The Profiles in Faith award is given to those members whose lives faithfully reflect a love of God and dedication to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. We, at First Lutheran Church, have each received the incredible life giving gift of faith.   We witness this amazing gift of faith through the many people who are members of God’s loving family here at First. We are blessed!
