Online giving offers convenience for you and consistency for our congregation. It eliminates frequent check writing and helps you stay on track with your offerings, even when you are unable to attend church. Contributions can be sent automatically from your checking or savings account, or by using your credit or debit card. Giving online is safe and easy. Use your computer or tablet, smartphone or send a text. Of course, contributions are always welcomed in person or by mail to First Lutheran Church, 604 W Broadway, Decorah, Iowa 52101.

Spreading God’s Joy – The 2022 Annual Campaign letter is being sent to over 400 households. Watch for it in your mailboxes. The Council has three goals that we hope you will join us to accomplish:

  1. Every household contributes at least $1 on or before June 12 as a way to renew their active membership in the congregation. (Please put your offering–with your name–in an envelope or give online, because we must officially record donations from active members.)
  2. Every household will consider giving a percentage of your weekly or monthly income to God through FLC. This way all of us can share proportionately in the support of FLC’s ministries.
  3. Every household will consider stepping up your offering 1%; for example from giving 2% to 3% of their income to support FLC’s growth.
