Our Ministry Together

Purposeful Ministries & Fellowship

Grow in your faith in God with the loving family of believers at First Lutheran Church in Janesville, Wisconsin. Join our encouraging ministries and fellowship, and have a deeper understanding of the gospel and the teachings of Scripture.

BG’s

If you’re interested in lawn care, painting, and other odd jobs, this is a great group to serve with. This group gathers every Tuesday morning at 8am to perform maintenance duties here in FLC. Call the church office at 608.752.7434 x10, for more information.

Altar Guild

This group makes sure that the sacristy and altar area is well-kept and flowing with the appropriate seasonal paraments. Contact Jeanie at 608.752.7434 x10 to join them.

Knitters

Join our Tuesday morning knitters in Fellowship Hall at 9am to knit or crochet. They will be your fellowship in faith while providing an important ministry tool called “made with Love at FLC”.

Quilters

Are you looking for a way to get involved and have a love for quilting?  If so, join our Monday Morning Quilters each Monday at 9am in the Fellowship Hall.  One of the biggest projects for the Monday Morning quilters is making a quilt for the annual Lutherdale Quilt Auction. Some of our other activities include making baby quilts for the annual baby shower sponsored by UWEX-HCE, blankets and quilts for the Linus Project for Christmas gifts for foster children in Rock County, pillowcases for the Million Pillowcase Challenge going to the UW Children’s Hospital for cancer patients, and making pillowcase dresses for girls in Haiti.

Mission Sewers

Every 1st, 3rd, and 5th Wednesday mornings, Mission Sewers produce quilts for third-world countries and locals who are unable to provide warm blankets for their families. Hundreds of blankets made in faith and love travel thousands of miles each year, to ensure that we all have something to wrap up in at night.

First Lutheran Church Women (FLCW)

The First Lutheran Church Women includes all women at FLC. There are service roles, fellowship roles, and leadership roles available for you to get involved in. Visit womenoftheelca.org to learn more about this amazing ministry, or call Jan at 608.295.3381 for meeting times.
