A Message from Pastor Gretchen Enoch

Dear Ones,

Much has changed in the past days, while the love that God has for us is unchanging.

For the health and safety of our community and the people of First Lutheran Church we will be suspending all in person gatherings of more than 10 people, this includes, Worship Services, Sunday School, confirmation classes, bible studies, and adult/youth fellowship groups, until further notice.

The ELCA churches of Fergus Falls have joined together to provide worship opportunities on Sunday mornings and mid-week Wednesdays services. All worship services are closed to the public, but will be live-streamed on YouTube and on-air on KBRF AM1250 or Channel 977 FM97.7 at 9:30am on Sundays and 6:30pm on Wednesdays. The building will be closed to the public until further notice, but the church office will be staffed from 9 a.m.-1 p.m Mon.-Thurs. as we are able.

A reminder from Carrie Newcomer, who is an American singer, songwriter and author,”Take this time to be still, heal from the daily stress we endure, read, pray, and reconnect to the people you love most.”

Please contact the church office at 218-739-3348 or office@flcff.org if you or someone you know needs assistance of any kind.

Please use this devotional as you deepen your relationship with God during this tumultuous time. 


God is with us,
Pastor Gretchen

Easter Sunday April 12, 2020 Bulletin

Community of Fergus Falls Resources

These forms are for members of the Fergus Falls Area community who are affected by COVID – 19 to safely request support, skills, resources, supplies, space and time from other community members.

Though COVID-19 is only just beginning to impact our city, many of our neighbors have already been affected. This means we need to show up for each other. Especially for those who are at great risk (the elderly, the immuno-compromised, those with chronic illnesses, those with little to no access to health care)

Before filling out this form, we encourage you to read the Fergus Falls COVID-19 Resources list to see if there are any resources already in place to help you: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CVyVBSZ0MDRHdnd9otiEqqo30PCcKc2_sr2-YkSvqhc/edit# 

To request support please fill out this survey. We will work as quickly as we can to match you with a volunteer to help you out. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeFWk-sZg64u5xmoKKTRCO_VF4CZSIWMG83SIfceQDedIY6Bw/viewform
