THANK YOU Your continued financial support of the congregation is helping us to keep the ministry going while adapting to new online opportunities for ministry!  Thank you for your continued generosity!

HOME Holy Communion Package: As we have entered into a time of observing weekly communion virtually in our homes, you may contact the Church Office to receive a package of wafers for the celebration of Holy Communion. A bag with a month’s supply will be brought out to your car while observing safe practices. Luther reminds us that the sacrament is valid when we trust the promise of Christ in the sacrament. And, as we confess belief in the communion of saints, we trust God’s presence in our virtual gatherings for worship. Please contact the Church Office as 409-762-8477 to arrange for your package of wafers.

Father’s Day Booklet’s available to pickup in the church office. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this fundraiser to send our high schoolers to the ELCA’s National Youth Gathering! And happy Father’s Day to all these wonderful dads. Feel free to stop by the office to pick up your book any time between 9AM and 4PM, Monday-Friday.

Kids' Mission
Calling all Secret Agents! This fall, Faith Formation classes for K-6th grade will at home. Kids will be asked to train as Secret Agents of God to help make the world a better place. Each week, they will watch a Secret Agent Training video with a bible story, song, and activity (each child will get an activity pack like the at-home VBS program). They will also receive a weekly Secret Mission from the children’s message during the church service. Once per month, they will be able to log into a special Secret Agent meeting on Go-To-Meeting. Does your child want to be a Secret Agent of God? Click to REGISTER NOW on our webpage and to see the lastest info! Or, contact Emily: emily@firstlutherangalveston.com.
