Leadership of the congregation

Lutheran congregations treasure and value the gifts of all God’s people. Congregations are usually led by a Congregation Council, comprised of congregation members from a variety of backgrounds. The council, elected by the congregation, guides the congregation in its mission and ministry.

At First Lutheran Church we are blessed with a talented and dedicated council. Members of the council meet once a month to consider the work of the congregation, and to work with the pastoral staff in meeting the needs of the congregation and the community.

The 2021 First Lutheran Church Congregation Council will remain as follows until Annual Meeting:
Dotti Ford, President
Lynn Thomas, Vice President
Kathy Gobert, Secretary
Bill Ehrhardt, Treasurer (non-voting position)
Steve Bolek
George Botbyl
Ken Groh
Jeff Gudwer
Howard Haulotte
Mary Herro
Dirk Manson
Ray Miller
