As Christians, we worship a triune God: God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. While it may be easier to grasp the idea of a relationship when we speak about the Father and the Son, the Holy Spirit throws a different dimension into the mix. Yet, from the witness of Scripture, we know that the Holy Spirit is critical to the life of the believer and the church. This series is designed to help us understand the power of the Spirit in our lives and allow it to lead us.

Join us for live music, kid’s activities, informational booths, food, speakers, and more! This FREE event is sponsored by Alexandria Area Indivisible and Citizens for a Sustainable Future. Bring the whole family and join as you are able!

Help God’s creation by planting a tree! This event is hosted by the Care for Creation Team and will take place in the First Lutheran parking lot. Trees will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis with a limit of 2 trees per household. Tree care, mulch, and planting instructions will be available. Please bring a large box, container, or a few 5-gallon buckets to transport your mulch. Trees will thrive best if planted as soon as possible with mulch around the base. Please call Scott with any questions at 218.849.0876.
