Approximately 70 women make up our prayer chain, which consists of eight chains, with 8-10 people in each chain. When a request comes in, they pray for the person in need, and then pass it on the next person in the chain. Prayers requests can be for yourself, for a loved one, or for a friend. If you have a prayer need, or are interested in being a caller, please contact the church office at 852-4853.

Volunteers for Church Events
First Lutheran Church is involved in many community events.
The two major events are the North Dakota State Fair and the Hostfest.
At the state fair, we have a food stand where we sell hamburgers, hot dogs, and fresh, made daily potato salad and pies.
At the Hostfest, we have two booths that sell rommegrot. Both of these events take lots of volunteers to organize, set-up, make, serve, and clean-up.
If you would be interested in either of these events in any way, please call the church office at 852-4853, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
